Novel model of the volume discharge formation in a preionized medium is proposed. The model provides an explanation for some experimental facts which can not be explained in the context of known models. There are, in particular, the presence of inhomogeneities in the form of microfilaments, improvement of the discharge homogeneity (and, as result, an increase of the laser radiation energy), increase of specific energy deposition into the medium with an increase in the number of preionization electrons, and the improvement of the discharge stability with increasing discharge volume.
