Excuse me, but where did you get that figure? It seems quite unlikely.
Not impossible.... it's never really made clear how many destroyers the GTA / PVN / GTVA actually had/have. If you put it at 1 per fleet (the flagship), and IIRc there are about 12 fleets mentioned for the GTVA (lots of ambiguity over battlegroups and fleets, and whether Vasudan fleets count towards the total vs the Terran...), then 5-6 isn't too implausible. Offhand, I think
we only see about that many in FS2; the Repulse, Bastion, Messana and Carthage, plus a few mentioned in cbriefs by icon.
