59 examples of the P-82G (Model NA-150) were also ordered. The P-82G
was basically similar to the P-82F, but had a SCR-720C radar set.
This included nine planes that were originally
ordered as P-82Fs but were completed to the standards of the P-82G. The
SCR-720C radar set was somewhat lighter than the APS-4 or APG-28 radar
of the P-82F, so the P-82G had a slightly better performance. Maximum
speed of the P-82G was 461 mph at 21,000 feet. Normal range was 2240
miles, with maximum range being 2495 miles. Service ceiling was
38,900 feet, and the initial climb rate was 3770 feet per minute.
Weights were 15,997 pounds empty and 25,891 pounds maximum.
Dimensions were wingspan 51 feet 3 inches, length 42 feet 5 inches,
height 13 feet 10 inches, and wing area of 408 square feet.
