I've always thought they're roughly the same size, but this pic suggests otherwise. A trick?

It does look smaller, don't it?

In looking up dimensions, they are supposedly similar, with the A2 being heavier with its new armor and upgrades.

So either the picture is a off-scale photoshop or the External dimensions are that much reduced.

must be a trick, the added on armour would make the later model bigger then the original.

I personally think this is a photoshop.

Yes, the pics are off scale … They didn't make a new vehicle for the A2. The just added and upgraded the existing vehicles … AFAIK.

Definitely photoshopped. Unless these are Iran's new indigenous super-IFV's…

Look like plastic models to me, so variation could be due to different manf.
Plus, "Happy" Christmas seems a bit European to me, rather than an American way of saying it…

I think you're right. One of the models is out of scale. I'd wager it's the M2 based on the relative crew size to the vehicle.

Could be. But if we stick to 1/35 scale, the 2 manufacturers of M2s & M2A2s were Tamiya & Academy. The Academy kits were virtual copies of the Tamiya kits. I've built both & there is no practical difference between the two.
