War vessels can be up to 8 kilometers from front to stern and dislodge billions of tons. Since they speak to such a tremendous consumption of assets and require a genuinely propelled specialized base, these are commonly built just in the biggest shipyards over the major Adeptus Mechanicus Forge Worlds.
