Obviously the ships in the assault would have to be some of the most fearsome the Rebels could muster. Do you think that surprise Rebel attacks on lone Imperial Star Destroyers could have been successful ? Could there have been entire fleets of Mon Calamari Cruisers battling Star Destroyers for control of their homeworlds ? Where do you think the Rebel fleet was at the time of the Battle of Hoth ?
Good question, the situation is that in the case of the Death Star II, it had to be destroyed, or nothing would matter. It lacked the weak points that the first Death Star had and it could destroy any planet. It had to be taken down then and there. Do I think the entire fleet was there over Endor, quite possibly, Mon Cal cruisers were originally Passenger Liners.
