    hmmmm

    Logic would say the I-16.

    But i have been wrong. I seem to be doing asomething right this round. Every vote so far has been with the pack.

    maybe some of the info is rubbing off.

        The Fox was pretty good for its day and successfully filled some useful roles.
        However, given that it doesn't seem to have done anything ultra-special the very small number produced makes a joke of its significance/influence IMO, when compared to the I-16, which also successfully filled some useful roles but in vastly greater numbers.

        Polikarpov gets my vote this time.
