For those so interested, go here -

http://rwebs.net/avhistory/history/p-47.htm

for an interesting overview of P47 construction details, by Nicholas Mastrangelo, Chief Technical Publications, Republic Aviation Corporation, reprinted from the January 1945 issue of Industrial Aviation.

. Also check out the interesting reproduction of a GE pamphlet on their turbosupercharger design. This pamphlet was published by General Electric, the builders of most U.S. turbosuperchargers before and during World War II. This document was later published as Technical Manual TM 1-404, dated 30 December, 1943.

Offered only in the interest of pursuing the good, the true, and the beautiful.....

Oh for goodness sake! Just because someone says,
that, maybe the P47 wasn't perfect that they are
American haters. The level of paranoia here over
FMs, and people seeing anti-German, Russian, American,
Icelandic, Fijian, or whatever sentiment in the most
innocent of posts is getting very silly! People
need to really calm down here!

No anti-American sentiment here, certainly.

Good site, Blutarski.

Has anyone spotted any similar sites for the P40?
It would be interesting to try and compare the wing
structures to try and get to the bottom of wether
the dispersion of rounds from the P47 has any basis
in relative wing flexibilities. Not that I could take
a cutaway diagram and actually indicate what the
stiffness would be, but my father-in-law is a structural
engineer (civil engineering rather than aeronautical,
but I could show him the information when he's visiting
next month and see what he thinks).

I like P-47, and I think that it was a capable ground attack platform, also a good high altitude escort fighter. But it was restricted to hit&run tactics at low and medium altitudes.
