The McDonnell XP-67 "Bat" or "Moonbat"

The McDonnell XP-67 "Bat" or "Moonbat"[N 1] was a prototype for a twin-engine, long range, single-seat interceptor aircraft for the United States Army Air Forces. Although the design was conceptually advanced, it was beset by numerous problems and never approached its anticipated level of performance. The project was cancelled after the sole completed prototype was destroyed by an engine fire.

    Its a shame that they could n`t change to turboprop engines.I do see some influence to the later jet designs like the FH-1 Phantom Navy fighter
