Chinese Type 04 IFV is HUGE compared to the Chinese Type 96 MBT...

Can you see the size difference?  This is going to become a problem that has to be addressed going into the future.  How do you combat size signature on a modern battlefield?  The larger you are the easier it is to see you.  IFVs across the board are getting bigger as the need to provide both the volume to carry an overburdened infantry AND protect the occupants increases.

Do we need to adopt smaller but more numerous vehicles?  Do we adjust the iron triangle and put a bigger emphasis on mobility?  Do we accept the current meta and seek to increase protection thru other means (APS)?

I don't know but when you have IFVs that are larger than MBTs then its obvious that something will have to give.
