In October numerous hindrances were overcome and 63 LaGG-3s were built, 3~ times more than had been produced a month earlier. They were followed by 54 in November and 97 in December. 153, and General Leshukov, the plant's representative of the Commissariat for Defence, who had reported that regular production would be achieved and output would increase, were accused of incompetence byYakovlev, who telephoned Stalin repeatedly, asking that they be replaced. A topical documentary film made with some urgency played an important part in the story.

Performance proved to be rather worse than that of the prototype Type 39. 3mph (530km/h) at sea level and 379mph (610km/h) at 19,000ft (5,800m), and time to 16,400ft (5,000m) was about five minutes (a figure typical of all subsequent La-5FNs). Tearing of the fabric covering from the surface prevented tests with augmented power. During the trials, manufacturing defects were noticed. Top: Semyon Lavochkin (fourth from left) among pilots and co-designers, with an La-5FN in the background. Centre: La-5FNs in post-war service with the Czechoslovakian Air Force.

While it is normal practice to make parts from drawings, this time, on the contrary, final drawings were sometimes made from the parts. At the same time the tooling was being prepared and the process of producing new components was being mastered. 21 handled the task well. The transition to the modified fighter was effected almost without any reduction in the delivery rate to the air force. Following delivery of the first fully operational LaG-5 on 20th June 1942, the Gorkii workers turned out 37 more by the end of the month.
