135x40 = 5400 square kilometers.
5400kmsq = 2085misq
2085x27012 = 56320020
Now, you might say that the Voth Ship isn't flat, it's 3d, and so we should be measureing cubic miles or something. Keep in mind that NYC isn't exactly flat either. Large buildings hold many people on a small square footage. Same for the Voth Ship. Though I would say the Voth Ship is likely more dense than NYC, so 56 million may be conservative.
lol, 1 torpedo and 11 mil. voths die ???
