First flown in 1943, designer Semyon Alexe'evich Lavochkin's La-7 fighter was probably the finest Soviet single seater of the second world war and was flown by many Russian Aces including Ivan Kojedub. This craft was a development of Lavochkin's earlier inline engined LaGG-1 and LaGG-3 designs with which he had been assisted by engineers Gudkov and Gorbunov (hence the two capital "G's"). The basic design was then improved through the installation of a radial engine in 1942 and became the La-5 which proved to be twenty-five miles faster than its contemporary adversary, the vaunted German Messerschmitt 109F. The La-7 was the final wartime refinement of the original design and saw extensive service all along the Eastern Front.
