As for performance, the characteristics of the Yak-7 proved to be very similar to those of the Yak-1 fighter. At an all-up weight of 2,960 kg (6,527Ib), which was 160 kg (353 Ib) higher than that of the Yak-7UTI, the Yak-7 fighter attained a maximum speed of 471 kmlh (293 mph) at sea level and 560 kmlh (348 mph) at 5,000 m (16,400 ft).
