Wow! That is an awesome Hellcat!

Look like the P47 Thunderbolt, excellent Hellcat Cybermax.

What a cool idea. Actually I think anything with a bubble canopy tends to become much sleeker and doubtless it would have increased the speed of the Hellcat by a small margin too thanks to the reduced drag. The only thing it might need is more tail area to compensate.

That hellcat looks very similar to the Bearcat in having that barrel look n tear drop canopy but at a smaller size over the much larger bearcat

Actually the bubble canopy increases the drag slightly; that's why the "razorback" designs stuck around for as long as they did and even stuck around at all (and why later supersonic designs like the F-4 and F-102 dropped all-round visibility), it provides smoother airflow over the fuselage. But at that time all-around visibility was considered more important than the almost negligible increase in drag, and more powerful engines more than made up for it anyway.
