I-15bis were supplied to Spanish Republic (there they became nicknamed "Super Chatos") and China. These fighters took part in air battles over Khalhin-Gol River, during Soviet-Finnish war (1939-1940).

In the early stage of war in the Soviet-German front I-15bis biplanes were obsolete but used as fighters and ground attack aircraft.
