I've recently gotten back from a decently long hiatus from the game and have gotten back into playing, I've noticed however an influx of SBD players recently. I have also noticed that said SBD players tend to play very campy. In that they typically on Death star for example, they tend to box camp the majority of the rounds. Is there no other way to play SBD's outside of abusing hit boxes? As a very slow class with very obvious counters I can see why they're focused on defensive play but surely being the tank of the imperial team they should have more versatility in their play? I'm by no means an experienced SBD player (Although I'd like to learn soon enough), but I just don't understand alternatives to playing them in the way they are most commonly played. As from my spectating SBD players what tends to happen is a. They camp behind a corner with their arm sticking out the side typically at a choke point or any other potentially defensive cover spots (although quite commonly again slightly abusing hit boxes), or b. they move around try to be aggressive and end up getting caught out alone or with minimal team support and die relatively quickly. So how exactly are you meant to play the class without camping and abusing hit boxes as from experience it can be quite annoying trying to fight an SBD or SBDs who is using hit box exploiting cover or worse abusing advanced targeting to shoot over said cover. Again specifically for Death star and Dotf being the only maps played on NA. I'm generally both interested to potentially learn more about the class and its strategies outside of the typical play that tends to appear.
- In the movie, we see Nick Jonas' character, Aviation Machinist Mate Bruno Gaido, jumping into a Dauntless SBD's turret while the plane is still parked on the USS Enterprise's deck. He mans the.30 caliber machine gun and fires at an incoming Japanese Mitsubishi G4M 'Betty' bomber that has both engines on fire.
- Directed by Michael Winner. With Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan, Lee J. Cobb, Robert Duvall. A lawman from Bannock arrives in Sabbath to arrest all the cattlemen whose wild celebration the year before resulted in the accidental death of an old man.

The Douglas SBD Dauntless is 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-based scout/dive bomber from mid-1940 through mid-1944. The SBD was also flown by the United States Marine Corps, both from land air bases and aircraft carriers.
- It started its career at Pearl Harbor in October 1943. From there it went to Espiritu Santo in the South Pacific in March of '44 and was assigned to 25 Squadron of the Royal New Zealand Air Force. During its brief service with the RNZAF, it flew 32 combat missions from Bougainville. In May of that year it was returned to the U.S. Navy at Russell Island and departed for San Diego in June.
- Best known for its dive-bombing success against the Japanese during the Battle of Midway during World War II. Armed with two forward-firing .50-caliber machine guns and flexible twin .30-caliber guns aft, the SBD was well defended while diving on a target with its typical configuration of a 500- or 1,000-pound bomb.
- In 1958, museum founder Ed Maloney obtained Planes of Fame Air Museum's SBD Dauntless from a Hollywood film studio, minus its wings.
- Restoration of the SBD by the Museum began in 1982 and was completed in 1987.
- The museum's SBD is an actual combat veteran.
- This aircraft is currently the only true Navy SBD Dauntless flown regularly.
- This Dauntless was used in the movie Midway, with Charlton Heston being filmed in the cockpit.
