Maybe it's nitpicking, but in my book the P-40 is a better energy fighter than most contemporaries, with the slight disadvantage that you need to bring your energy with you, but you can keep your E pretty well. Its max dive speed is high enough to dive onto your prey without losing parts. And its got roll rate, lots of it, top for offense and still useful for defense. Vs anything up to midwar Japanese it is always a contender, vs. Western axis its limited top speed makes it a little difficult by midwar
