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.
