HMS Dreadnought entered service with the Royal Navy in 1906 & at this time she was the most advanced battleship in the world. In fact so revolutionary was her design all subsequent battleships that followed her were known as Dreadnoughts, all those before her were known as pre-Dreadnoughts & were now effectively obsolete.

She was the first battleship of her era to have a uniform main battery of guns , rather than a few larger guns complimented by a heavy secondary armament of smaller guns. Dreadnought was powered by steam turbines, which was also a first & made her the fastest battleship in the world. This would cause a Naval arms race in particular with Germany in the build up to WWI.


HMS Dreadnought had a top speed of 21 knots & was armed with 10 x 12-inch guns, 27 x 12-pounder guns & 5 x 18-inch torpedo tubes
