The Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was one of the main American fighters of World War II. It was even the most produced American fighter aircraft during the conflict with 15,660 units built [3]. American pilots nicknamed it The Jug because of its stocky shape reminiscent of a pitcher or jug ​​(stubby jug-like [4]). Its mass (it was the largest single-engine propeller fighter of its time) and its radial engine less vulnerable in combat allowed it to be used as a fighter-bomber. Despite its performance as a leading fighter, it quickly ceded its role of escort in Europe to the P-51 Mustang which, when fitted with the Merlin engine (built by Packard under license from Rolls-Royce), had a sufficient range to follow American bombers all over German territory.
