Two seat dual controls trainer modification of the La-15, armed with single 12.7mm BS machinegun. Flight performance was slightly worser than of the series single-seater.

Two were built, trials were completed in September 1949. Since the La-15 did not enter full-scale manufacturing, trainer production was cancelled.
