Most likely. Don't know for sure, but it is as you say, essential. And a fun crate to fly.. at least to judje from my AotP experience of the little bugger http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'd be extremely surprised if it wasn't.

i found it very slow in climbing again to say 8000ft if i was at sea level and i needed to get up there quickly with a full bomb load.
however if i remember correctly they did improve the engine performance after midway.

I'm hoping for both Dauntless and Helldiver flyables. Of course, if given the choice the Dauntless is important in a longer period of time during the war than the Helldiver. Still, cake and eat it too comes to mind http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

it's obvious from past posts that the developers
are not in a hurry to give us the Devastator which was very important historically at the begining of the outbreak of hostilities end 1941,early 1942.Who knows maybe later on.If we also get the Helldiver in PF right from the start that would be great.i just could'nt control that plane while diving in cfs2.We still have 4 months to go and 16 friday afternoon development updates,lets hope for the best.

Some of the real pilots couldn't control the "beast" in a dive either! In some previous Pacific sims, featuring dive bombing, the SBD was a "blast" to fly and fight. If slow, it was nimble, solid and dependable. Apparently it had the lowest loss rate of any WWII USN carrier aircraft.
