    This is a P-70B-2 Nighthawk, a US Army Air Corps attempt to turn the A-20 Havoc bomber into a super-heavy twin engine fighter-destroyer in 1942. It was built as a stopgap measure in anticipation for the P-61 Black Widow fighters, which were being custom-made as heavy night fighters. All the same, the modified P-70's received continuous upgrades and use by the USAAC until they were finally withdrawn from service in early 1945 when enough P-61s were available to fully replace them.
