(1) This aircraft saw very little, if any, actual combat, despite being the best of its type available.

(2) It was available in fairly substantial numbers.

(6) It was twin engine.

(7) Three versions were produced; a day fighter, a night fighter, and a ground attack fighter. Most types produced were ground attack. A high altitude prototype was also produced.

(8) Only two of the high altitude prototype versions were produced. These had pressurized cabins.
