Yo-yo already told us some of the Yak-52 modelling a time ago included comparing charts in a well known and fully documented aeroplane as Yak is to RL measures with sensors in the plane (an aerobatic an easily found one as Yak-52 is), and that either compared to a wind tunnel simulation program so they could see how accurate that is and how that compares altogether to their needs for a similarly accurate simulation as the modules we already have.

The answer was positive, at least as they said back then, so they could use sensor measures in a real P-47 as well as wind tunnel simulation data with good results. I guess meaning a hell of a lot of work anyway to polish and fine tune that to a similar level we are used now, but doable. So lets hope for the best outcome knowing P-47 is on the works and incoming .

S!
Im not afraid about FM this one can be tweaked as needed. I am afraid about engine reliability, for example after hitting 65' engine blow up after 2 minutes, that is what i am afraid of.
When ED decide that p-47 was blowing up instantly at 65' running Russian fuel we cant do much then.
In case german planes Russians test were performed while using captured german fuel. Nothing like this was available for allied planes tested in Russian.

What Russian tests?? P-47 never was told to have any Russian tests mate. And what Russian fuel?? I never blew any engine up in 2 minutes unless misusing it and being my fault. Funny, even with the supposed bug in P-51 engine I could run up to 30+ minutes at 67" just keeping my speed up. So better learn to fly the thing properly instead of asking always for the ultimate exploit in a hardcore simulator. And don't start complaining before something is even announced for release , because you know, that kind of positive feedback always helps .

hah when was it when you flown 67" for 30 minutes. Stop talking about keeping speed up, this is not a problem.
i just dont believe that you flown 67' for 30 minutes it crazy amount of time in sim.
yes every one complaining about this and only you can fly 67' for forever hmm.

P-47 was delivered to the USSR and was tested, disassembled, but was not widely used because of Eastern front specific conditions.

interesting video


What was the particular reason to use P-47s on carriers? Was there anything they could do that the Hellcat/Corsair could not?

It is how US transport them to bases, Uses escort carriers for this, One way launch then landing at airfield.(only for pacyfic theater i think) They did transport bigger planes like bombers etc but cranse were used for unloading those.
It is far from any operational mean as it can get.
most of the time planes were trnsported in parts in crates i presume.
Us used escort carriers as hauling boats later in war,

= crap fuel.
Not because Russians were not able to make better fuel, reason is different, Russians used large displacement engines above 35L v12 with low boost, they didn't need better fuel.
So this fuel absolutely dint work well with low displacement high boost engines like Merlin 66.
I can see already test rapports.
Plane can operate up to 30" everything above is just capitalists propaganda.

Russians got 100 octane fuel due to lend-lease program, so they could even add TEL to increase octane even higher for tests... THe problem was that even 2000 hp was not enough to get even 18-20 m/s vertical speed at medium altitudes. P-47 is a pure high altitude fighter keeping the power up to 8-9 km where planes with geared blowers became sluggish. Eastern front dogfights usually were lower than 3-4 km.
