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 during the second world war. Battleships built after 1906 are often called dreadnoughts.
