General Overview

Affectionately known as “The Jug,” the P47 Thunderbolt is as big as the American Spirit. Ironically the original concept was born in Russia, and can be seen by its rugged and hearty design. Like a gentle giant, the P47 handles with grace but packs an enormous punch.

When British pilots first saw the P47, it was often mocked due to its size. The light, maneuverable Spitfire’s could get on a P47’s tail with ease in test trials. What they didn’t know at that time was the P47 was different type of fighter, and the battles were to be fought at higher altitude where the air is thin, using high-energy tactics. Both the British and the Germans soon found out, in the right hands, the P47 was lethal.

Down low the P47 lumbers along but up high is where it lives and breathes with its high speed and terrific zoom climbs. A quick burst of the eight browning .50 caliber machine guns is powerful enough to shred a fighter, which was essential for a properly executed “boom and zoom” attack. . Being tasked to protect the B17 and B24 heavy bombers up high, and with their ruggedness and power, the P47 performed it’s job with great capability.

Built around a massive Pratt & Whitney R-2800 radial engine, The “Jug” was tough, powerful, and fast. The Wings of Power P47 captures this beauty of the sound, function, and feel of the real P47 like no other. Like the aircraft, the entire Wings of Power P47 Thunderbolt series is enormous and includes many variants from the Razorback’s to the experimental XP72 prototype.

History

The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt holds a unique honor in the ranks of World War II fighters. This plane was much heavier and bulkier than other fighter planes of its day, outweighing aircraft like the Fw 190 by several thousand pounds. Equipped with a large, powerful radial engine, it looked as tough as it was. Known as the "Jug", this aircraft was a mainstay of the Allied fighter fleet and, with its eight .50 caliber guns, was capable of shredding ground targets and airborne opponents alike. While it could not turn with Axis fighters such as the Fw 190 and Me 109, it could outdive both of these and had a zoom-climb capability that was amazing. This zoom-climb was used to good advantage; it was said that if a P-47 pilot met an enemy Focke-Wulf at 25,000 feet and wanted to out-climb him to 30,000 feet, the P-47 could dive to 20,000, zoom 30,000, and be waiting for the enemy.

The first "Jugs" were fitted with 2,000 HP engines and framed canopies. Later models such as the D-25 were fitted with bubble canopies and engines of increasing horsepower. The final production version, the P-47N, had an engine which would produce 2,800 HP with water injection. The plane's increased weight offset the power to some degree, but the plane was still very fast, with a top speed of nearly 470 mph. The additional power and strong airframe allowed a lot of ordnance and fuel to be carried, making the P-47N a very long-range fighter that could carry a lot of damage to the enemy.

In all, 15,683 Thunderbolts were manufactured, more than any fighter produced during war.

The P-47M was a special, light-weight "buzz bomb chaser" and had a very high top speed of over 470 miles per hour. It was assigned exclusively to the 56th Fighter Group.

The P-47N was a long-range version made for use in the Pacific Theatre. It had a much larger fuel capacity, a larger wing, and could carry large drop tanks of up to 300 gallons. It also had a faster rate of roll due to increased aileron area and "clipped" wings. It used the same 2,800 HP engine as the P-47M but had a slightly lower top speed because of its heavier weight.

The XP-72 “Ultrabolt” was to have been the ultimate P-47. Equipped with a massively powerful Pratt & Whitney R-4360 engine producing 3,400 HP for combat emergency, this plane could climb over 5,000 fpm and would have reached a top speed of over 500 mph. It was fitted with a low-drag NACA engine cowling and was fairly light in weight. The type never saw combat. Only two were built, one with a four-bladed conventional propeller and the other with twin, contra-rotating, three blade airscrews. The first was lost in a crash and the second was scrapped around the time of VJ-Day.

Important things to know about your Wings of Power P47

  • Shift-D releases drop tanks (can be clicked via mouse in VC)
  • Shift-W drops bomb (can be clicked via mouse in VC)
  • Keep the aircraft idling at 800RPM or higher to avoid fouling up the plugs
  • You will need to hold your brakes on to prevent the aircraft from moving at idle due to the torque
  • Do not apply full power with wheel brakes on or the aircraft my nose over, especially the XP72
  • The P47 is a heavy plane that requires a lot of runway to get airborne. Let the aircraft build plenty of speed before gently lifting off
  • Make sure the airplane is below the recommended flap and landing gear safe extension speed before deploying flaps or gear
  • Realism includes realistic turbo speed light operation and animated oxygen gauges
  • Your aircraft is equipped with realistic fuel loads as well as many other loads including the pilot, guns, ammo, oil tank, oxygen, pyrotechnics, bombs, etc.
  • Use the “i” key for natural engine smoke. The effect is very subtle but is toggled for your convenience as some like a clean burning engine and others like a little bit of engine smoke.
  • On landing, raise your flaps once you touch down to settle the aircraft, pull back on the stick for additional elevator braking while you use your wheel brakes.
  • Be careful with high-speed dives, as you can lose control of your aircraft if you exceed the maximum allowable speed.

AEROSOFT - LUKLA - MOUNT EVEREST EXTREME FSX
ALVARO
Highly recommended for those who still fly in FSX just waiting for MSF2020. The airport and scenery around, are excellent. It really does challenge your skills as pilot, it is probably one of the most difficult approaches and landings in the world.
FSOARES - SANTAREM AIRPORT - SBSN - FSX P3DV3 P3DV4
Markus
What a beautiful little scenery this is, very well done! It features detailed modelling and crisp texturing throughout, with highly realistic looking textures. And the beauty of it, this is the case in ALL areas of the airport, from the fire station to the maintenance hangars, no area is overlooked. Adding to that, the airport is integrated flawlessly into ORBX OpenLC SA. Perfectly animated and functional SODE windsocks complement the scenery, as well as realistic looking runway lights. I've sent two suggestions for improvement to the developer, who instantly replied and agreed, taking notes for the next update. This is excellent support.
JUSTFLIGHT - PA-28-161 WARRIOR FSX
Austen
Accurate simulation of a real Piper Warrior. The aircraft model is outstanding. Having flown the actual aircraft, all the functionality is there. Even the engine sounds like the real deal. Would definitely recommend this product for anyone training on this aircraft as you are able to go through the entire real world checklist and practice stalls/emergenc-
y procedures.
FLYFREESTD - SUKHOI SU-27/27UB FLANKER-B/C FSX
Austen
Finally a Flanker that is worth purchasing! -
I've been searching for a SU-27 for FSX for a while now and have finally found a quality one. Both external and interior models are very well done. The external model has that shiny look that comes with quality models. The interior seems to be a fairly accurate representation of the real world cockpit. All the instruments and switches are in the correct Russian. My only complaint is that not all the switches are interactive, but nevertheless all the important ones are. The avionics reflect the 1980s design of this aircraft, so don't expect to navigate using modern tech. Basic nav and autopilot functions are all there along with a simple waypoint pointer. Flying the SU-27 is a welcome change compared to the typical western fighter. Can confirm you are able to perform the cobra maneuver, but make sure to turn off the AoA limiter. Ove-
rall, I would highly recommend checking this product out if you are looking for a SU-27.

Jens
I have been to Esenboga many times, and it looks very realistic. I am very impressed, and the performance is great too. That the Ataturk museum, which is located in the city south of the airport and visible when approaching to the north, is a great detail. Fantastic value. Thanks a lot.

ALPHA DESIGNS - ATC CHATTER SOUND PACK FSX P3D X-PLANE 10/11
Phil
Well, it’s a start! As someone who wants an easy to use product this fits the bill, it works seamlessly in the background. In Europe,though, there didn’t seem to be much by way of English or German speaking ATC, have I missed something? It’s inexpensive and gives some extra immersion so I’m not going to criticise. Hopefully it can be expanded with additional sounds because the concept, not new I know, works well in P3d...
