Some people request me that i do a comparison of my concepts and add the length for each ship. For that, i can use the models of Alliance Cruiser and Normandy SR2 from ME3, but when i search the size of those ships, only exist fan references. For example, i found for the SR2 the size of: 216 mts, 195 mts and 160 mts.
The first step, use those references and compare with the cruiser:
The cruiser is near of 3,61 times the SR2 Normandy and with that, if i use 216 mts for the normandy Sr2, the cruiser would have near of 779 mts (702 mts without front antenna).
But yesterday, when i test some ships, i discover something that change all the estimates that i did: the shuttle size
I had to reinstall ME3 and i went to the cargo bay and see this:
The cargo bay is big, and have space for 2 shuttles and a big corridor in the center, but the shuttles are big too.
With that, i want to know the size of the shuttle, for that, i did this comparison:
The shuttle is near of 8,3 Shepard of long (), but i don't know the size of Shepard, for that:
If Shepard had 1,9 mts, the shuttle is 15,77 mts.
If Shepard had 1,85 mts, the shuttle is 15,36 mts.
If Shepard had 1,8 mts, the shuttle is 14,94 mts.
If Shepard had 1,75 mts, the shuttle is 14,53 mts.
Then, i scale the shuttle to a size where the Sr2 Bay can carry 2 Shuttles:
And i obtain that the Normandy is near of 27,7 time the size of Shuttle, and if i multiply with the size that obtain for the shuttle, i obtain a size between 402 to 436 mts for the Normandy -.- that is totally different to the references, and with this, the cruiser had a size upon the 1450 mts (more that the dreadnought references)
I did the reverse process, and take the size of 216 mts for SR2, the SR2 must be have a size between 13,7 to 14,9 time the size of shuttle
Here a comparison between the 2 shuttle sizes adn the cargo bay model:
If you notice, the shuttle in the last calculation (13,7 time or 14,9) can't enter in the bay, and the shuttle with the size of the first calculation, enter in the bay, but equal, exceed a little the space for shuttle, for that, the normandy could be more big.
(with a other size of shuttle, that adapt to the shuttle space in the bay, give me that the normandy is 31,6 time that shuttle and give me a size for normandy SR2 between 458 to 498 mts, but depend of the Shepard Size)
What do you think? i'm comfused
(i did the calculation in excel, but here i put approximate values)
