HSM Dreadnought - an interesting change of tack

This latest Zvezda release is a really interesting topic. HSM Dreadnought - the famous battleship from WWI and the Battle of Jutland.

"HMS Dreadnought was a battleship of the British Royal Navy that revolutionised naval power. Her entry into service in 1906 represented such a marked advance in naval technology that her name came to be associated with an entire generation of battleships, the "dreadnoughts", as well as the class of ships named after her, while the generation of ships she made obsolete became known as "pre-dreadnoughts". She was the sixth ship of that name in the Royal Navy."
(quoted from Wikipedia)
