P-26 Peashooter is the fighter, but the bomber, beats me? Confused

Here is some information on the two planes in the picture above. The P26 info goes with the photo attached. The B9 info goes with the first photo.
Boeing P-26 Peashooters began to appear at Muroc shortly after they were introduced into the Army Air Corps in 1933. Ungainly and quaint to modern eyes, the P-26 actually represented very advanced technology for its day. It was the Army's first all-metal monoplane fighter, and its 600 hp engine gave it a top speed of 234 mph. The very high headrest concealed a strong arch which protected pilots in the case the airplane should flip over upon landing. Pilots still preferred open cockpits, and the streamlined, fixed wheels were lighter than the mechanism necessary for retracting landing gear.
B-9 BOMBER
The B-9 bomber was the earliest plane based on the Monomail design. It had a top speed of 186 mph and could outrun the fighters of the day by 5 mph. The monoplane bomber reached this speed although it had a five-person crew (in open cockpits) and carried a 2,400-pound bomb load.

This high-speed aircraft inspired other airplane manufacturers to launch a new generation of bombers, such as the Martin B-10. Because fighters were expected to be faster than bombers, the B-9 also led to the first monoplane fighters.
