Title - European Air War


The P-47 Thunderbolt. or "Jug" sports eight .50 cal machine guns. You can elect to fire four or all eight together and they produce a satisfying roar!

The P-47 doesn't climb as well as some of the German fighters but accelerates very quickly in a dive. Chalking up the air kills is a risky business in EAW anyway.. the various ground targets make for a very tempting alternative....

After the bombers had finished their business I usually headed for the deck and followed a main road in the general direction of "home". Flying at about 1,000 and off to one side lets you look out the side of the canopy (visibility over the nose is not too good). Any higher and it can be hard to spot the vehicles and trains. Once you've scored a hit the tall, black smoke columns make it easier... although the remaining vehicles will sometimes drive off the road and under trees!
