Buy FSX Steam Edition: Republic P-47D Thunderbolt Add-On


About This Content

The P-47D (or the 'Jug' as it was affectionately known) was one of the heaviest fighters of World War II. This weight required a very powerful engine so the aircraft was fitted with the same engine that powered the Hellcat and the Vought Corsair - the Pratt and Whitney R2800. An impressive load-out capability coupled with very capable .50 calibre machine guns ensured that the Thunderbolt was a very capable medium-range escort fighter and an accomplished ground attack aircraft. It did, however, have an issue with visibility to the rear and the canopy was modified to resemble that of the Hawker Typhoon with an all-encompassing ‘bubble top’ which allowing better all-round vision. The new canopy resulted in the new designation P-47D-25 which was nicknamed 'The Superbolt' by pilots in the field.

This highly detailed Aeroplane Heaven P-47D add-on is modelled after the initial P-47D-25 bubble top specification.
