The Soviets may have used a captured Me 262 as the basis for both the Su-9 and Su-11, because the Su-11's fuselage was narrower than that of the Me 262. I remember that the Nakajima Kikka was also superficially similar to the Me 262 but differed in having a squared-off vertical stabilizer and was lighter.

The Su-11, like the Su-9, had straight wings like the MiG-9 and Yak-15. Despite using native Soviet jet engines rather than captured German jet engines, the Su-11 was a technological dead end because, like the Su-9, it was a slowpoke compared to the MiG-15.

Why no swept back wings? They had the plans for the 262 instead of using them it looks as though they crossed it with a shtoaravik

Do you think Uncle Joe was a little short upstairs because what comrade Yakovlev said about the Su-11 was just the same as he reportedly said about the Alexseev I 215.

Looks like when the soviets was taked the design plans of Me-262 was intented built a new aircraft based in that
