P47ís Are the Chuck Norris of Airplanes!
« on: March 15, 2023, 11:52:30 AM »
Adding to the recent P47 love here. Lemme explain. True Story!  :airplane:

I had 24 minutes of fuel left at full power inside a fully loaded P47N. There was a VH that just had to go down! Long story short Iím level at 9K and I pressed the WEP buttonÖ boom I now had 26 minutes of gas left.  :banana:

P47ís FTW!  :airplane: :aok

It actually surprises me how many people fly the M over the N. I like the N better TBH. Been crushing it this tour. You can be really patient in it with the amount of gas you get at 75%. Once you get some alt it's unstoppable. One of the really great things I love about it is being able to get your flaps out while going 350. Makes for some awesome overshoots. You can certainly throw followers off guard who aren't expecting you to turn fight in it. The 8 50s are super beneficial in AH especially for the overshoot.

The P47 is one of the purtiest planes of WW2. Really enjoy seeing it at airshows and museums. One of my favorites.

The turn fighting ability of the 47 is not often talked about but it can do some nifty tricks! I was trying to fly Mís for fighting but I use the N for hangers and porking. Going to do more fighter action in the N and see. Not that Iím good enough to know the difference anyway lol.

Love that the gas lasts forever or seems.

Fatties are easier to catch, they dont run fast. Plus you can bait one with a chocolate bar

By a long shot, the most dangerous bomber interceptor in this game is the P-47d11 especially when attacking from high 6 o' clock. Now understand tweeking convergence to a longer range makes a huge difference. In capable hands I experience nothing short of getting liquidated when facing these sky demons.

Now come on, I'm finetime! I will come out on top 75% of the time in any engagement, even when faced against stacked odds. That percentage drops dramatically when i come against that bird. The D11 in my opinion is the cream of the crop in AH3 for bomber intercepting below 20k and its not even close to ANY other aircraft including the 163. You can pop a comet but the thunderbolt will take gobs of lead and keep on keeping on.  :aok

The question is if they run faster with Ethanol in them than without  :D
