JG Juggernauts???

Recommended Posts

It's no secret for my love towards my rotary and radial powerplants. From Dreidecker, Camel, FW190, and now my all time favorite p47 razorback! So I was looking at the calendar for the squadron to make sure i didn't interfere with anything... and was wondering if anyone would be interested in flying some BIG AMERICAN MUSCLE on Sundays after 9pm Est?

 

P.S. i painted my p47's after the 56th FS (later split into the 61st,62nd, and 63rd) which trained in my hometown airfield and patrolled New York/ New England airspace until shipped on the boat over the pond.

My girl Dolores does not disappoint

As long as she passes the fidelity test.

 

On a side note if it wasn't for the pictures I wouldn't have realized the razorback was released.

Was a little bored today. So I decided to do a little research into Klai’s grandfather’s squadron.  This one is “Jenny Rebel”. My grandfather was in the pacific theatre. So until we get some pby5a’s or a SBD Dauntless, I’ll have to hold off on my grandfather’s paint schemes.

Here's another one from the 389th Fighter Squadron:

Republic P-47D-20-RE Thunderbolt 42-76378 of the 389th Fighter Squadron, 366th Fighter Group, 9th Air Force.

According to the book I have on the 366th Fighter Group (Angels Zero: P-47 Close Air Support in Europe, by Robert V. Brulle) - 

Quote

Lt. Karl Hallberg, 389th squadron, survived the explosion of a 500-pound bomb that dropped off his aircraft on landing at Y-29, 31 December 1944.  He sustained head wounds and a concussion that hospitalized him for a while.  He was bestowed the title "Luckiest Pilot in the 366th."

Pardon my French, but heilige Scheisse! If I were the surviving pilot I would've sent a crate of fine Scotch to Republic Aviation...

S! All,

Did my first P47-D28 skin... for our Sunday Night missions (with AngryGoat)
I'm still messing around with it... did some long learning about the Alpha channel and the metal aspect of it!
And no, it's not historic... it's the Bone Crusher skin! ;)

AAR on our last Sunday missions (on the Finnish Virtualpilots server):

1st mission
We took off from Gelendzhik-1 AF in the South near the Coast with 2 x P47 D28 (with each 2 x 500 pound bombs).
To make our way to our target (rear Fuel Depot), we took a safer path near the Coast.
After reaching our target in sector 0815 tac 5, our flight leader (AngryGoat) gave us the sign to dive down and bomb the German rear Fuel Depot.
All 4 x 500 pounds bombs hit the target and we made our way back to the Coast to RTB and make our way to our landing AF 1419 tac 8.

--------------

2nd mission
We took off again from Gelendzhik-1 AF in the South near the Coast with 1 x P47 D28 and 1 x P47 D22 (with each 2 x 500 pound bombs).
To make our way to our target (Front Panzer Base), we took a safer path near the Coast.
After reaching our target in sector 0916, our flight leader (AngryGoat) saw a Stuka passing just over our flight... so he dropped his bombs and went after the Stuka...
and got some real good shots on him... I did the same, but forgot to drop my bombs... I did get a few shots on the Stuka before my plane got fire...
At that time, I jumped out of the plane and made my way down near the enemy Panzer Base. The flight lead was able to make is way back home, with some minor holes in is P47 D22 wings!


Note: we are looking to get 2 more pilots on Sunday Night... if you would like to fly the P47 D28 or D22... you are more then welcome to join!

The General and I have been using the 56th fg as our base paint schemes (AKA: Zemke's Wolfpack 61st,62nd,63rd) for our Sunday American Muscle. Pretty fun if anyone wants to join... Or if you're Vonrd and would like to see a nice paint scheme before he blows it out of the sky!!!
