Cargo capacity 1 million tons. Full-load mass of 5 million tons each. Empire will have about ships of that size and some larger.
It will have 50, medium cargo ships with cargo capacity of 20, tons, and hundreds of thousands of smaller vessels. Great hub-route stations will have population in the millions. Navy battlecruisers will be 1 km long, full-load mass of 3 million tons.
Empire will have battlecruisers in the fleet. It will have thousands of cruisers with a full-load mass oftons. Galactic Empireworlds with average population of few billion each.
