A bit of History:
The First Brazilian Fighter Group was created in 1943. The training was performed by the Forward Echelon in Florida, then as a Group in P-40s in Aguadulce, Panama, and Sulfolk, New York, flying P-47s. It had a Squadron size.
During the World War II , the Group was attached to the 350th Fighter Group in Italy as the 4th squadron (1944-1945). It was based initially in Tarquinia and later in Pisa. Due to low on replacements, the pilots extended the Tour of Duty until the war end.
"Jambock" was the callsign used by the Brazilian Fighter Group during the war and still is in used today (flying F-5EM and F-5FM). "Jambock" name has an Indonesian/South African origin (sjanbok or Sambok) and means "animal skin or wood whip". It was a kind of whip.

About this Livery:
The livery is as historical as possible.
Cap Kopp flew 58 combat missions during WWII in Italy. He flew most of the time as "Red Two", on his Olive Drab "C2". He was shot down on hi 58th mission, managed to bail out and and was rescued by partisans. He remained hidden until the war end.
After the war he occupied many important Air Force jobs until he retired as General. He married and had one doughter. He died in 1996.  

This airplane was a P-47D-27-RE SN 42-26776. There is a pair of pictures of this airplane as portrait in this livery. Torres used for a while the word "TROZOBA" on its nose, but it was removed later on. "TROZOBA" is a brazilian slang that means something like "Penis". The airplane did not have an insignia under his left wing nor on the top of the right one. At the point of the included picture, he had flow 30 missions. And, yes, the "A" letter was misaligneg.

He retired right after the war as a Captain. He was a manager in several companies as Texaco, VASP airlines and founded in Brazil "BRINKS", an huge securities carrier and security company. He married, had 5 sons and 9 grandsons. Alberto Martin Torres died on December 2001 and as per his request, his ashes were dropped by plane over Rio de Janeiro Guanabara bay.

The Patch on the nose means:
- Ostrich - Brazilians can take and handle anything;
- Hat - The Brazilian Air Force Pilot;
- Shield - The Thunderbolt toughness and the Pilot protection;
- Blue and the 5 Stars - Brazilian Sky and the "South Cross constellation";
- Pistol - the Jug fire-power;
- Cloud - the airspace, "the pilot's floor";
- Red Background - the blood of the brazilians WIA and KIA;
- "Senta a Púa!" - Group Motto and means "Go for it!" in a "free translation";
Later, after the war, it was added a Flak Cloud to represent the enemy AAA.
