Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Offensive armament

Weapon 13 x 23 mm NS-23 cannon
Ammunition225 rounds
Fire rate600 shots/min
Main article: NS-23 (23 mm)

The La-11 is armed with:

  • 3 x 23 mm NS-23 cannons, nose-mounted (75 rpg = 225 total)

The 23 mms don't always get the job done, but when they do work, they work great. Air target belts are typically the best belt against other aircraft due to their explosive punch.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons


  • Powerful nose-mounted cannons
  • High rate of fire
  • Ability to fire half the guns (One 23 mm cannon is bound as light machine guns, the other two are cannons)
  • Good performance below 3 km
  • Decent roll rate


  • Doesn't perform well at altitudes above 4 km
  • Low ammo capacity
  • Powerful recoil
  • Poor frontal cockpit visibility


Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
