Kandosii-type dreadnaughts carried a maximum of 40.000 troops including the crew. So it's well over that number.
Gratulator's right and if you consider that the mandalorians did a LOT of conscripting whenever they took over a planet, they always bumped the numbers of their forces by at least 4 times more then when they started the campaign. Plus you have to consider the amount of people on a planet WORTH conscripting, because no mando recruiter worth his/her salt would take the elderly and the sick to become a neocrusader.
