Is it true that explosion delivers 4 damages to large unit? Like a grenade under the tank would deliver 4 times more damage comparing to the small unit?

Something is there, but buried under all the other information. For instance, the Cyberdisc entry does mention their susceptibility to explosives.

Aha. Here is it.

Quote
Because of its large size, Cyberdiscs take roughly quadruple damage from explosive weapons; rather, they take damage once for every segment caught in the blast.

I understand this is vanilla mechanics and this begs another question. Is it just lazy programming or something is in it? Should OXC/OXCE fix this to be affected just once from blast damage?

lazy programing would be if Cyberdisc get 8 time damage in some cases, OXCE deliberately handle that only up to 4 times 2x2 big units can be hit by blast.
Beside if only one part of unit is exposed then unit get same damage as 1x1 unit.

I do not see problems with this logic as big units have bigger surface that can be affected by blast wave.
