Mass Effect Starship Size Chart Comparison by Euderion Mass Effect Starship Size Chart Comparison by Euderion
This is a first try for a size comparison of the starships from the Mass Effect Universe.
To a large extent the size are purely estimates, as there are virtually no official data.
I use some of the game models and there ingame model size as well as screenshots from the cinematics to compare the ships.
But unfortunately contradict the sizes set at several even in the cinematics.

Ships rendered in 3d Max 10
I use some reference pictures from :icontroodon80:

The Reaper sizes are given in height. Its a better size indication.

Mass Effect is (c) by Bioware & EA

I like the picture, but the size of the Reapers are wrong. It has been stated in the first Mass Effect that "Soverign" was the largest ship in the Galaxy(at the time), so wouldn't that mean the the Destiny Ascension would be smaller as well as the Live ship?
Euderion Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The Reaper sizes are right. The codex entry says there are 2 kilometer in size.
The Destiny Ascension is a chapter for herself, what most caused difficulties. I use the cinematic scene from ME1 when the Normandy SR1 flew past the Ascension. Its the only time we see another ship in the direct near of the Asari flagship.

I know that
does not fit to what was said in the game, that Sovereign is the biggest ship. But this is a general problem of the Mass Effect games. The codex entries and the dialogs between the characters often doesnt match to the cinematic scenes.

How do we know Harbinger is 2170 meters tall? By the game files?
Euderion Featured By Owner May 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Actually, we have no evidence on the size of Harbinger. I myself think Harbinger is like the other Reaper 2 km in size. But many here on dA have protested against it and thought I should make it bigger than the other Reaper, as it was called in the game several times, he is the largest and oldest of the Reaper.
