The British first used the modified A-20 as a night fighter (Havoc II) and met with some success. The AAF followed suit and modified an A-20 (S/N 39-735) by installing radar and four 20mm cannon in a fuselage pod. The glass nose section of the A-20 was simply painted black in a P-70.
When the P-61 deliveries began, the P-70s were gradually taken out of combat service and used primarily as trainers.
