P-47D aircraft with default loadout of 12.7mm MG will not fight in AAW, do not even show having an Air Weapon range, just Surface Weapon range. Just to make sure, I tried P-51D, they show Air Weapon and Surface Weapon circles, even when aimed with just default 12.7mm guns.
UPDATE: To be precise, the P-47D will attempt to dogfight, in other words they do try to chase the enemy aircraft. They just can't shoot them because they don't have a viable air to air weapon.
Corrected first entry to reflect that the P-47D does have the 12.7mm guns, not the 20mm cannon.
And this is probably why, the weapon doesn't show aircraft as a viable target.
