FMS 1700mm (67") P-47 Thunderbolt Silver Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMS042SILVER

Northrop Grumman A-10
The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was one of the largest and heaviest fighter aircraft in history to be powered by a single piston engine. It was heavily armed with eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing. When fully loaded, the P-47 weighed up to eight tons, and in the fighter-bomber ground-attack roles could carry five-inch rockets or a significant bomb load of 2,500 pounds; it could carry over half the payload of the B-17 bomber on long-range missions (although the B-17 had a far greater range). The P-47, based on the powerful Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp engine—the same engine used by two very successful U.S. Navy fighters, the Grumman F6F Hellcat and Vought F4U Corsair—was to be very effective as a short-to-medium range escort fighter in high-altitude air-to-air combat and, when unleashed as a fighter-bomber, proved especially adept at ground attack in both the World War II European and Pacific Theaters.

The P-47 was one of the main United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) fighters of World War II, and served with other Allied air forces, notably those of France, Britain, and Russia. Mexican and Brazilian squadrons fighting alongside the U.S. were equipped with the P-47.

The armored cockpit was roomy inside, comfortable for the pilot, and offered good visibility. A modern-day U.S. ground-attack aircraft, the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, takes its name from the P-47.

  • April 13, 2014  -  The 1700mm FMS P-47D Thunderbolt is a wonderful giant-sized warbird.  Although this warbird demonstrates some trainer-like flight qualities, we recommend advanced pilots with plenty of warbird flight training due to its size and power.  This 1700mm P-47 has revised landing gear struts as of 4/2014 resulting in far greater strength.  Please watch our flight demonstration video.  This video was a single take on a very windy day and really highlights how well this plane flies.  The flight characteristics are as amazing as the large scale.  While this plane is extremely large, transportation is not an issue - simply remove 2 screws and a single cable to disconnect a wing.  It does not get any more simple.  This 1700mm plane is an absolute pleasure to fly.  While a lot of people say this, we truly mean it.
