Details

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt gained its impressive reputation in Europe during the Second World War. Dubbed the Juggernaut, was able to take as much punishment as it gave out and bring its pilot safely home. It was considered to be the "biggest, toughest and most dependable single engine Fighter of WW2". The "Jug" as it became affectionately named became one of the most outstanding fighters of its generation and a legend of its time. Loved or hated by pilots, the "Jug" proved its worth in both the European and Pacific War theaters.

The P47-D, of which 12,602 were built, carried the most number of improvements and modifications of Thunderbolts, resulting in the largest number of variants within a single classification.
