I am requesting a P-47 Razorback P-47D Teardrop and a P-47N
I would like to see this in ArmA because the P-47 has always been my favorite aircraft of all time, and I'd love to see her in game, I'm sure many people love to see her as well

Information:
The P-47 was the heaviest single engined prop fighter of WWII. It was also the most produced have created over 15,500+ The aircraft back during the war cost $85,000 in which today is the equivalent of $1,119,690.83. The P-47 had 8 .50 caliber machine guns 4 per wing, and could hold up to 3,400 rounds total. The P-47 fully loaded weighed 8 tons, and had about half the range of a P-51, but it could carry half the payload of a B-17 Flying Fortress, the P-47N was the latest and greatest of the P-47s, it had a redesigned wing and it had the same range as a P-51 Mustang, it had a better roll rate a faster climb rate and faster speed than just about any other P-47. The P-47 claimed 20 Luftwaffe Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighters, and four Arado Ar 234 jet bombers in aerial combat, proving its effectiveness in combat with the much more advanced and faster German aircraft. The P-47 like many other American radial engined aircraft used the Pratt and Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp Engine

P-47s could take a lot of damage: here's a picture of one that lost it's wing after colliding with a chimney, the pilot managed to land it and is actually one of the men posing in the picture:
