How to Improve Textures in Unreal Engine

I’m trying to figure out why my textures aren’t looking as good in-game and substance painter as I want. I’ve shared my ship model a week or so ago and was hoping I can get some advice on how to improve. Are my UV’s the issue? I used 2k textures split among 5 parts: main ship, cockpit, canopy, landing gear, and turrets. My goal is to get this sort of quality found in Arma 3 when Im standing really close up to the model in game:

Sadly my textures aren’t as high resolution and I cant figure out why. Here are some screen captures:

Should I be splitting my model up into more texture sheets? One for the seat and dash for example? Or would this be a bad way due to performance in Unreal Engine or any engine for that matter?

I’ve attached a dropbox link (100MB) of my raw files for the main ship and cockpit, hopefully someone can comment on what my issue is.
