This rather strange looking beastie is the Douglas XB-42 "Mixmaster" (1944-48) - a U.S. experimental bomber designed to be "faster than the de Havilland Mosquito but with defensive armament and twice the bomb load." Their unconventional idea was installing it's two engines within the fuselage, to drive a massive pair of contra-rotating propellers built in the tail in a pusher configuration, thus leaving the wing, and fuselage, free of drag-inducing protrusions, ahem, should you see what I mean.
Two prototypes were built, but, with the big WW II party soon to end, coupled with the arrival of those pesky jet engines, new priorities somewhat canned the project.
