The F-82 Twin Mustang is a heavy fighter manufactured by North American Aviation and was based on the P-51 Mustang. The F-82 was originally designed as a long-range fighter in World War II though its role was changed to night-fighting. On June 11, 1948, United States Air Force eliminated the P designation for pursuit and replaced it with F which pertains to fighter. The night fighter versions which were designated the F-82F/G required numerous modifications such as the removal of the right side cockpit to be replaced with a radar operator's position lacking flight controls. The most significant modification was the addition of a long radar pod attached to the underside of the center wing. The first F-82G that became operational was in late 1948. In mid 1949, F-82 became widespread and some of the E/F/G models were used by the United States Air Force. F-82Gs were also deployed to the 347th Fighter Group in Japan. The F-82G, though it missed its opportunity to fight in World War II, it distinguished itself during the Korean War. The F-82G has a crew of two. It has a maximum speed of 400 knots and a range of 1,950 nm. It incorporates 2 Allison V-1710-143/145 liquid-cooled V12 engines. The primary user and operator of the F-82 Mustang is the United States Air Force. There's a total of 270 F-82s built. Currently, there are three F-82s known to have existed.
