Wrong halo has at least 92 fleets and that equals roughly10000 ships way more than mass effect tiny fleets. You cant disprove it i did the math
Alright,I saw that people closed the "Halo vs Mass Effect" thread,so I'm opening this new one.No. Their fleets are smaller than the SA's prior to the Reaper War as just one fleet (they had 8 actual fleets total with 63 scout fleets) had thousands of warships alone. In comparison the UNSC has 2000-3000 warships total. Add the Turians, Asari, Geth, and Quarians who all have bigger fleet/s is just overkill. Additionally the UNSC's farthest colony is only 12 lys away from Earth. The Citadel Council meanwhile has colonies all over the galaxy with trillions of people vs the mid double digit billions the UNSC has at their peak. This is the ME's verse fight to lose.
Can the UNSC with it's full might defeat all races from the Mass Effect Universe (except the Reapers)?
-Yoink-. We know that the UNSC had 16 fleets (Ghost of Onyx) with the largest of them numbering only 212 ships (50 supports and 162 warships that made up Cole's fleet at his last stand in Evolutions). The second largest fleet was Reach's after they pulled all their fleets back when they abandoned the Outer Colonies to fortify the Inner Colonies and it only had around 150 ships. Their own homeworld meanwhile only had 75 ships defending it. When we look at Halo Evolutions which puts Cole's fleet of 40 ships as the largest fleet in UNSC history prior to the war, that tells us that their fleets are/were pathetically small. Then looking at Thel's fleet's kill count of 120 ships which was the result of them destroying multiply UNSC fleets reinforces this.
And on top of all of that, we're told the total number of UNSC ships had prior to the war in Halo Reach.

[Minutes, working session, Committee of Minds for Security]
[^] Directly preceding their assault on the colony world of Biko, the Covenant transmitted a message to its surface. Within this message was a bold claim: 'your world will burn until its surface is but glass' – a claim that clearly indicates the Covenant leadership believes they possess the power to literally reduce a planet’s surface to a molten state. [^]
[^] Assuming they have the wherewithal to back-up such a claim, the dangers to our creators are obvious.
The implications for their own internal politics are also instructive e.g., what effect might the Covenant leadership's assertion have on any client species in their coalition? We aren't the only beings that would be terrified by the idea of absolute destruction of a planet's surface – nor would we be the only ones to realize the futility of attempting to resist a force that has such power at its disposal. [^]
[^] Moving forward, this Committee recommends the formal adoption of the descriptor 'glassing' to portray the aftermath of planetary assault by the Covenant. It is the opinion of this Committee that this term will capitalize on the three weaknesses evident in the majority of our creators: passive curiosity, absence of a solid methodological foundation, and the inability to grasp even simple phenomena when applied on a planetary scale. [^]
[^] In short: 'glassing' will magnify the horror of the Covenant’s capabilities. And as such, this Committee believes targeted dissemination of this terminology will help galvanize our creators in their current struggle. [^]
[^] Importantly, the Covenant does not possess the capacity to accomplish 'glassing' on a global scale and wage a multisystem war simultaneously. This is reinforced by hard data regarding their capabilities revealed during fleet engagements with the UNSC. A single Covenant capital ship (CCS-class) is capable of 'glassing' approximately one acre of a planet's surface after an average of fifteen seconds of sustained fire.
Understandably this action takes considerably less time when applied to open desert, and considerably longer when applied to deep ocean (> 1.8 km) [^]
[^] Earth, one of the smaller planets inhabited by our creators, has one hundred and thirty billion acres of surface area. Thus, assuming the Covenant possesses a number of ships equal to that of the UNSC, and assuming that all of those ships are capable of generating and discharging the required power non-stop for the duration of the process, it would necessitate the combined efforts of their ships in toto for a minimum of 30.3801 years to 'glass' the entire surface of Earth.
Myriad other variables which were not applied to this equation suggest this number would be far greater. [^]
[^] Of course, dissemination of this analysis to our creators would undermine the utility of 'glassing' as a galvanizing concept, and should be suppressed. [^]"
The math that tells us their ship numbers based directly off the stated information above,
--------------------------- = 4 acres/min
60 min/hour * 4 acres/min = 240 acres/hour
24 hours/day * 240 acres/hour = 5760 acres/day
5760 acres /day * 365 days/year = 2,102,400 acres/year
---------------------------------- = 61,834.09 years for one ship
----------------------------- = 2035.35 ships
So about 2035 ships."
But that's assuming the Covenant are 100% efficient which we know they're not (First Strike) so that puts the figure between 2000 and 3000 warships (frigates and up).
So your supposed calc is complete BS as Halo canon says it is because nothing supports it, at all.
Meanwhile we have direct confirmation that a single SA fleet, and the SA have the smallest fleets in ME, numbers in the thousands.
And said fleet isn't even the largest as it was stated to be the 4th fleet in the Codex while the 1st fleet was stated to be the largest.
