Default A Naval P-47?

Looking for naval fighters on the web I found this article with pictures of Republic P-47 Thunderbolts embarked on aircraft carriers. There was a naval version of this plane? The report and photos, never seen by me before, can be viewed at the link below:

Third were land-based aircraft not originally intended to operate from ships at sea, for example fighters such as the American Lockheed P-38 Lightning and Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, and the Japanese Nakajima Ki-43 (Oscar) and Kawasaki Ki-61 (Tony); long-range patrol bombers (of which the United States had a virtually unique monopoly) exemplified by the Consolidated-Vultee B-24 Liberator (and its naval variant, the PB4Y Privateer); medium bombers such as the American North American B-25 Mitchell (the marine PBJ), and the Japanese G-4M (Betty); and specialized light attack aircraft such as the American Douglas A-20 Havoc and Lockheed PV Harpoon, and the Australian Bristol Beaufighter.
