Mass Effect 2, Ship Comparison by Troodon80 Mass Effect 2, Ship Comparison by Troodon80
Mass Effect 2, Ship Comparison #2.

Compares the height of male Shepard (assumed to be approximately 6'2", same as Vanderloo).

Going from the top to bottom:
  1. Harbinger (assumed to be approximately 2km long, since it is mentioned that Harbinger is one of the oldest and largest of the Reapers).
  2. Collector Ship.
  3. Turian Cruiser/Frigate (Frigate is assumed to be approximately half size).
  4. Human Cruiser/Dreadnought (Dreadnought is assumed to be approximately 1.4x larger).
  5. Normandy SR2.
  6. Normandy SR1.
  7. Human Freighter.
  8. Geth Cruiser.
  9. Geth Transport.

The first comparison can be found here, this includes Shepard's height, too.

These are approximate sizes and should not be taken as absolute fact.

Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect Ships and Vehicles BioWare/EA.

You are free to use this reference however you wish. You can also download the full size version for a better quality image.

My full list of references can be found here.

You know the average Reaper, like Sovereign were assumed to be two kilometers long? Harbinger is supposed to be about three or four.

Yeah; on average Reapers were supposed to be two kilometers. You're right. Since Sovereign and Sovereign classes were said to be two kilometers on average. That'd make Harbinger at least three to four kilometers.

I'm going on a hunch here, I assume both of those items are from Halo? The UNSC Infinity is 3.5km, roughly 1.5km longer than Harbinger at 2km. The Covenant Assault Carrier is 5.35km, roughly 3.35km larger than Harbinger. So both of those are bigger than anything on this graph, yes.

Regular Reapers are two kilometres, Harbinger is Harbinger is probably about three or four.

while I like this, I have serious doubts about its accuracy!

it also includes a ship that . . . to my knowledge was only in the comics

Troodon80 Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012
It isn't accurate. I said previously that I would be updating it (and the other two).

If you're talking about the third from the bottom, it appears at the end of the game if you choose to keep the Collector base, but it doesn't have any textures (as seen here). The plan is to size up all the possible ships and vehicles that I can find. Even if they don't necessarily appear in the game to any great extent :).

Gotta nitpick here.

Harbinger is probably just over 2 KM, and an Alliance dreadnought is about 800 to 900 meters long. Thus, I think your scales for the Turian and Alliance cruisers are wrong. They should be about 500 m long, i.e. roughly 1/4 of Harbinger's length. Sovereign dwarfed the Normandy SR-1.

I knew the scales were off. I was planning to update this at some point. But didn't know the exact measurements. I can work with some of these measurements, thanks :).

RiefenstahlAzure Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012
It seems that in cutscenes, scales are all over the place. I remember in ME1 where in once scene, the Normandy is about as large as a cruiser, and in a scene right after, the Normandy looked like a mosquito compared to the said cruiser. I only took the info from the lore and codex, which stated that Alliance dreads are about 800 to 900 meters long. ME cutscenes don't reflect the codex/lore very well. Damn cinematics...

how big is the SR2 ?

Troodon80 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2012
Roughly twice the mass of the original Normandy. The original Normandy was only a stealth frigate, so it's nowhere near as large as a cruiser. Unfortunately, no actual measurements are given.

there is no way the normandy is that big compared to reaper or the collector ship , in mass effect 2 the SR2 was tiny next to the collector cruiser in me 2

I will be redoing these once I get more models referenced (and I will be putting in the names and sizes), but right now these are only approximates - in no way representative of the actual sizes, since they can differ wildly. As I said in the description, people should not take them as absolute fact.

Actually, the Sovereign-class is mentioned at being 2km long, Harbinger is said to be the oldest and largest, so, much bigger than 2km.

So the capital Reaper ships are as big as the Collector ships? I had no idea ...

Bitchin'. Though I'd like to point this out from the wiki: [link]
Not sure if it's accurate either.

Also, in a later version, perhaps include the freighter, refuelling ship ("Solar Array"), assorted cars (flatbed, ET3 mining vehicle), Oculus, M-080, Grizzly, Mantis, Human fighter, Destiny Ascension, Purgatory (if the model exists in-game), and the Shadow Broker's ship. As well as the ships type (probably in the Mass Effect font) written next to it, and it's approximate length?

:icontroodon80:
Troodon80 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012
It's all guess work, unfortunately. It's doubtful any two comparisons would be the same since quite a few of the ships are scaled in-game to whatever is needed (cinematics, pre-rendered scenes, etc.). I don't think there are many exact measurements of the ships other than the Citadel, and an approximate for Sovereign and Harbinger. If there is, I would be grateful if you could give me a link to where.

Also, any luck/plans to extract from ME3? Know how one would go about that...? (I'm trying to get some models for costuming purposes)

Thanks, that might help quite a bit :).

As of right now there is little to no support for extracting ME3 models.
