A Battleship is a large, heavilly armed and armored warship, generally the largest class in the fleet. The term stems from Line of Battle, a common naval formation used by opposing fleets. Battleships were the backbone of the world's navies until the advent of the aircraft carrier. Battleships built after 1906 are often called Dreadnoughts.
