Uhh, yes. Very constructive. I'm sure Oleg will listen to: "Oleg, you lazy as*hat. Give me the thing I want right now!".

Oh, and the FW-190 was able to take just as much damage as the P-47. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Um...Were those planes called Jugs `cos they looked like the upper part of the female anantomy? This is a serios question. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif btw.

This is what I heard, anyway.



This`ll probably get locked now,,,

Some say its shot for "Juggernaut," a credit to the aircraft's legendary survivability ( not to mention its size), but others disagree and cite other origins. Juggernaut seems to be the most popular origin for the nickname, however.

I believe the term Jug came about because the P-47's shape somewhat resembled the ubiquitous milk jug available at that time. Something like this:

old fashion milk jug (http://www.rootsweb.com/~pacamero/graphics/farmers.jpg)

(and, no... that's *not* milk in it now... I hope!)

I heard it was called the Jug 'cause from the front the Engine resembled a toilet seat. Thats what some pilots were quoted in from a book I have on American fighters.

I thought it to be called a "Jug" because when the Brits first saw a 47,they thought it to be slow and unmaneuverable.I considered it a British term. Maybe after a beer keg or somesuch?

Jug is short for Juggernuat, the Germans gave it this name, because it took alot of hits to go down.

the version i had head was that the brits assumed the americans called them jugs from juggernaut (thinking this was the typical american way of thinking ) wheras the americans in fact called them jugs cos they looked kinda like a milk jug (fat etc).

1. I agree with Fluke on the nick name.

2. I took give us more Jugs from the poster which i thought would be fun to share. As opposed to all the whining threads I like to post aircraft related stuff. I love all these old planes & take turns promoting one or the other in the hopes of getting people to fly them all. So i guess i am kinda opposed to the learn one type & only fly it school. But i am really opposed to the whinging little pr icks.

Fluke is correct on the nickname. And yes I would like a P-47M please. There is the 109K only 750 made late Oct 44 and its here/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif But what I really want is a Roll Rate!/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Most rumpurs i've heard suggest some improvement in P-47 roll & i think lighter planes may lose some of their zoom.
Even if the3re aren't any changes it sure is fun to climb way up high & put a P-47 into a dive.....then drop some bombs or fire some rockets or just let loose with those 8 .50s....ah....

Still i see the 47 as more of an opportunity killer.
And besides its just such a Friendly aircraft somehow.
