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.

Customer Reviews
LOTUS SIMULATIONS - L-39 ALBATROS
Roger Halunen
It works for me in P3D V4.5. I purchased it when it first came out and it's been one of my favorite AC. It was a quality AC back then and is every bit as good today. It's a timeless piece of art that everyone should have in their hanger. The only difference in P3D 4.5 is that the wing tip lights are not in their exact position while night flying. A small price to pay considering everything else works as advertised. If Real Air Simulations had done a jet this would be it! Highly recommended!!

All hail Zev! Master creator and FS Innovator. Another one thoroughly hit for 6. Just bought it and did a few circuits to see what's what and I got my mind blown by the level of detail AGAIN! FPS PERFORMANCE SUPERB! Great job!!
SIMDESIGNSCO - SKPS ANTONIO NARIÑO AIRPORT FSX P3D
juan herrerra
Very good scenery the immersion when you are approaching to RWY20 was completely blow mind.
PKSIM - BOGOTA SKBO P3D
juan herrerra
Some of PKSIM's products can be a little blocky and outdated for today's quality against companies such as Orbx, Flightbeam, FlyTampa. And there's a small amount of this on the peripheries such as vehicles on the surrounding highways and some outer objects, And it's a little clean looking compared to a real airport that other designers will spend time on to give users a more immersive atmosphere. -
But ... the size of this airport, the amount of overall detail, this is just mind-blowing and a credit to the designers. And the shortcomings are soon lost in this massive and highly detailed airport, the FPS was average throughout the experience.

This scenery is EXCELLENT. LatinVFR have also done a phenominal job with the surrounding areas. I can recommend this scenery to one and all. GOOD JOB !!!!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - UUEE MOSCOW SHEREMETYEVO X V2 - FSX P3D
tedias lim
Oh this is so good! Much better than V1. Probably one of the best sceneries I currently have installed. Love the ground details and the large amount of static a/c. Also, Sode VGDS works correctly at gates. Fantastic! Very satisfied with the purchase.

Great Product, few issues BUT Zev was on line to help within 15 mins and sorted, great support and fantastic real life airport, only left the real BDS a few days ago, so remember it well, and this is so true to the real thing, Keep going Zev.
ANTS AIRPLANES - TIGER MOTH PRO FSX P3D
William Sheridan
This is a great simulation of this classic biplane - the VC and external modelling are excellent as are the flight dynamics and the sounds which are a very true replication of the Gypsy Major engine. It also comes with a very useful and innovative interactive pilots handbook. Highly recommended and great value!

Roland Knöpfel
Very nice and detailed airport/surroun-
ding area which was missing for P3D4 since a long time. The scenery is FPS freindly (even with HD resolution) and it is possible to adjust a few parameters with the easy to understand config tool. Well done.
