Story behind the P-47 Thunderbolt The aircraft P-47 Thunderbolt was created by the Republic Aviation, lead by Alexander Kartvelishvili. Early 1940's could be named as the beginning of a new era. The Corporation was awarded with the contract of value in 56 499 923 US dollars for producing the modified and heavily equipped version of the P-35. Modifications included new requirements, coming from the officials of the military during the meeting in Dayton, Ohio and Alexander Kartvelishvili, also the participant of the meeting made a sketch of a new render with the pencil in hand. The story continuous on the way back from Dayton, with Republic Aviation’s chief designer Alexander “Sasha” Kartvelishvili, Army captain Marshall “Mish” Roth, and Republic’s C. Hart Miller were coming back from a Wright Field conference, where they had learnt that Republic’s two fighters, proposed to the Army, the P-44 Rocket and the XP-47 lightweight fighter, failed to give Army Air Corps the performance it wanted. The trio discussed ways to exploit the best of what they already had – the 2 000-hp. Pratt and Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp 18-cylinder, twin-row air-cooled engine they had selected for the XP-47, a superb cockpit design and the proven airfoil and wing of the P-43 Lancer. While discussing to built on these positive features to create a more robust fighter, Kartvelishvili jotted notes on the back of the envelope, giving rise to the legend on creating the Thunderbolt design.
