Thanks Borovik!

The wing shape is very similar to the Mustang wing...

Hi! La-168. Ancestor of La-174, La-176 and La-15.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavochkin_La-168

Design and development
Aircraft 168 was preceded by the Lavochkin La-160 jet fighter which was the first to utilize swept wing surfaces first researched by the Germans, but it moved the engine from the nose to behind the pilot. It resembled the Mikoyan MiG-15 and used the same cannon-armament and the Rolls-Royce Nene II engine. Unlike the MiG-15, the La-168 had shoulder mounted wings and a t-tail layout. Due to Lavochkin's decision to wait with La-168 development for the Nene II engine, the MiG-15, first flown with the less powerful Nene I, was available four months earlier, giving it a crucial advantage.
Aircraft 168's first flight was on April 22, 1948, with I. E. Fedorov at the controls. Trials continued until February 19, 1949, when testing of the cannons at high altitude caused the canopy to collapse, resulting in a nearly fatal crash. In the end, the Lavochkin fighter lost out to the competing MiG-15. Another 168 derivative was the La-176, the first Soviet plane to achieve supersonic flight (in a shallow dive) on December 26, 1948.
A scaled down version of this aircraft powered by a Rolls-Royce Derwent, was produced as Aircraft 174, prototype of the production La-15, which although well liked and having superior performance, was more expensive and harder to mass-produce than the MiG-15.[1]
Variants
Aircraft 176 - One Aircraft 168 produced with 45° swept wings and tailplane. Believed to be first Soviet aircraft to exceed Mach 1.0 albeit in a dive. Crashed whilst supersonic when canopy collapsed.
Aircraft 174 - A 0.9 scale version of aircraft 168 which was productionised as the La-15.

Hi! La-176.
http://translate.google.fr/translate?hl=fr&sl=ru&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.airwar.ru%2Fenc%2Ffighter%2Fla176.html&sandbox=1

"Flying "176-th" held at the end of 1948 at the airport Saki with the presence of a strong side wind from the sea. Test pilots and Igor Fyodorov O.Sokolovsky engrossed in risky missions. They were delivered almost mystical task - to overcome the speed of sound. No one at the time to do so has not been able to. The flights were made from 10,000 m with a reduction and subsequent conversion into the horizon. For the first time the speed of sound in the La-176 reached the December 26, 1948-th. Until January 1949, such flights were repeated six times. Officially, the Commission registered the result of 1105 km / h at an altitude of 7000 m in the official test report stated:. "This speed of the aircraft in the Soviet Union received the first aircraft flight test materials." 176 "represent a exceptional value for our aircraft."

While the speed of 1105 km / h exceeded the targets set best jets foreign aircraft registered FAI. After replacing the RD-45 engine with a more powerful VK-1 V.Klimova design, the aircraft has reached a ceiling of 15 km. Thus, the creation of La-176 was the most important stage in the development of Russian fighter aircraft. La-176 opened its Mission to Lavochkin prospect of further work on the follow-fighters - La-190 and La-200. Still, the main merit of the La-176 -preodolenie sound barrier. It was interesting to learn about this exciting moment from the test pilot I.Fedorova. Ivan Evgrafovich recalls, "it has become clear that the guarantees of survival after him, no Nobody knew almost what it is and whether the aircraft element design head stand, but it tried not to think before flying to overcome the sound barrier... "

La-178, "178" - is La-168, a VK-1 engine.
In 1949, the MAP (Ministry of Aviation Industry) initiated the issue of taking a world speed record for distances 3 and 100km ...
Only project.

In my files,

the early Lavochkin La-150 Project had a different fuselage shape,I am sure
about the Info,but maybe no drawing is survivor,could be a longer than the
built one.
