Gulfstream Windows

Can anybody tell me why the G-IV and the G-V have large windows in the back while the G-III doesn't?

I assume it`s just a matter of product improvement. The IV and V are larger, more expensive A/C. By the way, I think the Gulfstream are gorgeous a/c, by far the nicest to work on, too.

Maybe I am blind, but I don't see a difference!

I have been aboard both the GIV and GV and those larger windows are the emergency exits. The glass is no larger, but rather the seal around the wondow is larger giving the appearance of a larger window.
