Nice skins. I would love to use them, but in IL2 4.01m the P-47 is a deathtrap. The DM is way off, no way did the P-47 loose it's engine with a few bullet hits, nore did it's wings fall off. The 47 was known to get it's pilots back home, even with a rod or two poking thru the cylinder.

Quote from American air power museum web site
"By the end of the war, the Thunderbolt had established an overall ratio of air-to-air combat victories to losses of 4.6 to 1. Thunderbolts dropped 132,482 tons of bombs, fired 59,567 rockets, and expended 135 million belts of machine gun ammunition.

From D-Day to V-E Day in Europe, Thunderbolts destroyed 86,000 railway cars, 9000 locomotives, 6000 armored vehicles and tanks, and 68,000 trucks. By the end of the war, Thunderbolts had destroyed 2752 enemy aircraft in the air and 3315 on the ground."

Man, I hope they dont suspend me again. LMAO

Once again, Nice skins.

If its a strength issue the Buzzin Cuzzin with the small wname had 2 new wings, a prop and engine installed because, and I quote the info that My friend Ferdinando has produced for the skin read me

Thus Sulzbach on 1 April 1945 was flying one of
the brand new P-47 (s/n 44-21054) which the 346th FS had received on late March and adorned with a new, rushed, version of his nickname. The initial fate wasn't favourable to the new mount, as Sulzbach, while trying to attack several trucks hidden in a wood near Lake Garda, didn't pull up in time and crashed against a bunch of trees... the strength of the Jug saved his life, since his plane, notwithstanding a completely bent nose and
deep gashes along all wing leading edges, managed to saw it's way through the trees and bring the pilot back to Pisa.
