That's pretty much the issue, yes. While allowing the crew to specialize increases their performance, it doesn't increase it enough to compete with 2 people single crewing equivalent vehicles.

Not only does that second option have twice the hitpoints, it can also flank the single tank, packs as much or twice as much AV power, and carries more power or more options in secondary weapons as well.
