The P-47M was a variant of the P-47 Thunderbolt. It saw service with the 56 Fighter Squadron in early 1945, and saw service against many if the Luftwaffe s late war planes including the famous Me-262 with victories against the plane

​Armament: 6-8 Browning M2 .50 inch HMG's


Armor:[spoiler]Armor plate - Bottom/Rear - 1/4" from the bottom of the seat up to the shoulders

Armor plate - Rear - 3/8" for head

Armor plate - Front 3/8"


Bulletproof Glass - 1-1/2" set at 39.5 degree angle[/spoiler]




Early P-47M's had teething problems but these were traced to incorrect shipping methods allowing salt water into the cylinders.

The P-47M would have plenty of competition for the Ta-152(with correct FM), DO-335, Sea fury, and other late war "super props", and the early jets.

I would give it a BR of 6.0-6.3 as it is a early 1945 plane.

Thank you for the suggestion!  :salute:


The P-47M has been suggested before, but this is a good a time as any to discuss this aircraft again. Open for discussion.  :yes:

I would LOVE this plane! I'm just starting to appreciate the P47 D for what it can do. So much fun. Only downside -I can see people crashing it into the ground on ground strikes like the current P47and it getting a silly BR :(

A P-47 with airbrakes looks really nice, I would love to have this ingame. +1


Where are the airbrakes on this thing anyway? Did it even have any?
