How large is this ship compared to the rest of the fleet? Because to my understanding, this was supposed to be able to hold at least 4 frigates in drydock.

Ours is a little bigger than canon. Each bay on the side holds a cruiser.

I'd hate to be a stick in the terminology mud, but if it's outside the repair craft, then it is wetdock. Dry dock involves being inside.

Regardless, I love the model. I couldn't get it out of my head that the Cradle was just a giant cube... lol

If you are going to get into terminology then you shouldn't be using dry-dock and wet-dock, as neither make sense in space being that there is no water. Although as far as I know there is no space version of the terminology...you could use air-dock and space-dock? air-dock being inside as they wouldn't need to worry about venting any air while repairing, space-dock being outside, in space.

The point of that, is that in almost every space related thing, there is a space navy. Everything is related to a navy, but in space.

So one would think that since all of the terms carry over, this one would as well. Also, I think they use the terms in 'Fall of Reach'... I may be wrong on that though.

You were right but no one cares because they think drydock sounds cooler. Life explained.

I remember reading about this massive thing in The Fall Of Reach. It's really similar to what I imagined it to be, being blasted by a wall of plasma torpedoes. So sad. :(

Here's a few renders about the Cradle, the UNSC's mobile repair station. It's one of the most useful ships to have in a fleet, thanks to the suite of passive and activated repair buffs. It is, however, totally unarmed.

Also, about last night:
There were obviously some problems getting the beta out and with only the intended content being released. That being said, if you can be patient and let us sort out a stable UNSC beta, it WILL be available this weekend. You have my apologies, guys. No one wants this damn thing out more than I do.
