  Odessa was a major mining facility, but it's doubtful whether the
Federation could set up factories there in time to contribute
substantially to the war effort. As for China and the arctic, I doubt it;
the 08th MS Team mobile suits were made from Gundam spare parts, probably
at Jaburo, and the Alex is launched from a small research post that is
easily wiped out by the Cyclops team.

  If you wanted to come up with another four production spots to
supplement Luna Two and Jaburo, I might suggest Belfast and perhaps
Madras. Belfast is the location of the Federation base where White Base
docks after Operation Odessa, while Madras, India is described as a major
Federation base in Giren's Greed and Hobby Japan's Gundam RPG.
