How would you compare following fighters: p47 vs p51?
The American P-47 “Thunderbolt” and P-51 “Mustang” were both vitally important aircraft within the Second World War and the subsequent decades following. Although the Mustang is a much more well known aircraft, it was not as powerful or as structurally sound as the Thunderbolt.
The Mustang was also much more vulnerable to enemy fire, and its engine was prone to breakages even from a small amount of enemy fire. The two airplanes, however, were created for separate purposes, with the Mustang being for escort missions and the Thunderbolt more as a lone fighter-bomber.
In general, pilots of the era who flew both planes admit that the Thunderbolt was a superior aircraft which had far more advantages than the Mustang and was far safer both in flight and landing.
