A P-47 Thunderbolt

The P-47 Thunderbolt, built by Republic Aviation, was the largest, heaviest and most expensive single-engine fighter plane in history. It was one of the most-used fighters by the U.S. Army Air Forces in WWII.

It was especially good at ground attacks, having four .50 caliber machine guns on each wing, though it was useful for mid-air fighting as well.

In Allied Assault, the P-47 is never used, but planes that appear to be Thunderbolts occasionally appear. They are first seen flying overhead at the beginning and end of basic training.
