The speed of a battlestar isn't clear.  They are clearly capable of undertaking interstellar journeys in a reasonably short time, but their method of FTL propulsion was never stated.  Combat speeds appear to be entirely sublight, although the captain of the ''Pegasus'' once boasted that he would try to "bring it up to lightspeed" to execute a flanking maneuver against a Cylon attack.

As in the original series, a battlestar serves primarily as a starfighter carrier.  The ship also has nuclear missiles and railguns for directly engaging Cylon capital ships.  A battlestar is also capable of producing an obscene amount of [[point-defense]] fire.
