Today’s Aviation History post featured the P-47 Thunderbolt, and MonkeyPuzzle shared this photo and diagram of the Thunderbolt’s turbo-supercharger which I thought deserved some wider attention. It’s pretty amazing to see just how big it is. In fact, the turbo-supercharger was designed first, and the aircraft was designed around it. This helps to understand just why the Jug was such a huge aircraft.

H/T to MonkeyPuzzle for finding the images
