Exact size? I have no idea. I have seen references to it being the size of an aircraft carrier(length wise of course), but I KNOW it's larger than that.

Let's see... I'm going to try and compare the sizes of the Arkbird, XB-0, and the Gliepnier(sp). Maybe I can get something from that...

My estimate right now? Half a football field.

That's equal to 50 yards. I'm sure it's longer than that.

By looking at it and comparing to a F-15 or F-14. I give it at least a good 2-3 football fields long or maybe even 2.5 carriers long.

200-300 yards? That's how far I can throw my boomerang! :rolleyes: Maybe 500 yards, like an overpowered driver shot.

I figured it out! After my third try :lol: , in the FALKEN, at the end of arkbird part 2, when the arkbird was shooting it's last super-boost, it was almost perfectly 90 degrees up almost. I went to 15 altitude, went up under the arkbird, when I got to the arkbird I started adding, then I got to the end. i added it up, and...

That's a pretty good size ship. Roughly 500 ft. shorter than Gaiuss Tower. But if it's 2500 ft, then that is equal to 833.3 yrds, or a little more than 8 football fields.

I'll guess that it is around 300-350 yards long...though this is a really tricky question... :P

The Arkbird I made for FSX was about 136 meters (446.2 feet) long, 60 meters (196 feet) wide and had 11 meters (36 feet) of height. See it here (I guess you can get an idea of the size):

I woulda guessed around 145m & 65m wide, height was 11.5m, but that was my estimate from flyin' over it so much & comparing it to other things I flew over.

B) the EXACT length of the arkbird is... well... 2500 feet. :ph34r:

Dax, did you not see the spoiler? The above is that.

Enterprise-E was only 700m...
