The Douglas SBD Dauntless is an American naval scout plane and dive bomber that was manufactured by Douglas Aircraft between 1940 and 1944.  The acronym "SBD" stood for "Scout Bomber Douglas."  This aircraft was the US Navy's main carrier based scout plane and dive bomber during WWII.  It possessed long range, good handling characteristics, maneuverability, and bomb load.  Most notably, the SBD had excellent defensive armament and dive capability which allowed it to deliver ordnance on target with great precision.  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 Legend SBD Dauntless is manufactured by Vinhquang Models of Vietnam.
