Conventional wisdom is that the LaGG-1 was a dog, the LaGG-3 was much better if not great but it served well when the Soviets needed every airplane they could get, the radial-engined La-5 (especially the refined La-5FN) was a huge leap forward, and the La-7 was a fantastic machine on par with any other fighter of the day at low to medium altitude despite its modest armament. I would love to see a replica La-5 or La-7 with a small radial or another engine hidden under a radial cowl.
