Wow, that's a bit large I think. I've always looked at the MBTs as
size 3 and 4.
If a 120mm gun is a size 6 how do you scale larger artillery like
Heavy artillery that is size 6 and 203mm or Med artillery that is
Size 4 and 155mm?
Given that a 2.5 ton truck or even a HEMTT is just as large as an MBT
(dimension wise..) I think your scales are a bit off.
Overall volume wise a Bradly isn't that much different than an
Abrams. The Abrams is longer and lower but the Bradley is pretty damn
tall.
Abrams 26' long 7' 9" tall. [size 3]
Bradley 21' long 9' 9" tall [size 3]
M60 22' long 10' tall [Size 3, HKP4, 2 MGs, that's 13 capacity points]
And a Bradly is a 1 shorter than an M60 in length and height.
Other numbers for comparison.
M113 16' x 8'[size 2 given it has a HMG + 11 passenger spots, 8
capacity points]
LAV (8x8) 21' 8' 10" [size 3-4]
8x8 HEMTT 33' Long [size 3-4]
US M35/44 2.5 Ton (the Deuce and a Half) 22' long [size 2-3]
US AAV7 25.5' long 10.5' tall [size 4, 3crew + 25 men, plus a HMG/GL
cupola]
All of these are in the size 3-4 class imo (except the M113 which is
stubby).
An Abrams would work out to be a size 4 I think. Size 5 is getting
into the MAUS size of tank. 6 and 7 are just massive objects like
those big open pit mining trucks.
