One of the largest fighters in history, the P-47 Thunderbolt was a mass-produced American aircraft first introduced in 1942. With more than 15,000 units manufactured, it was readily available to numerous Allied nations and was ultimately flown by the U.S., U.K., France, and Russia, in addition to various militaries after World War II. Though the P-51 Mustang had largely replaced it by 1945, it still finished the conflict with more than 3,700 air-to-air kills on more than 740,000 sorties.
