Dreadnought — British promo premium Tier III battleship.

This ship began a new era in the naval history. It was the first battleship in the world whose main battery consisted only of large-caliber guns as well as the first ship of this type having a turbine-driven propulsion. She significantly surpassed her predecessors in size, speed, and armament in particular.

Player Opinion


Dreadnought is one of the more famous warships present in World of Warships, and she has the heavy burden of expectations that accompany any famous vessel for her to live up to.

Dreadnought is the second Tier III premium battleship, alongside the German battleship, König Albert. Like many of her peers at this tier, she possesses five twin-gun turrets, two of which exist as wing turrets, with one on either side of her hull. Like many of her counterparts, she has no super-firing front guns, so captains are forced to sail nearly full-broadside to get the maximum number of guns on target. Luckily, Dreadnought has a sturdy armor scheme that allows her to soak up a fair amount of damage.

In comparison to her tech-tree counterpart, Bellerophon, Dreadnought has less hit points, absolutely no anti-aircraft firepower, and is slightly slower. In exchange, Dreadnought is a bit more maneuverable in terms of rudder shift and turning circle, as well as having better concealment.

Like all low-tier battleships, captains of Dreadnought will be hard pressed to get any reasonable performance out of her guns at range, and should prioritize reaching close-range engagements. Her good maneuverability will serve her well in brawls, and make dodging enemy torpedoes easy.


  • Powerful main guns with good damage and penetration for both HE and AP shells.
  • Excellent turning circle and rudder shift time.
  • Decent concealment with 10.26KM surface detection.


  • Lower maximum speed and gun range than Bellerophon.
  • Slow turret traverse.
  • Non-existent anti-aircraft defense.


As a premium ship, Dreadnought doesn't have any upgrades to research.

Optimal Configuration


The recommended upgrades for Dreadnought are as follows:


Dreadnought can equip the following consumables:

Premium variants of the consumables can be equipped to improve her performance in battle.


Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits;

Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

As a premium ship, Dreadnought comes included with Type 9 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.


Dreadnought captains should mount standard signal flags to improve the ship's performance in battle. Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) flags are highly recommended to increase the ship's top speed. India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.) and India Yankee (-20% to fire duration.) flags should be mounted to improve the ship's survivability. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) flags can also be mounted to decrease consumable cooldown time. Lastly, economic and special signal flags can be mounted to increase the ship's economic gains per battle.
