The Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, also known as the Curtiss A-25 Shrike, was a dive bomber developed by Curtiss-Wright during World War II. As a carrier-based bomber with the United States Navy (USN), in Pacific theaters, it supplemented and replaced the Douglas SBD Dauntless. A few survivors are extant. Primary Role: Dive Bomber.

The Curtiss SB2C Helldiver was designed to replace the Douglas SBD Dauntless as a shipboard dive bomber. However the original couple of variants were very deficient according to pilots. It took hundreds of changes and modifications such as a bigger engine, perforated dive flaps to obtain more accurate dive aiming. It wasn’t until the summer of 1944 when the SB2C-3 and October that year when the SB2C-4 arrived; that pilots were pleased with the performance. The Helldiver went on to destroy the more Japanese targets than any other USN dive bomber.
