Developed shortly after World War II, the Twin Mustang was not involved in the conflict, however, as it would have been his performance against the German fighters? The P-82 had anticipated the end of the war? What do you think? The link below provides an interesting report about these questions and an extensive collection of photographs, some rare and unreleased for me. To see the full report and the photos visit the link below:

Difficult to say. Twin engine fighters were not generally successful in WW2 compared to lighter more agile single engine types. I understand that the P82 was re-engined with lower power Allisons for nationalistic and commercial reasons but nonetheless proved a success, if understated in impact, during the Korean War, when it filled an important gap between older piston types and the relative lack of newer jet powered inventory.

Against the Luftwaffe? Probably unnecessary for that theatre of war, since the single engine Mustang was perfectly able to escort bombers across Germany. Of course the P82 was designed for the PAcific, to escort B29's over extremely long range, and was one of a number of projects built to meet that requirement - which turned out to be unnecessary. In fact, none of the very long range prototypes were a success and as far as I'm aware, only the P82 saw service from among them.
