Remember an overwhelming number of GM can make up the difference between
experience and inexperience. As for GM, it is just a bit worst off than
Gelgoog, with the vast majority of medium to great Zeon pilots being killed
@ Solomon, Zeon has been filling Rick Dom and Gelgoog with student pilots
like Bernie Wiseman of 0080. By then, Federation have had some pilots of
great abilities like Burning and Sanders.

I won't debate about Giren's intelligence, but I will say that he appeared
to have several blind spots in his thinking. In his quest for power, he
horded all of the good stuff for his domain, The Home Defense Fleet. If
Solomon had gotten its fair share of Gelgoog, it wouldn't have been the
bloodbath that it became. With that in mind, he managed to loose some of
his best pilots on Solomon.
