Not so.

Soviet armour is low profile to reduce it's silhouette. Further, during the 1950's autoloaders were introduced allowing the turret height to be further reduced. Bonus was that the crew requirement could be reduced to three.

Most militaries prefer shorter tank crew but most do not have set crew height restrictions. Even modern armour fighting compartments are pretty cramped.
