Size comparation with Overlord[edit]

Assuming the Mammoths diameter is actually 277m, its internal volume is more than 10Million cubic meter. Assuming the Overlord's height is acrually 99m as given in the Overlordarticte, its internal volume would be only little about 500.000 cubic meters if the Overlord would be a sphere, making the mammoth not 5 times bigger as given in this article but 20times bigger than the Overlord. Keeping in mind, that the Overloard is not a perfect sphere, the factor is even much worse.

The in-universe nature of Sarna's BTW is that we repeat (not create) information obtained through official sources. If the in-universe nature of the Mammoth is that it is 5x the size of something else, then that is what is repeated here. If you can challenge that with a source (especially one that takes precedence over the source used here), then the article itself is a fine place to do that (especially in a ==Notes== secttion). However, if its a real world physics violation (and trust me, the Mammoth is far from the only one employing what we call 'FASA Fhysics'), then this discussion page is really the only suitable place to, well, discuss it and even then, it should be restricted to how to improve the article within the strictures set for this site. Frustrating, I'm sure, but we have to limit the scope of articles somewhere, and in-universe seems appropriate. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 22:11, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

I also have to question the 2808 introduction date. SLSB lists it as prototyped 150 years prior to that, and released for general sale almost immediately thereafter. What is the source for the 2808 date?— The preceding unsigned comment was provided by Ecs05norway (talkcontribs) .

I've just checked, and Technical Readout: 3057 (Revised) lists an introduction date of 2808 for the Mammoth - page 64 refers.BrokenMnemonic (talk) 10:46, 5 July 2013 (PDT)
The Master Unit List says that there was indeed an early model introduced in 2658. The standard variant was introduced in 2808. Harry (talk) 02:53, 6 July 2013 (PDT)
