The P-47 Thunderbolt, nicknamed the Jug, served the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in World War II with distinction. In total 15,636 were built between 1941 and 1945. France, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, Mexico and Brazil also operated the P-47. It was armed with an impressive eight .50-caliber machine guns with 425 rounds per gun. In addition the Jug was armed with bombs and rockets and it excelled in the ground attack role. The P-47 also served in the bomber escort role before the introduction of the P-51 Mustang which had longer range.
Powered by an R-2800-59 Double Wasp turbocharged radial engine, the aircraft enjoyed exceptional power and durability. The Jug substantial weight gave it tremendous dive speed acceleration but the aircraft suffered from quite low Mach limits and hence the aircraft was equipped with dive flaps to avoid dangerous effects of compressibility. The bubble canopy of the D version of the P-47 provided excellent all round visibility.
The DCS: P-47D is a long-awaited addition to DCS World War II, and it provides varied and exceptional game play over our World War II battlefields.
