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

Jet 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 (563 kg against 553 kg on the La-150).
Flight tested during October 1946 - August 1947, not accepted for production.
