Oh, yes, of course! I forgot I-16 (I recall to have seen some photo) and lend-lease (having presumably their original drop tanks). Didn't know about Yak-1 and LaGG-3.

I recall drop tanks mentioned on Yak-9 in Black Sea.
Curious, given the already long range of the Yak-9, not to mention the availability of the Yak-9DD.

Can not remember anything about their usage on La-5 and La-7.
Funny! Almost the sole having drop tanks in game!

Thank you very much for your exhaustive reply!
