"Total number of forces" listing in mission-related articles
I came out with an idea. By looking at the current layout of mission-related articles, I think what I've just planned might reaplace  "Notable ships present" sections throughout the Wiki.

I'm a bit unsure about the "Casualties" section, whose info may be various. In my example, only acceptable casualties are shown(if both Iota transports are destroyed, the mission is a failure).

Click!

Re: "Total number of forces" listing in mission-related articles
Hmm. the current table suggests that the Psamtik and the Belisarius were present all along. Also we cannot be sure of the casualties because that varies really on the player's performance. That's my problem with it. Otherwise it looks good.

The table is to work in tandem with the rest of the article. From the Walkthrough section, the reader knows how and when certain ships arrive. The table is for a more generic reference. :)

The first four missions of the Main FS2 Campaign have tables now. :)

Late to the game, but maybe casualties should have some qualifier like "Objective specific casualties"?

I assume the 0-1 or 0-3 means it could lose anywhere in those numbers?
