Naw - it certainly isn't to scale... but definitely still a large ship!

The Idris currently sits at 247 meters long, the Bengal is over 1100 meters long....scale might not be as off as you think.

I still don't see how they plan to render a carrier or 2 in the same space. The thing looks like it would take the entire grid.

taken from ATV
"the Idris can just fit inside the Bengal hangar but can not land"
"there are 90+ turrets/missile launchers on the Bengal one of the turrets is the size of an Idris"

not exact quotes as done by memory

I have watch lots of father ted episodes and this is a case of large and small and not near and far

So I'm reading all this about the size and operational needs of these vessels and ppl touch on those requirements but never expand upon these instead everyone seems fixated and awestruck over the size. While yes the size of these capital ships is important and a bit intimidating I think brass tacks wise we should be planning now for the future operation of these vessels we may need to sub a whole guild just to man all these, or form a kgh marine force

based on the interest we've seen in this game, once it ACTUALLY releases in full form i think we wont have much issue manning these large ships. I'm sure William and the PD crew would be down to join us on this title as well.

That may be overly optimistic William and PD are great friends but not a large clan by any means, even kgb might not be sizeable enough for something on this scale. However many of us who have been around the block do know other clans. I just hope that Zhou and Jet have their knee pads ready if need be

hah true story, i suppose i'm not used to playing games that literally require huge numbers to even function. normally numbers are more of an added bonus and make things easier. It seems like some of these large ships will require dedicated "star fleet" type gameplay. It's so exciting!
