Grumman TBF Avenger is an American carrier-based naval bomber.

DescriptionEdit

The Grumman Avenger was a versatile naval bomber, which could not only carry torpedoes, but also bombs, rockets and depth charges for anti-submarine warfare. It has been developed to replace obsolete designs like the Douglas TBD Devastator and was usually deployed onboard of aircraft carriers. The aircraft is also armed with two forward firing M2 Browning machine guns for strafing, another M2 Browning machine gun in a dorsal turret and a M1919 Browning machine gun in the ventral position to fend off pursuing enemy fighters.

The Avenger is also available to the British, who deploy them in two variants: a ground attack aircraft armed with eight rockets, and an anti-submarine warfare version with depth charges. Because the torpedoes and depth charges have been carried inside a bomb bay in the fuselage, they can't be seen from outside until dropped.

All Avengers can only be found on aircraft carriers. They appear in maps such as Battle of Midway, 4205-Operation Ironclad, and 4501-Operation Matador.
