So is that accurate?

I would have thought the opposite. However, I suppose like everything else American it became heavier with each "improvement".

Anyone?

That would make sense. The later model has more armament choices, and can carry more. Perhaps strengthening of the areas near the bomb hardpoints was necessary, or more armor protection was added.

The weight spiral was true for the aircraft of most nations, and continues to this day with jets getting loaded down with every bombing related doodad.

Read the interview in this thread:

The best P-47's with the exception of the rare P-47M, were the early Razorbacks, after they had been upgraded with Water Injection and Paddle Blade propellors. They had the lowest weight, (13,500 lbs) and the best climb. They also didn't have the underwing bomb/drop tank pylons to slow them down.

These are the types of P-47's in which Bob Johnson, Gabby Gabreski, Bud Mahurin and Hub Zemke scored most of their victories.

I had hoped that Oleg would give us an upgraded P-47D10 with a paddle blade, but he hasn't provided one yet. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

thoughts about structural improvements, and added weight of buble-canopy makes some difference. AS well, dont forget aerodynamics. Razorback is much cleaner aerodinamicaly, as bublecanopy adds some drag. Remeber that razorback stang had some 5-10kph more than bublecanopy versa. So it makes some diference.

The bubble also adds to inherit instability. Which is why later models had additional aerodynamic improvements to counter this.
