Best Fighter of World War II
What is the best piston engine fighter of WWII, separate answers acceptable for early war, mid war, late war, and also for different types of fighters, ex short range interceptors, long range escorts, fighter bombers, air superiority fighters, etc.

Let the discussion begin.
The only problem with the world is that the idiots are cocksure and intelligent are doubtful.

Here's my list:

Best early war naval fighter, Zero A6M2
Best early war land fighter, Spitfire IIb
Best mid war naval fighter, F6F Hellcat
Best mid war land fighter, BF109G / P51D Mustang / ki-84 Hayate
Best late war land fighter, FW190A8
Best attack fighter, Tempest / P47 / FW190

I think, the overall most versatile air frame that is competent in all roles assigned is the FW190

Now, the early jets.. P80 vs. ME 262 vs. Gloster Meteor..... I am edging towards the Meteor....

neat post diego,it took a couple about  3 years   for our  factories to improve fighter effectiveness in battle via  experiences of veterans who worked with designers  on necessary  changes,what the enemy had, and build new  planes accordingly.
  At a minute into the history  channel you tube vid with aviator robert duncan,
he says about the hellcat        ',,,, with that armored bathtub around you in the cockpit,the layout of the controls,all within easy reach,you felt it was like sitting in your
 mothers lap.
