If not the Defiant I at least would wish for the Battle cruiser pattern that has the macro's exchanged for lance batteries to make it a true fleet support vessel. I gave up dreaming about Jovian class because I have read in your ship profiles that only one of it exists...
You mean Armageddon? Well she's most common in Battlefleet Armageddon, (hence the name) as it was their idea to convert their wrecked Lunars into BCs... kind of rare, but not unheard of, in other fleet formations.
As for the Jovian, there are a handful with various Battlefleets. But that's because production only started fairly recently in the lore timeline, for the longest time there was only one.
During the Gothic War there wasn't even one of them in existence. Jovian was a Mars Class at this time serving with Battlefleet Gothic before being transferred to Battlefleet Baka after the Gothic War, where she got OMNOMNOMed to death by nids and rebuilt as her own class of BC.

Don't take me wrong, Dictator is nice, I LOVE Lord Solar Macharius, and the fluff of it, but I don't like it in this game as much (not saying its bad, I use it a lot, but I would prefer another tool... like... escort carrier Defiant >.< hahahah)
Well, like I said, it doesn't make much sense to not have Defiant in a Battlefleet Gothic line-up. Surprised she isn't here already, but I guess they just never got around to modelling her or they felt giving one faction three CL choices was too much... Enforcer was also used in front-line combat during the Gothic War (although that was out of a desperate need for more carrier than anything).
I'm most hyped for the Defender CL (basically a Dauntless Mk I with dorsal light-lance turrets).
