While Gato has, as I quote, "He has nothing but experience in space combat." it's still easier to convert from a 3-d mode of thinking into 2-d, compared to thinking in terms of 2-d into 3-d.

Ensign Chuck Keith also had that problem when the Albion went up into space and Monsha was training him...Monsha was saying something like "this is space! you have to think in 3-d" or something to that effect...although I presume at that time Kou already had a feel of space, albeit only enough to maneuver, but not do combat with the Gelgoogs of Cima's unit.
