Or, more particularly, Fortran readily supports multiprocessing over a network of linked compute servers (which is what most supercomputers look like these days) whereas Stata/MP is limited to using the cores available in one single compute server. Most applications on our university's compute cluster make use of many more cores than are present in a single compute server (which is all that Stata/MP can access).
