Translated Rechline document of a La-5fn in English
Nice, but from what I'm able to recognize it's a German LA-5FN test.
Looking interesting.THX Micdrow.
I am not a good student of Russian fighters.
Does anyone know if these late war designs were fitted with armour and/or fire suppression technology.
This is an impressive appraisal. Surpised that it was dated 20 March 1945 however. You would have thought the evaluation would have been done earlier.
The report confirms statements I have read elsewhere, but these other sources were much cruder in their description. They basically said "avoid dogfights with these a/c at lower altitudes"
Final question, these a/c were made of wood basically. Were they as strong as the LW contemporaries???

I was not entirely satisfied with the above translation, so I made my own. Note that there is one data point where I have a slightly different speed which comes directly from the original scan. (Must be a typo in the above translation.)
Armament: 2x 20 mm cannon with 200 rounds each
To the front 57 mm armour glass windscreen
To the rear 68 mm armour glass as head protection and 7 mm back armour
Great job there Henning, Many thanks for the translation.
