Improvements in electronics since the 1970s allow much smaller gunner's sights, comrade!

Ignore the gigantic gunsights on the Altay and K2!  They are immaterial!

 

 

Come to think of it though, why are gunner's sights so huge?  I know they have stabilized thermal imagers in them... but so does the EOTS in the JSF and that thing's way smaller and better streamlined.

My best guess is that it is cheaper to make a bulky sight, plus the stabilization requirements for a ground vehicle are harder to fulfil. Further than that I have nothing.
