The North American F-82 Twin Mustang was the last American piston-engine fighter ordered into production by the United States Air Force. Based on the P-51 Mustang, the F-82 was originally designed as a long-range escort fighter in World War II; however, the war ended well before the first production units were operational.

In the postwar era, Strategic Air Command used the planes as a long-range escort fighter. Radar-equipped F-82s were used extensively by the Air Defense Command as replacements for the Northrop P-61 Black Widow as all-weather day/night interceptors. During the Korean War, Japan-based F-82s were among the first USAF aircraft to operate over Korea. The first three North Korean aircraft destroyed by U.S. forces were shot down by F-82s, the first being a North-Korean Yak-11downed over Gimpo Airfield by the USAF 68th Fighter Squadron.

No, it's a supertester image. I think he found it playing the 1.9 CT. That plane is out there.

I hope that the MG pod under the wings is interchangeable. Otherwise it would be a dream ramming plane

​If you look at the tech tree for American planes, the Twin Mustang is listed as "Aircraft being tested". Premium of course.

How long does this plane take to test? This thread is about 1 and a half years old.

I just happened to notice it on the main website and I didn't  want to start a new thread.
