I’m sure I mentioned this before in another thread so stop me if you already heard it.
At an airshow I met a P47 pilot who was standing next to a Thunderbolt kind of like a tour guide.
He said they would disabled two of the machine guns because it slowed the aircraft too much when all eight were fired at the same time.
