The Twin Mustang was one of the first American fighters to fly combat missions in Korea following the June 1950 Communist invasion. The F-82G Twin Mustang is the night fighter version, equipped with a SCR-720C18 radar in a large pod and the second cockpit equipped for a radar operator. This version entered service in 1948 as a replacement for war-weary P-61 Black Widow night fighters. By 1953, the F-82 had been removed from service, replaced by the F-84 Thunderstreak and F-94 Starfire.
