This bug is reproducible.
I have a fairly large fleet with a maxxed out pilot count. I have 20 or so fighter squads and when I scroll down in my ship list in the middle left, the game crashes.
EVGA GTX 970
Game is running off of a Samsung 840 pro 256gb
If I let the battle go on, it usually also crashes when the enemy gets to around 12%, or if I win, immediately upon “accepting” my win, the game crashes.
