As reliable as possible. I will try to add as many variants as possible later. Feel free to comment here on any of these aircraft or post your own data, pilot accounts etc.

Just read through a series of articles dedicated to this guy, learned some things:

A number of the export version B-339s were using refurbished airliner engines.

On hard landings (so... carrier landings) the wheel struts would bend a bit and cause the wheels to be unable to retract. Mechanics would fix this by shaving off a little bit of metal and, eventually, the resulting 'fixes' would cause the entire system to be so weak that the gear would just break on the next particularly hard landing.

The Finns managed to fix the infamous engine lubrication problems prior to the Continuation War.

Due to an oh-so-common oil leak issue, one Kiwi pilot was forced to clean the windscreen mid combat in Burma by taking off his sock, opening the canopy, and wiping down the screen.

The airplane was a great fighter untill you added things like armor and self sealing tanks. Then the weight went up so much she became underpowerd and slugish.

The last one in the world is a Finnish one.

The Finns did increase the weight by adding some armor and more guns though...

I believe you will find the Finns also had higher rated engines on their export versions.
