If I point a rocket launcher at you, it will be more intimidating than a handgun, even if it so happens that it's a replica.

The ships in the Abramsverse are big for ONLY ONE reason: they wanted the shuttle bay to look like it could land 1000 troops at once.
I know that. We were discussing the in-universe reasons.

So, one is free to "justify" why the ships are big all they want.
What I meant is that the explanation is not logical in real life but makes a modicrum of sense in movie logic.
