----- the most powerful ship -----

Point Value: 1

The aptly named `Dread Naught' has little to fear from other units of this period. Subs may sink them with enough effort, and a group of bombers and fighters are also deadly, but with eight hit points to start, a battleship can usually survive long enough to escape. Battleships are very effective against cities and armies, at least the ones on the coast.
