I an currently in work re-readinf Truth and Shadows the MWDA novel and on page 270 it states that Jack Farrell's Jupiter is thirty meters tall (that is almost a 100 feet tall!). I think the thing does look huge even for a hundred tonner but i surely can't be that big? Do we have any other references that contradict this? --Dmon 01:07, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

I think this is just a translation error. From 30 feet to 30 meters. In the old german novels Mechs were repeatedly described as being 30 meters tall, while the english books said 30 feet.Harry 10:47, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, the Omegas from JFR were only 18 meters and THOSE were 150 tons. ClanWolverine101 13:47, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
