FSX – Douglas SBD Dauntless Updated. The Douglas SBD Dauntless was 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-borne scout plane and dive bomber from mid-1940 through mid-1944. 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. This is an FSX update for the Dauntless SBD-3, originally designed for FS2004 by the late Paul Clawson. It combines the original model and an earliar panel update by Erwin Welker. This package features a modified VC with e few more gauges added and an enhanced and more realistic appearance. Both the VC and 2D panel are based upon Pierre Langer’s photo-realistic panel designs. Credits go to Paul Clawson for the original model, to Pierre Langer for the original panel design and the Dauntless gauges as well as to Erwin Welker for his panel modifications, extra camera views and rear gunner view.
