One of six different types of hulls. With the exception of a few, battleships are all named after emotions or feelings, mostly negative ones.
Battleships use two broadside firing arrays instead of a single one. This gives them the ability to output twice as much damage if there are targets in range on both sides of the ship.
They are relatively slow ships without any support field or thrusters. But in high level combat when properly equipped and supported, they are versatile, mobile and deadly warships commonly seen fighting VEGA fleets and in PvP. They are very popular ships, since they are agile, possess deadly amounts of firepower and very flexible in their roles as well as relatively low amount of repair time.
Battleships also have the highest capacity for weaponry compared to their capacity for defences like armour and shielding and strongly emphasis on destruction and firepower.
Battleships have the lowest base turning speeds of any ships in the game.
