Nickname given to the Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, an American Carrier-based Dive Bomber of World War II. Earned its nickname form frustrated pilots who found its handling characteristics very undesireable. Despite the fact that the Helldiver was better armed and armored, most U.S Navy dive bomber pilots prefered the Helldiver's predecessor, the Dauntless.
