Helldiver je nasledil uspešnega SBD Dauntlessa in je bil kljub večjim dimenzijah hitrejši od predhodnika. Helldiverje so uporabljali na Pacifiku v zadnjih dveh letih vojne. Kljub temu, da je imel probleme s krmarljivostjo, je bil uspešen v bojih. Deloma tudi zaradi visoke usposobljenosti posadk.

Skupno so zgradili okrog 7140 letal.
