Wasn't Delaz fighting in A Bao A Qu's defense as well. He must have commanded a
decent fleet at that time. Zion couldn't have aimed at fighting off an entire
U.N.T. navy with just a Doros class. And even if they really did, what's to
fear about the U.N.T. fleet, with her next-to-useless MS's and vessels? Even if
Zion pilots are mostly novices, the technological advantage they enjoy should
put them on par with the U.N.T. Then we add the element of vessels: Zion ships
are far superior to those employed by the U.N.T. Logically speaking, the U.N.T.
had no winning chip, except for the "Wooden Horse," which somehow refuses to
sink despite being critically hit from a million angles by Zion soldiers, who
are anything but fools and crazy kids that make up the Whitebase's crew.
