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 the sizes dont match sometimes even in the games and 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

Update 1:
- Changed Leviathan from Reaper size to 450 m height

Update 5: (November 28, 2014)
- Resize the Destiny Ascension and make her smaller to a more realistic size in relation to the other dreadnoughts.
- Make Harbinger 2 km tall as like the other capital Reapers. After month of research, there is no single hint he is taller.


I have made some more Mass Effect Size Comparison charts:

I never get tired of looking at these.

Me too. I correct some sizes in my older works.

something I'd like to point out is that in ME3, Ide says that the Geth Dreadnought is thirty percent longer than an alliance Dreadnought; so it should be about 1300 meters long.

Yep, i know. I correct all sizes i made in my newest size comparison (Ultimate Mass Effect Starship Size Comparison) in my older works. But it need some time. Ship for ship.

No idea why you think Kwunu is smaller than Kilimanjaro-class dreadnoughts. They say 'bout Kwunu as if she were one of the strongest dreadnoughts in the galaxy and they say nothing like that about Kilimanjaro.
Euderion Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Please do not compare strength with size. Yes, the Kwunu is a hell of a Dreadnought because of the multiple Thanix weapons. But it is still a Turian Design which are usually slightly smaller than there pendants from the Alliance. So i made the Kwunu nearly the size of a regular Turian Dreadnought.

I know there's a difference between size and strength. But we don't have any other evidence of sizes to be based on. And besides, it's the volus who built this ship so Kwunu might not fit turian size standards.

I'm sorry, you did a great job, but I just don't see Kwunu that small.

Ok, no prob. Loving to discuss these things :-)

I did A similar calculation with in game screenshots of the dlc and did the height comparison in accordance with the pixel amount  size difference and came out With between 250 and 300m but that using ft which might have thrown me off seeing tin one of the main screen shots is showing little over 1/3  of leviathans body did the measurements again and still came out with a little over 350m thats still 100m short of what it shows here. and a screen shot perfect to tell Harbinger is much larger than an average reaper is when he and several other reapers break off from the battle with sword and begin heading towards london his size is much more of a difference from any of the others with him

Can you give me a screenshot for that Harbinger scene, please? Looking for Harbi in that scene, but i only see him on earth. He is not seen in the space scenes. Example is here:… at timecode 2:54. The reaper ships heading to earth to protect the reaper beam. But Harbi is not there. Just normal Sovereign class Reapers and Destroyer Reapers.
