Well, Giren figured taking out his old man was a bit more important than to
save the big cannon for the final battle. I supposed the Titan's Colony
Laser was an improvement over the Solar Ray for its ability to recharge
quickly. Solar Ray was probably still recharging when the battle was over.

The Feds still has tons of space fighter pilots who are not fressh off the
highschool. Sure they have no experience piloting MS, but they are much
much better pilot than the highschoolers.
