      Another one I'm going to sit on for a while, as I think these two balance out pretty close.

          The Fox probably has it in terms of influence on fighter design. When it entered service as a day bomber it was faster than any extant day fighter and this caused much redesign world wide.

              If you're short of time to do research, you could just toss a coin?

                "Fox" for sure, purely on influence.

                It reminds me of the Hawker "Fury".

                  The Fury was one of a generation of fighters inspired by the Fox's performance. The Fox had proved able to evade any RAF fighter in service 1927 - 28. The Fox was sold to the Belgian Air-force and some saw action in 1940. In parallel the Fairey Fantome single seat fighter was developed. This had a top speed of 270 mph and was armed with a 20mm cannon and two.30s. Only four were built but two ended up with the Republicans in Spain and may have been the fastest biplane to see action.
