Good stuff LOAF, but most if not all of this is WCP related, I would like to see some WC3-2-1 stuff as well, not be be making you that much more work <G>

Err... the WC3-2-1 stuff is all stated in the manuals... most of the WCP stats *aren't* (G) But I'll make a list for you...

Well, thanks a lot LOAF.
But I find some lenghts very hard to believe: a Skate being larger than any Confed fighter? Or the Lamprey? THE REMORA?
That is all very hard to believe. But if they are the official stats, we have to accept them.

Arrgh, got me! :( Of course I meant longer than any Confed fighter newly introduced in WCP. Or to put it simply: A Skate/Lamprey/REMORA/Moray longer than a Vampire or Wasp with attached booster or a Panther or a Tigershark etc...

I have no problem that WCP confed fighters are small. I have a problem that the bug ships are so large! I never had the impression that a REMORA (sorry, I just find it so unbelievable) is larger than a Vampire!

The *actual* reason for all this is that the people who did the Confed design doc listed the lengths in feet, and the bugs in meters -- and then somebody converted feet to meters when they put the Confed data in the Ship Viewer.

Thats just confusing. why did they do it that way?

Well, feet makes more *sense* for the ships lengths... in the video sequences on the flight deck in WC3/4 the ships do not appear to be as large as the manuals claim -- still, meters was the original standard...

Compared to WC1/2 the scale in WC3+ (especially in WCP) was greatly improved. :)
But anyway the Skate/Lamprey/REMORA should be quite a lot shorter. I always thought they were about 7-10m.
