It seems that the Akkadian juggernaut is about the same size as a typical Brittanian cruiser. IF they are using even remotely the same scale, then you can imagine that one little minifig could be comfortably huddled in the space of one stud, and uncomfortably, two or three minifigs could occupy that space.
The whole Akkadian nation fits in there?
I'm thinking that people might be misinterpreting each others' scale here? Or maybe its just me reading too deeply into things.
