I dont know either but I remember one of the earlier missions in wc2 where you had to drop of mail to a planet and you meet downtown and at the nav between the concordia and the planet there are a lot of shipsWC2 definitely did not have more ships. @-danr- mentioned that there's a limit of ten ships per navpoint in WC3. Well, I don't recall if WC2 had any sort of limit of ships per navpoint, but it had a limit of 16 ships per mission. Of those, only 10-12 were generally usable - you had to take into consideration the player, his wingman, the Concordia, her escort destroyer, and sometimes a wing of fighters on patrol around the Concordia. So, you couldn't possibly dream about big battles. The most you would have is a couple of capships and about four enemy fighters.
