I don't know. UNSC forces are able to, on occasion, hold their own against the Covenant. And this is without any type of void shielding, which Imperials have. Remember too, Imperial admirals have been doing this for centuries. That's experiance not even the best Covenant pilot can match.

Plus, of course...you have Space Marines. They'd board the shit out of a Covenant vessel and tear them a new one.

The UNSC is only ever able to hold their own when they out number the covenant by a substantial margin or the captain performs some brilliant action.... Or both. Covenant basically paint space red with UNSC fleets.

At 27 kilometers in length, yeah supercarriers are indeed bigger than any Imperial battleship. Assault carriers, on the other hand, are evenly matched with regular Imperial cruisers. (Both coming in at 5 kilometers in length.)

Though I kind of have a hard time believing supercarriers are 27 kilometers long; thats at least 17 miles. Half of that feels believable, but not the current claim.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

This is an excellent premise, do we have to make it another halo vs 40k thread?

For mine, whilst it wouldn't improve the movie, i'd laugh my tits off if a squad of marines jumped out at the end of E.T and shot him to high heaven.

PURGE THE XENOS!!

Well, considering corvettes can dock inside of the things I could see it being that large.

covi corvette.

However, in general I would think the ships are about the same size or imperial vessels would be larger on average.

On a side note, I wonder how a covi energy projector would stack up against lances..... probably more effective. Oh well, for a different thread I suppose.

It won't, just saying that if the imperial fleet jumped in and went up against the second fleet of homogenous clarity it would be decimated.

the inclusion of space marine in any game/movie improves it to almost infinite levels...when the space marine dies a slow painful death after doing sweet bugger all.

Gotta agree with Stella here. Personally I'd love some fluff where Space Marines get in sent in, only for some IG kill team to have go and rescue them, or better yet Sisters and IG, then they can have a laugh afterwards at the expense of the Marines.
