Nicknamed the "Seven-ton milk-bottle" or just shortened to "Jug", the P-47 was one of the heaviest fighters of the war. Designed around a turbosupercharger, they served as a high altitude hit-and-run hunters thanks to its terrifying diving speed. It's heavy bomb capacity and toughness also gave it great success in the ground-attack role.
