The Feds could not nuke the Zeon HQ (Antarctic treaty, do you
remember?). I see things a little differently.
First of all the MS-14 were a limited mass production. The best, veteran
Zeon pilots were killed in action. The Feds were more numerous. Tactics
too was a factor but we must not understimate the raw power of the
Federal fleet.
