Well, bearing in mind R2800 is the same in P-47, lets hope sound is not a problem.

maybe engines are the same but P-47 uses exhaust manifold which supply turbine with exhaust gases so sound will be quite difrent.

I would not pre judge but, lets agree that the Corsair had a very distinctive sound, the Japanese called it the Whistling Death...

There are no references in any contemporary Japanese sources that refer to this term, or anything similar. The "whistling death" myth only appears in Allied literature.

Ref: Sakaida, Henry. Imperial Japanese Navy Aces, 1937-45. Botley, Oxfordshire, UK: Osprey Publishing, 1998. ISBN 1-85532-727-9.


That said, if you have any historical Japanese references to the contrary, please let us know.

Some nice blog post regarding how various WW2 planes, including the Corsair, got such nicknames:
