TBD-1 Devastator moments after take-off of a yorktown-class aircraft carrier

The Douglas TBD Devastator is now in-game as of update 1.53. The Devastator was the direct forefather to the famous TBF Avenger. It was slow and underpowered, which led to only 6 out of 41 to return from combat at the Battle of Midway. After this they were withdrawn from service, and by 1944 none remained in training squadrons. It hase a BR of 1.7 so it will mostly play with low tier 1's to mid tier 2's
