The SB2C Helldiver was the replacement for the SBD Dauntless. It proved fast and tough, first seeing combat in 1943. The Helldiver was delivered in large numbers (7,140), equipped many U.S. Navy squadrons, and inflicted a lot of damage on the enemy in the Pacific. Helldivers could be seen operating from NAS Jax circa 1947.
