Designed for WWII, but came to late. The F-82 did acheive some success in Korea though.

What would have been the role of that type of aircraft with 2 canopies. Did it have 2 pilots???

YES it did have 2 pilots. reason is becuase it was designed for the PTO & they was a need for a long range escourt fighter for the B-29.

Left seat (canopy) pilot.
Right seat co-pilot/Radar operator.
The right seat had a limited set of gages
and a full set of controls.
The arrangement made for the perfect prop night fighter.

The XP-82 pictured in this post flew long before
VJ day. The range of the P-51D and P-51H made
the effort less important. The P-82 could
easily have been ready before the end of hostilities.

But remember folks, unlike the Bf-109Z, the P-82
FLEW and saw combat albeit in Korea.

It's funny-looking but still pretty.
