If there were any justice, the Russian tanks would be the most volatile things around because of the cramped crew compartment.

They often are. Half of them are essentially a gun attached to an ammo rack with a radioman on top.

Here's an image of the current (7.1) size difference. Couldn't get a proper top-down view in the garage, and that's a T-54 which I'm assuming is the same size as the Type 59.

Compared to the Test server picture on the previous page, it appears the IS-7 has shrunk by 5-6%.

As long as the crew becomes fittingly more vulnerable in the tighter space (i.e. their hitbox doesn't shrink, too), I'm fine with this for the sake of history. Now if only WG would do this consistently with every vehicle.

AFAIK Type 59 is about 20~40cm shorter than T-54/55, depending on the variant.

Aah, okay. Your comparison in the other thread is much more accurate anyway.
