I would have to say the P-47 Thunderbolt - especially the P-47N which was specifically built for the Pacific theater and had a greater range than the D model. The N model had a redesigned and strengthened wings with 18 extra inches of wingspan plus larger ailterons and square-cut tips which increased the T-bolt's roll rate and increased maneuverability and a top speed of 460 m.p.h.

This model I particularly loved plus all T-bolts could give a lot of punishment with its EIGHT not six, 50-caliber machine guns and it could take a lot a punishment in return.  The Mustang couldn't, even though the 'Stang was a better dogfighter. 

Cobra, you forgot two great warbirds that made a difference in the Pacific - the F6F Hellcat and F4U Corsair - both were excellent Zero killers and both made a big difference in the war.

The Thunderbolt is more like a flying tank, really strong and somehow nice... But F4-u has its style, and what style!!! >:D
