Palabras similares a "Battleship" y sus diferencias

Q: ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre battleship y warship ?
A: My understanding of the words is that a battleship is specifically for battle, e.g. a destroyer, but a warship may also include ships used for war where the main role is not fighting. E.g. an aircraft carrier.

The dictionary definition I found for battleship is even more specific than I was thinking.

a heavy warship of a type built chiefly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with extensive armour protection and large-calibre guns.
