Captured Republic P - 47C Thunderbolt
Here are some images of Revell's 1/32 scale Republic P 47-C Thunderbolt "Razorback" in German Luftwaffe markings, operated by 2 Staffel. Captured Allied aircraft were often moved from airfield to airfield in order to train Luftwaffe pilots in combat techniques as well as to study the strengths and weaknesses of Allied aircraft. Captured bombers were often moved to the classified section KG200 because bombers often contained important navigational and radar equipment as well as mission charts , plans etc.
