The Douglas SBD Dauntless was the US Navy's main carrier-borne scout plane and dive–bomber, and was a good match in combat against the faster, but lightly armored Japanese fighters. Able to carry a substantial bomb load, the Dauntless proved to be very effective in sinking Japanese ships, and it earned glory during the famous Battle of Midway. The SBD–5 was the definitive model of the series, with an increased ammunition capacity and a more powerful engine than its predecessors had. It was also produced in a land-based variant, the A–24 Banshee.

|The Douglas SBD-5 Dauntless was the most advanced version of this aircraft to see service with the US Navy and the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm during World War 2. The French Navy also put the type into service towards the end of the war. Though the SBD-3 was made famous by the Battle of Midway the SBD-5 was involved in the dive bombing & sinking of several key Japanese capital ships such as the Yamato and it's sister-ship Mushashi in 1944 - 1945. Being a WW2 or WGS Series 6 aircraft and part of the latest series to be released by Ares Games (June 2016) this aircraft comes featuring the additional pilot skill and aircraft capability cards which are unique to it. These are included within the Aircraft Special Pack. The two-seater Dauntless fires forwards and to the rear because of it's tail gunner: As with the SBD-5 Dauntless (Lee) and A-24B Banshee (Ruet) this explains why though issued in single-seat fighter sized boxes the aircraft forms part of the WGS2*** range. Can perform conventional and dive bombing missions too for which bombing cards and target cards are required (found in the WW2 Rules and Accessories Pack.)|
