P-47D Thunderbolt Tarheel

The P-47 Thunderbolt was one of the largest single-engine fighters of the war, an airframe built around a powerful R-2800 radial engine of 2,500 horsepower. Armed with eight .50-caliber machine guns and able to carry up to 2,500 pounds of bombs or 10 5-inch rockets, the Thunderbolt was fast, tough and effective. The P-47 shot down more than 3,700 enemy aircraft, then struck fear into Wehrmach formations as the ground war in Europe began again in 1944. Its ability to deliver bombs or rockets, as well as being a potent strafing platform severely hindered the movement of German units.
