Called the "Dauntless", this simple yet robust dive bomber was used extensively during the Great War.
In the hands of a skilled pilot it can even be used as a fighter.


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" Dive Bomber Attack 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).
