Mobile Suits are considerably bigger than Tie Fighters, and are roughly the
same size as B- and Y-Wing fighters. Don't forget the an MS is huge. Another
point is that only V2 Gundams have a tech advantage over standard Star Wars
fighter craft. SW fighters have anti gravity and beam weaponry as standards,
and pull multi-Gee maneuvers without turning their pilots into jelly. It
isn't until Victory that MS's achieve roughly the same abilities, and with
older Gundam technology like beam shields and Megabeam cannons, the later
Victory MS's like the V2 would easily walk through just about anything the
Empire could through at it.
