        OIC! That's a pausible reason. Another one is that the 120mm is more
difficult to maintain than a 90mm. Think of the amount of barrel cleaning
the techs need to do on a 120mm.. =) heck, I think the techs can _crawl_
into the barrel!

        Talking about Delaz's fleet, where did Delaz get the ammunition?
scouraging from the old battlefields won't have sustained him for so long,
not with the massive ammunition expenditures in Operation Stardust. He could
have gotten them on the black market, but the cost will probably ruin him,
so he probably have a factory or has a manufacturer supplying him on the
sly. Any ideas?
