3, I ranked top speed as the most important characteristic of a fighter (at that time). Is this assumption correct?

Thanks for your inputs.
Good work Dénes. As well as speed, initial climb rate would be important, I think (if the figures are given). I'm guessing that all these machines had similar fire power (two machine guns?).
