Bad quote. Ackbar was outnumbered at least 10-1 when he said that.
And without wanting to take things to far, simply being a warship doesn't make something automatically better. If you put a 17th century warship up against a cruise liner with a tomahawk battery, which do you think will win? I realise there's a bit of exaggeration here, but the tech behind the Mon Cal is further along than the ISD. That's why the republic started using MC90s after the war.....
