Summary

The Abaddon (or "'Baddon") is a Tech 1 Amarr battleship known for its strong potential armor buffer tank. It has high base hitpoints, a bonus to armor damage resistance, and seven low slots for armor tanking modules. Its other bonus boosts the damage of large energy turrets which gives it not only more DPS, but also more volley damage (or "alpha strike").

These two qualities, a strong armor buffer and high volley damage, make the Abaddon popular for large nullsec fights which favor ships with a lot of volley and buffer tank. In such a context, Abaddons have also been used with artillery turrets despite its energy turret bonus. In large battles, it is usually supported by Force Auxiliaries, and so its low speed (even for a battleship) doesn’t matter that much.

Notes

"Abaddon" comes from a Hebrew word meaning a place associated with destruction or with the dead. In the Greek text of Revelation 9:11 the Hebrew word is used to name a figure associated with destruction who has been variously interpreted as an angel, a fallen angel, another term for Satan, or the Antichrist.
