While I certainly know that the P-47 isn't carrier capable. I wonder if this would be out of the realm of possibilities later down the road.

Not sure that I would be into that at all but would be different...we all remember the appearance of 16 B-25s over Japan on April 18, 1942

That is simply a catapult start. IIRC the Enterprise, for example had 4 catapults; two on the forward deck and two inside the forward hanger, each pointing laterally outward; one to port, and one to starboard.

The reason catapults were not used during the war to launch large numbers of aircraft was because they were steam operated using their own boiler system, which took too long to build up again after a certain number of launches.

This is true, but the USS Hornet did not use catapults to launch the B-25's; they took off into the wind the same as with any other normal aircraft launch.

The US Navy did not begin using steam catapults until sometime after the Korean War. Up until then, all of our carrier cats were hydraulic.

That is correct, all cats on the US Naval Carriers used a hydraulic system, and the reason they weren't used that often is because of the time to launch 4 aircraft with the 2 deck cats, vs 4 aircraft on their own engine power with one notch of flaps and a 5kt headwind was a large difference, the Cats were really only ever used when there was a lack of wind or they were launching aircraft that were extremely heavy due to loadout.
