ID: 0029952 - [1.49.8.96] German P-47D is wrong P-47D model

The German P-47D currently in game is an unknown model with a bubble canopy. The first batches of the P-47D's to feature this new bubble canopy were Farmingdale's P-47D-25-RE and Evansville's P-47D-26-RA. The issue is that the German P-47D in game is not representative of the P-47D's operated by Versuchsverband Ob.d.L. & KG 200

The Luftwaffe operated two P-47D's that I am aware of

 

P-47D-2-RA "Beetle" (42-22490) with a Luftwaffe side code of T9+FK {also had the US side code of YF+U retained for a little while for propaganda films)

 

P-47D-15-RE (42-75971) with a Luftwaffe side code of T9+LK [the book has a typo listing it as a -11, the serial number matches the -15 production block]

 

The D-2-RA and D-15-RE were razorback P-47D's with the framed canopy
