    Best AT THE TIME was the I-16. Tricky little beast, but the world's first "modern" fighter. La-7 was best of the war, though.

    Yak-9UT and Yak-9P were pretty hot too.

    By the time of WWII, the Rat was already obsolete. Even in Spain it didn't do that well. It was a very innovative plane for its day, but it was outclassed by even the first Bf-109's.

    Given the choices, I also say the La-7 was best.

    to be honest that's a rather pathetic list, there's many more planes that could have been put on, as CC pointed out................

    If I could figure out how to add more choices to the poll (is there a way?), I would.

    Nope. It was very innovative in 1934. But by 1936 when it went to battle in the Spanish civil war, it was about an equal match for the Italian C.R.32 byplane, and it was serously outclassed by the Bf-109. It never dominated the skies anywhere.

    It was the first fighter with a retractable undercarriage, and just because it wasnt match for the 109's it doesnt mean it wasnt the worlds first modern fighter. The only reason It had little battle success is because there were no wars for it to fight in at the time, had it been actually fighting in 1934 it would have been far superior.

    lanc statement IS correct, he never said it was the best.
