The soldier looks tiny next to the tank in that picture, funny perspective.

It's not the perspective, they are huge machines. Here's one taken from an even lower perspective, while the one in the article is taken at eye level.

Yeah, I remember seeing armored military vehicles being transported, I assume to Iraq, in San Antonio, TX back around 2004. They were absolutely gigantic, and that's because they were being transported in pieces.

Nope in that picture the size looks totally normal. A bit big, but not Jurassic big. Maybe that's another case of neurological drama like the blue/white skirt-gate.

It is the perspective. Or you don’t see what he means. There’s a guy in the background who makes the engine deck look 4m off the ground, which it is not.

The tank looks like it is at least 3 times as high as the guy, it is the perspective. Sure they are large but they are noe anywhere close to 6 meters tall.
