The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, nicknamed ‘The Jug’, was renowned by Allied Pilots as one of the best Fighter-Bombers of World War 2. The predecessor to the legendary A-10 Thunderbolt, the P-47N can dish out as much punishment as it could take, comfortable engaging both ground targets as well as engaging in air-to-air dogfighting at 30,000+ ft.
Notorious for its large, heavy airframe, the P-47N is driven by the awesome power of the Pratt & Whitney 18 Cylinder R-2800-77 Double Wasp Radial Engine, capable of putting out 2800+ Horsepower and reaching altitudes of up to 43,000ft thanks to the ingenious supercharger design.
The P-47N Model is the ultimate iteration of the Thunderbolt, featuring: Wings Lengthened by 18ft and clipped to improve roll rate, Increased Combat Payload, Significantly increased flight range and a General Electric Autopilot System.
