Auto Credit Based on Dllama4's 123 Part Challenge

The Douglas SBD Dauntless is a World War II American naval scout plane and dive bomber that was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft from 1940 through 1944. The SBD ("Scout Bomber Douglas") was the United States Navy's main carrier-based scout/dive bomber from mid-1940 through mid-1944. The SBD was also flown by the United States Marine Corps, both from land air bases and aircraft carriers. The SBD is best remembered as the bomber that delivered the fatal blows to the Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway in June 1942. The type earned its nickname "Slow But Deadly" (from its SBD initials) during this period.
(Wikipedia)

SBD is also famous for sinking the largest number of Japanese vessels among Allied aircraft. In sea battles such as the Battle of the Bohai Sea and the Midway Sea, almost all Japanese aircraft carriers were dismissed and sometimes used as naval fighters or attack aircraft belonging to the army.

    @AWESOMENESS360 Yeah. This is a simple example of how practical this airplane is.
    By the way, the bomber Type 99 Kan baku (艦爆=dive bomber) used by my country's navy at that time was called "Type 99 Kan oke(棺桶=coffin)" because it was extremely vulnerable to hits.

    Huh, I've never actually known that the SBD in it's name stood for "Slow But Deadly". You learn something new everyday, huh?
