One hell of a "clean" break for a nuke going off internally.

The battlestar being cut in half is not the problem - it's the pods. There is no way the pods can snap in half so cleanly, and stay attached to the battlestar halves so perfectly.

Honestly i like the design of the valk.  It looks like a slick ship, smaller and able to slip in and out of battle maybe.  Maybe it's a scout ship designed to patrol the armistace line.  Bigger is not always better when your trying not to be seen :biggrin1:

Well, I'd point out that all these assumptions of size are not smart until we've seen it compared to something of known size. Although granted the flight pods seem to be similar in size to Galactica's, perhaps smaller, assumption is the mother of all ****ups.

Missile -> Stealthstar comparison
Missile -> Valkyrie comparison

= Size of Valkyrie.

Haven't tried it. I have missions to work on but someone else might want to :)

what kara said is how i was judging the size. the missile wasnt too much larger then the stealthstar, was about the same as a missile and fighter plane, and in comparison the the valk, the missile makes it look pretty small to me.

We never did actually get a good look at the missile in comparison to the Valk though, only its exhaust trail.

well in the first shots they posted in this thread, we can see the missile being fired from the valk, we see the trail, and the head for at least those first 2 shots. granted they arent great shots but we can see roughly the size of the missile

Assuming the guns are the same caliber as Pegasus and Galactica, (they might not be, its possible both Peggy and Galactica had been refitted with a newer heavy weapons system in between the Valkyrie incident and the Holocaust)  The guns alone suggest that Valkyrie is at least 3/4ths the size of Galactica if not smaller.  Huge cuts have to be taken out of the alligator head to allow for what looks like only two turrets on each side.  Galactica has 8 heavy weapons emplacements mounted in the mouth of the alligator head alone.

She has guns mounted on the flight pods...

And as for her gun size, I see them as smaller... I see the Peggy/Galactica
mounting the equivilant of 16inchers while the Valk would have like 10-12 inchers with maybe a greater ROF.

Battleship/star scale guns but not as powerful.

I think the Valk kinda looks like the Cockren Warp Ship.

If anyone is wondering she is BSG-41.
