Does anyone have the gif where it compares a Star Wars Star Destroyer or something with a Warhammer 40K ship?

>> No.12900155

I kinda want to see this now.

Bump because this is relevant to my interests.

Is that top one a Davion I warship?

>> No.12900704

It's definitely a warship of some Battletech variety, but I don't know which one.

>> No.12900730

Such a bad gif.
Its comparing apples to oranges.
Oh heres a smallish sized Star Wars ship.
Lets put it up against the largest 40K ship.
Wow look at that, its smaller.

Of course if you put a super star destroyer in there it would be about the same size as the 40K ship, and if you put the eclipse in there, it would make the 40K look small.
Thats not even getting into the World devastators or the Death stars or Centerpoint station etc.

>> No.12900746

I assume you have a source for that size? Because for a grimdark universe, kilometer-tall windows seem a bit out of place.

>> No.12900773
File: 179 KB, 830x1276, bloodquestshipgh3.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

I won't argue about the Death Stars or Centerpoint, but 40k does have some pretty big shit.

>> No.12900810

Yeah, but they're horribly inefficient wastes of space. Slaves running on giant treadmills to power the lights. Giant rooms where slaves manually reload the guns by pulling on ropes. Slaves hiding under floors or inside walls to "automatically" open doors when officers approach. This doesn't even count the vast "lost decks" where entire tribal civilizations rise and fall.

Warhammer40k imperial ships are 99.9% waste space that could be removed without any loss of functionality.

>> No.12900833


The maximum length for a battleship appears to be about 8 kilometers. Assuming the ship is 4 times as long as it is tall, that gives a height of 2 kilometers. A Victory I-Class SD has a height of 289 meters, which makes it about 7 times shorter. I really don't think the gif portrays proper scale at all.

>> No.12900857

Those decks are what's called "ablative armor"

>> No.12900859


Then it couldn't ram other ships as well

>> No.12900887

The Imperial II-Class SD has a crew of 37,000. What are all those men needed for?

>> No.12900909

A good chunk of it is Stormtroopers for boarding action and general deployment, along with the infrastructure to keep them alive (repairmen for life support, chefs, etc.), and then the people who fire and maintain the turbolasers, manage the armory, the brig, janitorial staff, etc., etc. I'm willing to bet that 37,000 includes droids.

>> No.12901435


Janitorial staff = all enlisted crewmen

>> No.12901497

Okay, but take enough people to do everything I said and multiply it by three for eight-hour shifts. Or 2.5, depending on how many droids you think are in the crew.

File: 81 KB, 704x416, 1288981638848.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

incorrect, sir. the 37,000 does not include troops, who are counted separately and number somewhere around 2,000. that being said, those personnel are mostly engineering crew, mechanics, comm techs, pilots, and other assorted individuals that keep the ship running. And there are far fewer droids than one would imagine on an I-2, mostly repair droids/astromechs who assist the mechanics, and a few M-3P0 units.

the Executor was 9 km long, so yeah about the same size. firepower wise... the 40k ships are screwed. star wars is orders of magnitude above 40k when it comes to lethality... i'd take a venator-clss star destroyer againt damn near anything in40k... or maybe an Acclamator-2

Yeah I know what your talking about, I found the gif on a gamespot forum but I reformatted my comp so the image is lost to me. I'll try to find it again because I kind want to see it again.

40k ships have caused 'petals of flame the size of continents' during orbital bombardment.

First Eisonhorn book, IIRC.

That puts them in pretty much the same league as Star Wars, even if you take the numbers in the Episode 2 ICS book.

If you go by on-screen evidence, this actually leaves Star Wars pretty much fucked.

>> No.12901599

The Executor's original specs stated 8km. However, its measurements compared to the other Star Destroyers in the movies brought it up to 18km, which is now the official statement of length.

>> No.12901603

the equivalent to that would be the Acclamtor-2, which, by itself, razed planets in a matter of hours. and it's 2/3 the size of an imperial-2 class.

>> No.12901604

The unbelievably shitty guidance system on grimdarkspessboat turrets, though, really fucks things up for the imperium. They have mobs of morons pushing and pulling the guns into position. Great for orbital bombardment... and really embarrassing in ship to ship fights.


>> No.12901610

The Grand Army of the Republic was, by SW standards, a large army and it consisted of 3 million clones. That includes clones serving aboard ships.

Clone troopers only out number space marines 3 to 1 in total, and not even that much on the ground.

>> No.12901614

If you go by the prequel movies, the Republic isn't a whole lot better. They do the whole "pull alongside for a broadside" thing too.

Yeah, it's sort of a ret-con, but here's how the Executor appeared in the movies. Remember, the Imperial Star Destroyers are known to be 1.6 km.
