Concept art of an Iron Horde ship.

Dreadnaughts,[1][2] also known as juggernauts[3] or drudgeboats,[4] are large armored battleships[5] equipped with heavy cannons in the employ of the Iron Horde.

The dreadnaughts as well as the Iron Docks were designed by Solog Roark, an engineering prodigy.[6] After his defection, carriers looking very similar to modified dreadnaughts started appearing in the Alliance and Horde fleets of Draenor, indicating that the shipwright also had a hand in creating their design.

The Blackrock Foundry had a shipyard where the dreadnaughts were forged and assembled before being sent to the Iron Docks.[7] Their gigantic plates were hammered out by Kromog.[8] During the Iron Horde attack on Karabor, dreadnaughts looted or sank most of the draenei eastern fleet.[2]

Notable

Several Iron Horde battleships appear as opponents during naval Garrison Missions but are not dreadnaughts despite the latter being also identified as battleships.[5]
