The P-47 Thunderbolt, also known as the "Jug", was the largest, heaviest, and most expensive fighter aircraft in history to be powered by a single reciprocating engine. It was one of the main United States Army Air Forces fighters of World War II, and served with other Allied air forces. The P-47 was very effective in air combat but proved especially adept at ground attack.
