It had great structural strength and massive radial engine that could withstand damage better than the other plane. The P-47D model was the major production version and 6,315 were built. This aircraft was power by a water-injected version of the 2,000hp R-2800 engine, which gave it a top speed of 433mph at 30,000 feet. The P-47 models prior to D-25 became known as "Razorbacks."
