This plane is the latest mass-produced version of the last true dive-bomber developed by the US to replace the masterpiece SBD.
Its operational deployment was delayed and it was only deployed to the front when the war's outcome was forgone.
With its powerful bombs, it carried out dive bombing attacks against the remnants of the Imperial Japanese Navy.
Dive Bombers are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to do damage during the Airstrike, with their "Dive Bombing" stat being the most important factor in this regard. Dive Bombers are additionally needed for dealing damage during day Shelling, especially for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI).
- They are vulnerable to shut down during most Aerial Combat phases.
- They bring some accuracy bonus against PT Imp.
- They cannot attack Installations unless they are Anti-Installation Dive Bombers.
This dive bomber has the ability to target installations during shelling.
