La-9 / La-130, S.A.Lavochkin


The La-9 (alias La-130) was a development of the La-126. It looked similar to the La-7, but it had an entirely new all-metal construction. The big problem of the La-9 series was the continuing unavailability of new, more powerful engines, and it never reached its full potential.

Only 16 produced, because improved La-11 was ready.
