Today I went to Camp Pendelton (Marine Corps Base) to tour my old stomping grounds and took a few pics. ?Check out my AV next to a Tank and you'll notice that the tank is wider but not that much longer or taller than my AV.

No trick photo, take a close look, the tank is behind my Avalanche.

It's the perspevtive of your picture.

The bed of your truck looks to be about 3/4 of the length of the cargo container in the background.

You may be right about the size comparison.
What the tank lacks in size you know for sure it more than makes up for in firepower.

What's more important though was the photo op presented to you. Hope you took lots of pics from different angles. It is not everyday when an AV gets that close to a tank!
Well the tank does have some neat mods like the flap up sunroof, the big gun and the cool AT tracks ;D
It looks like the Av got a turret in the second pic!

Thats a keeper. Roadrunner's gonna get a new updated Av with a turret in the war against the coyote. >:D Time to update my sig.
