The opening sentence reads "HMS Dreadnought was a Royal Navy battleship that revolutionised naval power." Is this actually true? As the article says, Dreadnought itself saw no significant action, and the only battle between dreadnought fleets was Jutland, which decided nothing.
The innovation that revolutionised naval power in WWI, and has continued to do so was the large scale use of submarines. Even at Jutland, the fear of running into submarines was a big factor. JQ (talk) 06:11, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
While that may be true, although I think you'd have a hard time finding support for that statement, submarines didn't make obsolete every single example of a type of ship like Dreadnought made the battleships that preceded her.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 13:33, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
She was, at the time of completion, the most advanced warship in the world. Also, not a single dreadnought was sunk by submarines during the first world war. Wandavianempire (talk) 15:05, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
