Proposed paper rework of the P-47 as a turbojet.

A turbojet-powered version of the classic Republic P-47 Thunderbolt fighter was briefly considered by the USAAF after the arrival of the Messerschmitt Me 262 over Europe.

That's pretty neat, never heard of it before but looks pretty cool. I haven't gotten into flying any jets yet but this would be cool. Another to add to the list :)

Never heard of this myself,  like it states wouldn't take much to use its oversized airframe to be adapted to be used as a jet.

Knowing as many aircraft types of the second world war as I do, I myself have never heard of this. An interesting concept, though im not sure it would be added to the game based on how concerned officials were about its characteristics when it was just on paper.

 

neat story though!
