The point being that there was some statement to the effect that it was being designed for the same form/fit factor as the Hellfire. I assumed that would mean having the same diameter.
Einstein got it backward: one cannot prevent a war without preparing for it.

Stryker M-SHORAD has 2.75 inch diameter Stingers and 7 inch diameter Hellfires. So this missile is planned to be used from the same missile launchers as Hellfires. Not that it needs to be 7 inch missile itself, just that it fits the same envelope. Being smaller all around makes this easy. They could've designed totally new missile with same diameter as Hellfire, but that would've been much more expensive than using Cuda technology and components.
