Republic XP-47H Thunderbolt

The XP-47H was perhaps the most visually distinctive of all Thunderbolt variants. The reason for this was its replacement of the radial engine used in every other model with a Chrysler XIV-2220-11/GE inline inverted-vee liquid cooled engine. The resulting aircraft was somewhat more streamlined than the standard Thunderbolt, and the engine offered 2,500hp. Despite this the top speed of the XP-47H was only 414mph. Neither the aircraft nor its engine made it into production.
