The heavily-armed Black Widow was the United States' first aircraft specifically designed as a night-fighter. The P-61 carried radar equipment in its nose that enabled its crew of three, pilot, gunner, and radar operator, to locate enemy aircraft in total darkness and fly into proper position to attack. It was armed with four .50-cal. machine guns in it's upper turret and four 20mm cannons in it's lower fuselage, it could also carry 6,400 lbs. of bombs.  During World War II, Northrop built approximately 700 P-61s; 41 of these were model C manufactured in the summer of 1945,  offering greater speed and capable of operating at higher altitude.
