This plane have an engine M-82F, so shouldn't it be call La-5F early?

 

Different sources states different about versions of this plane:

1) Planes with M-82F were La-5F, no matter what canopy/fuselage they got (so in production since December 1942).

2) Planes with M-82F and cut down fuselage with a new canopy were La-5F (So in production since March 1942).

 

I'm no sure which is right.

Something is wrong here... despite having more engine power, being lighter and having a lower stall speed, the La-5F has a lower Rate of Climb on both 100% and WEP than the earlier La-5?! Is this data sheet not up to date? Is the La-5s datasheet out of date? If both are correct, then something is seriously wrong.
