Another comparison… this time with more ships

Last time, I did a size comparison with a map of ships that had already been created.  I just added the Nighthawk from Rocket Fox.  Now, I’ve taken the liberty of adding the Barrow’s Revenge, the Barrow class cargo cruiser (which the Revenge originally was), the Maverick fighter craft and the Nighthawk fighter craft.

Eventually I’ll add in the Lionid’s Pride, the Pirate’s Victory, RVA Tritan, the IPF Osprey, the IPF Kestrel, and the IPF Tiger’s Pride.  The Tritan and the Pride are the largest ships in the grouping, quite possibly as long as the Sovereign class starship at 600 meters.

And just because, here’s the Rocket Fox ships on their own.

A size comparison

Just how big is the Nighthawk class fighter from Rocket Fox?  I found a handy chart to help and added said fighter class into the mix.  This comparison chart contains everything from the U.S.S. Enterprise E from Star Trek to the Drakh Hordes fighters of Babylon 5 to the Firefly class transport ship called Serenity and the International Space Station.

When compared, the RVA Nighthawk (Registry NH-001) is about the size of a Jem’Hadar fighter craft which is 95 meters in length.  The Nighthawk clocks in at 85 meters in length.  I might add other ships, like the Lionid’s Pride or the Barrow’s Revenge in time.  For now, here’s the chart.
