P47 is heavier than all other single engine fighter.

 

It wouldn't hold that title if this... thing, ever went into full production:

Can't wait for the jug, 1. because I like the jug, 2. because I like the mossie even more and that's next :D

Ok I will be more precise :

It's the heavier single engine fighter being mass produced during the war

More importantly for Bozon it means that the Mosquito will be next in line.

OH YEH! :thumbup:

One step closer to the wooden wonder :pilotfly:

Is the Thunderbolt as heavy as the fw190 Anton!!?? You aren't into WW2 airplanes , I'm guessing.

 

P-47 was heavier. Max weight on P-47 was around 17,000 lbs iirc, maybe even heavier for the P-47N with it's higher fuel load idk though.

 

EDIT: I think I misread what you meant, you were responding to an earlier post correct?

Anton 4.3 tons (Guns+Fuel) 402 hp/t (1730 hp)

P-47 5,7 tons (Guns+Fuel) 456 hp/t (2600 hp) **still not confirmed**

 

 

Everyone talks about 7 tons... but that's maximum LOAD!!!!!

 

As you see difference isn't that great.

Max load is around 8.5 tons (17,000lbs) not 7 tons (14,000lbs). It could be overloaded but I don't have the figures currently.

 

Combat Load for the P-47 was 13,200 lbs (6.6 tons)

Empty weight of the P-47D-30 was 10180 lbs (5.09 tons)
