The geth have considerable industrial powers, as one fleet consisted of anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 ships of unknown armament. Also, [http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Heretic_Station one of their space stations] (originally quarian, but extensively rebuilt later) was known to be over 20 km long and 11 km wide, which, despite the  large amounts of empty space in it, is considerably larger than the stations constructed by the [[United Federation of Planets]]. That station was capable of generating a 1.21 petawatt transmission of considerable complexity. Their hacking abilities are formidable for any technologically dependent race that faces them.  On the ground they deploy infantry that use a combination of mass accelerator rifles, flamethrowers, and rocket launchers, supported by small airborne drones and tank-sized quadrupedal units called Armatures.  The geth are also known to use personal [[cloaking device]]s, but have not demonstrated such technology for spaceships.

In space, their firepower is comparable to that of other Mass Effect civilizations, although they did build at least one "super [[dreadnought]]" a third larger than most known dreadnoughts; this vessel had sufficient armor and shielding to withstand sustained fire from a [[quarian]] fleet attempting to destroy it (albeit with the support of the rest of the geth fleet). A surviving member of the Prothean race (generally shown to be more advanced than the current galactic races) stated its gun was a match for that of their flagship. It was stated that the geth built dozens of dreadnoughts, but it is unclear whether all were that model.  This dreadnought was stated to use defense lasers in the ultraviolet spectrum, with greater firepower and range than typical defense lasers in Mass Effect.
