For what reasons don’t we use battleships anymore? Why did they fade away after ww2?
Battleships are actually still used very frequently in warfare. They are used for reconnoissance, launching points for missions, to show strength, and to launch missiles. However, there have not been many battleship vs. battleship naval battles since World War II, as most conflicts have been between formal and informal fighting forces. For example, the destroyer from which Tomahawk missiles were launched against Syrian Army targets in the summer of 2017 would be classified as a battleship.
