In ''Mass Effect'', a dreadnought is the largest class of space warship, making it capable of mounting the largest [[mass accelerator]] weapons. These weapons extend almost the full length of the ship, which is typically 800 to 1000 meters long, maximizing the time they have to accelerate a large projectile.

The mass accelerator of an ''Everest''-class [[Systems Alliance]] dreadnought accelerates 20 kg slugs to 1.3% of C, giving each one kinetic energy comparable to a 38-kiloton bomb, and fires twelve times per minute. In the game timeframe, the Alliance navy includes three Everest-class dreadnoughts and five Kilimanjaro-class dreadnoughts. The turian navy has 39 dreadnoughts; the asari navy has 20; and the salarian navy has 16.
