manufactured during World War 2 than any other American fighter, and the seven-ton aircraft became
extremely popular with A.A.F. pilots because of its ability to absorb extensive battle damage and
remain flying. Perhaps the most outstanding tribute to this aircraft is the fact that all 10 of the leading
Thunderbolt aces survived the war. The P-47 could easily out dive the enemy fighters and could
“dish-out― terrible punishment form its eight 50 cal. Browning machine guns.
