Yak-9 armed with a 37.0 mm NS-370 cannon with 300 rounds instead of the 20.9 mm ShVAK, cockpit moved 0.4 m (1 ft 3 in) back to compensate for the heavier nose. Initially poor quality control led to multiple oil and coolant leaks from cannon recoil. Recoil and limited supply of ammunition required accurate aiming and two-three round bursts. Yak-9T was widely used against enemy shipping on theBlack Sea and against tanks, but was also successful against aircraft with a single cannon hit usually sufficient to tear apart the target. Virage time: 18-19 seconds.
