An improved version of the simple and sturdy masterpiece dive bomber.
Despite being around since the early days of the war, it was deployed to the front lines in carrier task forces until the SB2C Helldiver had sufficient numbers to supplant it.
Nicknamed the "Dauntless", it is a famous carrier-based dive bomber that is capable of limited air-to-air combat in the hands of a skilled pilot.
This plane is an improved late-war model with a more powerful engine.
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 shoot 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.
