Powered by the largest Pratt & Whitney engine ever developed at that time, the Thunderbolt was equipped with eight .50-caliber machine guns and heavy armor. One of the largest fighter planes ever built, it also was one of the toughest, enabling pilots to return to their base even after the plane was damaged in combat. The bubbletop P-47s were nicknamed "Superbolts" by combat pilots in the field.
