La-152 (Type 4) by S.A.Lavochkin

fighter with straight wing, built almost in parallel with the La-150. Experience in the La-150 development was used, because La-152 had slightly later schedule. It had similar size, thinner laminar flow wing and more powerful armament. Airframe was lighter, fuel capacity slightly larger (563kg against 553kg on the La-150).
Flight tested during October 1946 - August 1947, not accepted for production.
