The Thunderbolt was the most famous of all the Republic aircraft in WWII. First flown on 6 May 1941, the P-47 was designed as a large, high-performance fighter/bomber, utilizing the large Pratt and Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp engine to give it excellent performance and a large load-carrying capability. The first deliveries of the P-47 took place in June 1942, when the US Army Air Corps began flying it in the European Theater.
Later in the war, Jugs served as escort fighters for B-29 bombers in the Pacific. Mostly, though, they excelled in the ground-attack role, strafing and bombing their way across the battlefields of Europe. Early versions of the P-47 had 'razorback' fuselages, but later models (beginning near the middle of the P-47 production run) featured a bubble canopy which gave the pilot increased rearward visibility.
The 1 Grupo de Aviaçäo de Caça - 1 GAVCA (1st Brazilian Fighter Squadron) was established on 18 December 1943, as the Brazilian Air Force fighter unit that would be deployed alongside U.S.A.A.F. units in the European Theater of Operations during World War II.
