La-150M by S.A.Lavochkin

Pre-production series development of the La-150. Fuel tanks capacity was increased, tailfin enlarged. Curved windscreen was replaced by the flat one (more technological). As a result of all those changes, flight weight increased by 300-400kg. Aircraft still was unable to fulfill all requirements (TTKh).

At the same time handling problems were fixed. Small pre-production butch of the La-150M was sent to fighter regiments for evaluation. Regiment tests continued until September 1947. La-150M was not accepted by military and remained an experimental aircraft.
