Like the English Electric Lightning, the Mirajning (derivative of the Mirage 5) featured 2 jets one above the other, without asymmetry if one is shut off for cruise flight:

Looking very much like a Nord Griffon, also French.  ;D

Tophe:
The Mirajning (and the EE Lightning) had 2 turbojets, 2 jet exhausts.
The Nord Griffon had a turbo-ramjet (does this count as 2 engines ?), 1 jet exhaust.

Tophe:
There were Mustangs having 3 little jets in the tail for boosting performance:

Yes, I know that Tophe, but the layout is similar to your design. I think the turbo-ramjet did count as being twin-engined,  even though the turbine was actually inside the ramjet part.

Tophe:
Thanks!

Does a motorjet (piston + afterburner) also count as 2 engines?

More simple, the Turbomeca Mirage used 2 little jets:
