What are Rakuten Super Points™?
|The P-47 Thunderbolt is the largest single-engine fighter of the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) fighters of World War II and was manufactured by Republic Aviation. The P-47 Thunderbolt was the product of Russian immigrant Alexander de Seversky and Georgian immigrant Alexander Kartveli, who had left their homelands to escape the Bolsheviks. The P-47s maiden flight was on May 6, 1941 and was introduced in 1942. Initial deliveries of the P-47s to the USAAF were to the 56th Fighter Group on Long Island. In 1942, P-47s prepared for combat operations in England. The first P-47 combat mission started in March 10, 1943 and the mission failed due to radio malfunctions. The P-47 gradually became the best fighter-bomber which could carry 500 pound bombs, the triple-tube M-8 4.5 inch rocket launchers and eventually HVARS. P-47s were operated by several Allied air arms during World War II. There are a large number of surviving airframes that exist in flying condition, as well as in museum collections worldwide. A total of 15,686 P47s were built. Dimensions: 15"L x 16"W x 7"H|
