Republic P–47D Thunderbolt - Raymond (WGS111C)
The Republic P–47 was by far the largest and heaviest single engine fighter built in the entire World War Two. Nicknamed “the Unbreakable” and “the Jug,” it was a rugged and dependable airplane, capable of flying its pilot back from combat even when full of holes from enemy fire. Heavily armed with eight .50-caliber machine guns, and carrying an impressive bomb load, it was very effective as both a bomber escort and a ground attack aircraft. Refined during his development, the P–47D was the most produced version, with 12,602 built.
Lt. Elwood D. Raymond was a member of the 56th Fighter Group, stationed in England, which destroyed more enemy aircraft than any other did.
Designed to be used with the popular air combat game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia, each WW2 Wings of Glory® Airplane Pack is a ready-to-play model, painted and assembled, 100% compatible with any other WW2 Wings of Glory game product.
In each pack you will find all you need to play with the airplane: a special base with gaming stats, a variable altitude flying stand, and a specific deck of maneuver cards. Larger maneuver cards (63 x 88 mm) are included with this model, to handle the fast movement of this airplane.
