Dreadnoughts are a late game Ships, unlocked by Non-Baryonic Shielding Technology. However, this is the only ship class that does not possess any bonuses. Dreadnoughts provide twice the HP 1020healthPoints and Tonnage 1009weightSmall for 4x the price of Battleships and Cruisers.

Being the largest ship in the game, the Dreadnought can mount more Weapons, more Support, and more Defense Modules than any other. This becomes useful for its survivability. The high 1009weightSmall Capacity allows it to equip a large number of 1020healthPoints and Defense Modules without sacrificing firepower.

StrategiesEdit

Isolating a Dreadnought with Missiles isn't a good idea. Due to the way targeting functions, all of the Missiles will launch towards a single target. It's a waste of firepower if the AI decides to arbitrarily launch a 40 Missile salvo towards a Destroyer.

Groups of pure Dreadnoughts are extremely vulnerable to packs of smaller ships. Always mix in a few smaller escort ships to draw the fire away from your Dreadnaughts. Battleships and Destroyers excel at this role. Keeping a fleet's Dreadnoughts alive is essential, and avoid sacrificing them needlessly. The 1020healthPoints bonuses Dreadnoughts gain from leveling up are quite powerful. Experienced Dreadnoughts can end up with several times more 1020healthPoints than they started with. These will be extremely difficult for your opponent to kill.
