From Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Battleship is a general term to describe the largest combat ships fielded in galactic warfare (Space Stations, Space Hulks and Craftworlds do not classify as ships).

Overview

Battleships are the largest fighting vessels in space, gigantic vessels with enough firepower often possess vast amounts of firepower capable of laying waste to entire planets. They also contain landing bays for Attack craft and are commonly used as the capital ships in fleets due to the greater protection offered by their defences. They are usually accompanied by Cruisers and Escorts, as they are so large and slow that they prove ponderous to maneuver.[10]
