In May 1941, as the war raged in Europe, a single-engine fighter of more than 4 tons made its first flight. This fighter was the XP-47B, prototype of the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt of which a total of 15,683 units would be built. From the appearance of the P-51 Mustang, the P-47D Thunderbolt showed its power during ground attack missions. The P-47D Thunderbolt "Bubbletop" fitted with the bubble canopy attained fame as a powerful, well-balanced fighter-bomber. The 1/4-ton 4x4 Light Vehicle featured its powerful, lightweight chassis and reliable engine, and even only during WWII, over 600,000 units were produced.
