Thermal optics = medium optics. Then how about size?

In these postings, FLX said all vehicles which have thermal optics should have 'medium' optic stat.
Then I have a question that if there's a standard for optic stats, where's the standard for size stats?
For all vehicles and helicopters' size what is related? And if there were rules for size stat, are there any specific ones?

Good question. I'm guessing it depends on whether you're using a vehicle or a tank.

It's worth noting that some of the game models are totally out of whack when it comes to scale. The Leclerc especially comes to mind.

I'd be willing to bet that some of the inconsistencies are deliberate for balance. There also could be some separate scales at work — e.g., IFVs get relative sizes to other IFVs, tanks get relative sizes to other tanks, etc.

But for the T-34 and M47... :| This is all speculation anyway.

IDKbetween T-72 and K1 whose height difference is nearly 2~6 centimeters. Leopard 1's medium and T-34, Shermans are big...

Just Eugen's favor covered with 'balance', to confuse all of their customers? :( wanting them to tell where is the standard for this topic.

Game still has a lot of inconsistencies about sizes.

The quad gets extra stealth, but I think too make it apply across all size has not been done with detection range.

Conspiracy! :P

The easiest explanation is that, over the past 4 years, the game programmers (who may have changed from game to game) had different ideas on what "Size" meant, and older vehicles (from Wargame: EE) were brought into Red Dragon with potentially antiquated interpretations.
