Intended as a successor to the SBD Dauntless
XSB2D-1 was an unspectacular aircraft. It was large, complicated and heavy, with a R-3350
radial engine, an inverted gull, laminar flow wing, two remote controlled gun turrets, and
nosewheel landing gear. Two were built. The USN changed its policy, and the SB2D design
was modified to become the single-seat BTD.
