Wallpaper Description:
Photo edit of color enhancement, cropping, and image clairity

Republic Aviation's P-47 Thunderbolt, also known as the "Jug", was the largest, heaviest, and most expensive fighter aircraft in history to be powered by a single reciprocating engine. (18 cylinder 2,804 ci, 46L, 2,535 hp) It was one of the main United States Army Air Forces fighters of World War II, and served with other Allied air forces. The P-47 was effective in air combat but proved especially adept at ground attack. It had eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing. When fully loaded the P-47 could weigh up to eight tons. A modern-day counterpart in that role, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, takes its name from the P-47.

That was a two row radial engine too
9 on each row as radial engines require that they be odd number of cylinders :)
