Description

The P-47 Thunderbolt was the largest, heaviest, and most expensive fighter aircraft in history to be powered by a single piston engine.

Heavily armed with eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing when fully loaded, the P-47 weighed up to eight tons, and in the fighter-bomber ground attack roles could carry five inch rockets or a significant bomb load of 2,500 pounds; over half the weight the B-17 bomber could carry on long-range missions (although the B-17 had a far greater range).

The P-47 was one of the main United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) fighters of World War II, and served with other Allied air forces, notably those of France, Britain, and Russia.

Mexican and Brazilian squadrons fighting alongside the U.S. were equipped with the P-47This book contains invaluable information for the enthusiast and modeller, including many black and white photos never seen before, and highly detailed colour profiles.
