History

The Dreadnought is a Battleship, but it was designed as the biggest warship yet imagined and possibly the biggest ship of all time until the Frontier Project. For a very long time the Alamo Destroyer consistently outperformed any other pure warship and the Dreadnought is hoped to change that. Currently it is still undergoing construction, but the Frontier project has superseded it in terms of resources so it may take longer even than originally planned.

The Dreadnought is to be armed with 8 triple barreled gravitic projectile cannons, 35 dual barreled railguns, 250 heavy missile launchers, and 580 standard missile launchers. It also has hangar bays capable of handling over one hundred smallcraft. It has two large antimatter plasma Torch drives to provide thrust. Two different kinds of FTL drives have been proposed for it.
