    The old sight seems better - at least, it doesn't look like a huge bucket.

    Its not a beauty pageant. Bigger sight provides better FoV. Probably Trophy system also limits it thats why new sight is placed higher.

    Eventually more vulnerable to artillery shrapnel, but this is the case for all external equipment, Trophy radars included.
