Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Great bomber destroyer against a lone bomber
  • Excellent high altitude performance
  • If taken care of, can easily fly with one wing
  • Muscle car with wings, excellent at Boom and Zoom tactics
  • 8 M2 Browning machine guns are accurate at a longer range than most cannons at its BR
  • High speed, even while stock
  • Very durable which semi-compensates with its lacklustre turn rate
  • Plenty of ammo
  • Can easily escape enemies with its high speed for its rank
  • Great multirole aircraft, can carry various bombs and rockets, acting as an interceptor or ground-attack aircraft

Cons:

  • Frontal armour can easily be penetrated by 20 mm rounds
  • Can easily snap a wing when even the slightest gunfire hits it
  • Poor stall characteristics
  • Mediocre climb performance (side climbing recommended)
  • Slow and hard to manoeuvre at low altitudes
  • Larger than average fighter
  • Poor overall performance when mounting payloads
  • After attacking ground targets, the P-47 lacks the altitude to Boom & Zoom enemy fighters
  • Big engine easily hit during a head-on attack
  • Worse cockpit visibility than in the other bubble canopy P-47s
  • No armour protection for pilot from behind

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
