Yak-9 and Hurricane Collector Plane mention
Interesting note that the Hurricane and Yak-9 (and 9T) Collector Planes were mentioned in this post. They don’t currently appear on the webstore but I expect they will appear shortly (perhaps tomorrow).
At this point we still don’t know if the Yak-9 and Yak-9T will be sold as separate, independent aircraft, or if they will be sold together in a package. Depending on the features that each of them bring to the table, it could be enough to call them separate. Especially if the Yak-9 also gets the 9B, 9D or even 9DD modifications and the Yak-9T gets the Yak-9K (45mm cannon) modifications. Unknown if they will do that but I expect to know more tomorrow!
