With its heavy engine and sturdy body, the "TBF" is the mainstay torpedo bomber that took to the skies during the later stages of the Pacific War.
With the name of Avenger, this state-of-the-art carrier-capable torpedo bomber would unleash a crushing blow on many of Japan's naval groups under the protection of the F6F series.


Torpedo BombersTorpedo BomberNight Torpedo Bomber/Night Bomber 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 "Torpedo" Torpedo Attack stat being the most important factor in this regard. Torpedo Bombers are additionally needed for dealing damage during day Shelling, especially for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI).
