I don't believe there is one.

Russian tanks are much more crowded inside than US tanks, which is why they have a height requirement.

Here is some more information on being an M1 Crewman.

Im 170cm and have been accepted as a crewman for M1A2's, LAV's and M113's. Im sure there is no need to worry if you're around my height.

Isn't it true that special forces are not meant to be tall as well, same as helicopter pilots?

I think cutoff for a lot of Special Operations units is 170cm.
So yes, there often are height cutoffs for whatever military job you're trying to get.
