The Dauntless was the US Navy's standard dive bomber, it was the first US Navy plane to sink an enemy ship, a Japanese sub, in WWII just days after Pearl Harbour. The first real test came on 7th May 1942, when US aircraft carriers, USS Lexington and USS Yorktown, faced three Japanese carriers in the Battle of the Coral Sea.
