seems to be a little more forgiving in the turns but its roll rate is still too slow.

A little more forgiving...yes. Roll-rate is an issue that will be fixed. Armament is a little stronger now. It's still a little slow at cruise. Still, it's fun to fly.

I have noticed its a little slower when cruising as well. Yesterday I was flying around by myself for a little while on that Vulchers server. I was at 5500m and 570 was all she could get. Before I could easily maintain 650+ at that level. It does roll very poorly. I started to roll over to strafe some planes at about 1500 meters and I didnt think I was going to come out of it before I hit the ground, but I barely made it. I have however found that it H turns very well now, and those 50's are uber, so I'm diggin it.

I like it alot more with the patch. Its faster, has a better roll rate, and is more forgiving like it should be. My squad flies Jugs online and my piece of advice is to never engage at same speed/alt with another AC or yull get pummeled. Try to B&Z and keep yur alt and speed up at all times. The Jug gets better and better the higher you are...so keep that in mind.

Even before the patch it had the best armament in the game IMO (if you don't count a 109 with wing pods of course)

Bavaria is one of the oldest European states.
It dates back to about 500 A.D., when the Roman Empire was overcome by the onslaught of Germanic tribes. According to a widespread theory, the Bavarian tribe had descended from the Romans who remained in the country, the original Celtic population and the Germanic invaders.

I did not forget them. I can't shoot anything in the A8/A9.

Besides in armament I count hitting power + ease of shooting. Not only hitting power.

Everybody seems to love dumping on P47 as slow heavy less nimble fighter ever since Air Warrior, but it is DOCUMENTED as having a astounding roll rate besides that, and being an excellent high altitude Boom and Zoom fighter( which was how practically all American planes were flown in WWII anyway). I still try to fly it, but until they fix the roll rate, it will never seem to live up to the fact that 2 of the leading US European theatre aces got all their kills in them.

p47 does NOT own. sheesh. i think oleg didnt even touch the guns as a matter of fact. it turns better and holds energy better though but its still almost a sitting duck since it cant roll at all.

By the way I forgot to talk about the ammo load, which is very high compared to "rival" A8/A9.

The Jug is great, it's "E" retention is better by ten fold, however we did lose a little top-end power, and of course the roll-rate is still off. But Oleg has stated that it will be fixed, so I don't worry, and it hasn't stopped me or my squad from flying them and very effectively.

Just try the P47D27 against ace AI.

When I avoid the head one (where I can't aim and most likely get hit), I destroyed a Fw190D9 '44 4 times out of 5. The only time I didn't shoot him down I had a centerline fuel tank that I forgot to drop, and I damaged it heavily before running out of ammo (I aimed very poorly).

Nic,
I noticed this also I can outrun and outclimb the D9 over 5000m and B&Z him at will. Thats why I was wondering if it was as effective online?

I never flew online with or against the P47 after the patch, so I don't know. Before the patch I thought it was an easy kill, but I also thought it was a very efficient plane. I think it really comes down to flying it properly and staying very fast.

As with most aircraft, it's effective when flown correctly.
