Dreadnought - Vector Graphics
Round vignette with image of Dreadnought on background with map and symbolism of Great Britain. The dreadnought was the predominant type of 20th-century battleship. The first of the kind, the Royal Navy`s Dreadnought had such an impact when launched in 1906 that battleships built after her were referred to as `dreadnoughts`, and earlier battleships became known as pre-dreadnoughts. Her design had two revolutionary features; an `all-big-gun` armament scheme and steam turbine propulsion. The arrival of the dreadnoughts renewed the naval arms race, principally between Britain and Germany but reflected worldwide, as the new class of warships became crucial symbol of national power.
