The P-47 Thunderbolt ran contrary to all precepts of fighter  design. It was the biggest and heaviest aircraft to be powered by a single piston  engine and, at that time, it was also the most expensive. However, calling the P-47 Thunderbolt successful would be an understatement: it became the most prolific of all U.S.  fighters, with 12,600 of the "D" variant alone being built. What was this plane's  secret to success?

Book Description 
Production P-47 Thunderbolts were in the air in early 1943, excelling in bomber escort and ground-attack  bombing. P-47s were flown by the air forces of Australia, Brazil, France, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain--more than 12,000 planes in all, more than any other U.S. fighter before or since.
