Affectionately known as “The Jug,” the P-47 Thunderbolt is as big as the
American Spirit and holds a unique honor in the ranks of World War II fighters.
Ironically the original concept was born in Russia and can be seen by its rugged
and hearty design. Like a gentle giant, the P-47 handles with grace but packs an
enormous punch. This plane was much heavier and bulkier than other fighter
planes of its day, outweighing aircraft like the Fw 190 by several thousand
Equipped with a large, powerful radial engine, it looked as tough as it was.
However, when British pilots first saw the P-47, it was often mocked due to its
size. The light, maneuverable Spitfire’s could get on a P-47’s tail with ease in
test trials. What they didn’t know at that time was the P-47 was different type
of fighter and the battles were to be fought at higher altitude where the air is
thin, using high-energy tactics. Both the British and the Germans soon found
out, in the right hands, the P-47 was lethal.
