SBD is a rare case of an outdated plane that ended up punching 2 categories above its weight class. It is unbelievable that this plane served till the end of the war and was critical at all major PTO naval battles (that involves carriers). The other obsolete relic to achieve miracles is the Swordfish.

Recent studies indicate that the terrible climb rate of the SBD was due to the giant brass balls of its pilots.

I want this module for the coolness factor alone (yes it will be terrible in multiplayer...)

I watched the new Midway movie the other day and in all the scenes where the SBDs are diving on the Japanese carriers, through clouds and flak, the back seat gunner trying to hold off the pursuing Zeroes, all I could think of was - damn, can't wait to do that in DCS!
