The development cycle was plagued with problems, especially with the death of the star Soviet test pilot Valery Chkalov in one of the prototypes. The La-5FN was superior both in top speed as well as maneuvering in the vertical. The first prototype flew on March 30, , and once some initial difficulties had been worked out of the design, proved to be promising, if somewhat short of what its designers had hoped for.

Major V. Stoff was designated as the first commander.
Personnel from the first and second squadrons of the IAP flying Ibis fighters , the first squadron of the IAP I , as well as pilots from the IAP and the IAP without their aircraft became the foundation for the newly formed aviation unit. It is important to note that the majority of the pilots of the newly formed regiment at that moment had experience in aerial combat against the Japanese near Lake Khasan and the Khalkin-Gol River, and in Republican Spain. Moreover, prior to March 13, the regiment comprising three squadrons participated in the war against the White Finns, flying sorties, and was in aerial combat four times during which five enemy aircraft would have been shot down - the regiment lost also five aircraft in combat during that war.
Therefore, when at 4 a. Already by the fourth day of the Great Patriotic war the pilots had engaged in their first aerial combat that ended up with victory over the enemy.
Captain Zaytsev claimed three of the German fighters in the ensuing minute dogfight. Alexander P.
Zaytsev was killed on 30 May when he crashed with his Airacobra during a training flight. He had claimed 35 victories including 25 shared. There were also irreplaceable losses alongside the victories. Thus, on June 10, three Is under heavy enemy antiaircraft artillery fire, attacked a vehicle column headed for the front lines. The Guards banner was presented to Guards Colonel Reyfshneyder, regimental commander, on 20th June Pavlov collection. IAP was transformed into the 19th Guards IAP 'for demonstrated courage, heroism and steadfastness in the struggle against fascism' - the Guards Banner was presented to the regiment on June 20th of that year.
In this instance, the aircraft packed in crates arrived directly at the combat regiment, bypassing the reserve aviation regiment 22nd ZAP at Ivanovo. Engineering and technical personnel used their own resources to assemble the aircraft. At first, Soviet pilots approached without confidence the nose-wheel landing gear unusual for that time; however, they very quickly noted the advantages of this landing gear scheme over the traditional scheme with a tail-wheel landing gear: it provided better field of view and simpler control when taxiing.
The pilots also liked the way the fighters handled in the air. Canopy glass provided essentially a circular field of view from the cockpit and the latter was roomy and comfortable even for Western standards, and it had a heater. The significant inner volume of the cockpit was not the least thing in the severe Arctic conditions where pilots were forced to fly wearing warm winter clothing.
The majority of Soviet fighters of that time generally lacked radios and their cockpits were too crowded. Even in the latest MiG, LaGG and Yak aircraft, in the best case transceivers were installed only in the aircraft of the flight commanders. Organization of two-way radio exchanges in the air allowed a significant improvement in tactical employment of the P fighters. Now any pilot, and not just the commander, could either himself warn his comrades of danger or he could himself receive a timely warning.
The emotions of Soviet pilots regarding the armament of the Airacobra were more contradictory.
