Remember that not all tanks have the perfectly efficient design where
everything is fit in exactly under the limit.  There could be a lot of
slack.	Also, I think the size should be relative depending on the game
background played.  If the game is purely modern, then a Challenger may
well be a size 5 or 6, since it's one of the largest tanks in the world
currently.  But if some kind of futuistic/alien force is used alongside
more "modern" force, the size has to be scaled down accordingly.  e.g.
make a Challenger a size 3 if the largest tanks available are huge grav

This should depend on the design as above.  If it's modern, the M1's
should have a HKP and lesser tanks should have a HVC, etc.  And change
