		The M2 does not have a 50% increase in volume over the
M113.  The hull structure *is* quite different, and while the M2 is
larger, it isn't larger by leaps and bounds.  An M113 is probably on the
low end of Size 3.  Seeing them side-by-side and playing in and around
them, you get a better appreciation of the differences.

	Although, in Vietnam troopers of the 8th Armoured Transport used
to strip M113s and put them on the back of 5-ton trucks to create
monstrosities... :)

	Too bad the US government doesn't always think that way... 
are a lot of horror stories circulating from M2 crew about will and will
not penetrate an M2... <shudder> :)
