Vehicle Sizes heralding the invasion of the Lilliputians

Not sure is this has been addressed before but I thought I'd query it.

What happened to the vehicles sizes in the rulebook? for example Helicopter and Plane being medium sized, which puts it between 4 and 8 feet.

Battleship colossal size which means its no longer than 128 feet :)

Fighter Jet Large sized which means its 8 to 16 feet in length ??? (An ROV maybe).

Also I notice it says Gigantic instead of Gargantuan too in many cases.

I just wondered as I was making a helicopter based of an existing one, which is by no means large as far as helicopters go at 48 feet length, which would make it Gargantuan.. yet a Generica Helicopter as I say is noted in the book as Medium sized :lol:

Originally vehicles were supposed to have their own size scale, which got dropped from the final text of the book. Hopefully the Gadget Guide can address a number of issues where vehicles are concerned, since it's part of the game I'm less than completely satisfied about.
