P-47D 20-RE Razorback as an option

Recommended Posts

As the P 47D 20 RE Razorback is the same aircraft as our current DCS P 47, I'd recommend ED doing this as and additional option like the Clipped Wing Spitfire. 

The only changes as far as I can tell is the missing Dorsal Fin and the Bubble canopy. 

These aircraft were built in big numbers, flew during WW2 in Europe and are even more iconic than the later P 47D versions we have in DCS. 

As the changes between the two are minimal it shouldn't be to much effort giving us a Razorback P 47D.

It would be a great addition to the existing plane set we have right now. 

 

Thank you

  • River changed the title to P-47D 20-RE Razorback as an option

+1 to this, a razorback addition to the 47 module would be absolutely fantastic.  Combined with the D30/40 already there, it would really broaden the applicability of the DCS P-47 over a larger period of the war

Would be cool, but I wouldnt necessarily say its a simple task to make it from the one we have. Its fairly well known that there are differences in stability characteristics between bubble top and razorback aircraft, on both the Jug and the Mustang. Considering that alot of the work for the 47 in DCS had to be done on CFD etc due to the scarcity of original data, its may not be as easy as one would assume to create a razorback on the basis of what we currently have in DCS.

did you mention the Razor Back did not have the the cut down rear fuselage ??  this was why it was called the JUG as it looked like a milk bottle. check your grammar or facts.

I'd prefer a D-22 or D-23 just because they'd still be competitive with the later war stuff that we have (they have the paddle props, D-22 has Hamilton Standard and D-23 has Curtis Electric. D-22/23 could be used in scenarios from late 43/early 44 up to the end war scenarios. Best version of the razorback imo.

Once they add earlier German aircraft like the G-6, etc. I'd be fine with the D-20.
