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.

Very good model and works really perfect. Will like to have the GPS changeable with GTN750 from PMS50 . Some cool options like the side cargo door and the mechanical to digital switchable attitude Indicator.

This bird has great potential but has some glaring issues that need patching: 1. Oversized model when sitting next to comparable aircraft 2. Uses the default G36 sounds (this trend needs to stop) 3. Night lighting needs to be improved. Cockpit too dark, no taxi lights, and landing lights don't extend far enough when viewed from the cockpit 4. Knobs in the cockpit reversed like the parking brake This will be a great add-on if patched. We'll see how this new developer does going forward.
MILVIZ - KA350I P3D V4.5 V5
Martino
Hard to suggest this aircraft as a good buy when there's no manual that shows the exact V speeds and aircraft's behavior at different altitudes. There's no way of knowing if this model even follows the real KA350i's performance, although it seems it does not. At initial climb, the real KA350i is able to pitch up to 2,000 / 2,500 ft/m, this one struggles to maintain 170 knots above 1,000 ft/m! The ITT goes up to max immediately and appears to be extremely sensitive. For some reason, after each flight, the engines are in need of full maintenance (?!). The KA350i should be able to fly at 263 KIAS, this one goes up to 180 and then struggles to go past that speed. . . why?? Is this Milviz's interpretation of how the aircraft is designed to work and essentially just poor execution and a rush job? Milviz has abandoned all customer support in Prepa3D and so good luck asking questions and getting any attention or any patch to make this model a real study level. For the cost, this is not even close to a real King Air 350i.
LIONHEART CREATIONS - TRINIDAD TB-21 GT MSFS EDITION

A really good plane made by a designer dedicated to make the best product possible, the number of updates and improvements this planes has received is staggering. Lionheart Creations is willing to rebuild parts of his plane from scratch if it means addressing criticism and improving it.

What an amazing little plane if its looks dont charm you the flight model will. The smoke affect works and is on point, using flaps settings to change the colours is nice and easy. Just remember to count the clicks. Ther-
e are some nice little Easter eggs in the plane rewards you for looking around and clicking, not going to spoil the surprise. Th-
e textures are very nice have a good selection of liveries to choose from, works nicely in vr. the plane has had a good flow of updates and the dev seems very committed to keeping this plane upto date and bug fix. For the money well worth it have spent a lot of hours rolling around the sky in it.

Nice work but definitely not completed. All the southern part of the aerodrome has never been designed (even if promised), nor updates where issues in the last 9 months at all. Even their support is disappointing, I tried to ask about the promised developments via email, never received an answer.

Couldn't expect more about quality and price. Texture and reality are perfect. Worth a penny!!!

Very well-designed airport! Ground textures are nice and "dirty", gates dock well, there is interior terminal modeling in the international terminal (not in the domestic), and the landside areas are nicely done. No glitches or bugs noticed so far. I was at VVTS in 2015, and visiting there with this scenery does feel immersive and reminds well of being there. A worthwhile purchase and good value for the price!
