    Designed to meet a Soviet specification of 1939 for a High Altitude Interceptor the MiG-1 was first produced in 1940. It proved somewhat difficult to fly and was further refined and modified to produce the classic MiG-3 which was used extensively throughout the war by Soviet Air Defense Squadrons to protect key locations & infrastructure. Other models were developed as prototypes designated MiG-7 & MiG-9 but were not successful and stayed as prototypes. After the war the MiG bureau would of course go on to design some of the best Jet Fighters in the world.
