They float, so they need the internal volume to displace the water.

Compare to the Duplex drive Sherman with the folding canvas screens.

The weight of US WWII combat vehicles was limited by the capacity of the ship cranes, about 20 tons.

This is one of the reasons the US did not field a heavy tank, they did not  have a way to transport them.
