Douglas TBD Devastator was an American torpedo bomber of the United
States Navy. Ordered in 1934, it first flew in 1935 and entered service
in 1937. At that point, it was the most advanced aircraft flying for the
Navy and possibly for any navy in the world. However, the fast pace of
aircraft development quickly caught up with it, and by the time of the
Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor the TBD was already outdated.
