A dreadnought is a superbattleship, designed to be the best possible battleship. The Imperial Navy places the dreadnought class designation on its latest, most effective battleships, redesignating them simply as battleships when their superior abilities are supplanted by newer construction.
The concept of a dreadnought does not mean that battleships are not built as well. Due to the expense of dreadnoughts, the Imperial Navy also acquires battleships.
