DOUGLAS SBD DAUNTLESS  The Dauntless was the most famous of the dive bombers used by the US Navy, earning its place in history by destroying four Japanese carriers at the battle of Midway. It also served with distinction at Coral Sea and in the Solomons campaign, and continued to be used until late 1944. It had slotted dive brakes that could be opened in the trailing edge of the wings to slow down its rate of descent when making near vertical dives on the target.

The Douglas SBD Dauntless was America's main naval dive bomber at the start of the war, and it served successfully in that role until the end of the war, even managing to shoot down quite a few Japanese aircraft along the way.   Its finest hour was during the battle of Midway, when Dauntlesses sank a cruiser and the four Japanese aircraft carriers used during the attack.
