Well, people who can't be bothered to look up the archive or the appropriate
references probably should stay quiet in the first place.

Gundam Timeline:

0083-11-02 Albion arrives the Moon city of Von Braun
0083-11-03 Cima arrives Von Braun in a disguised communications ship
0083-11-04 Albion leaves the Moon
0083-11-10 Naval review ruined by the GP-02A's nuke
0083-11-11 Gato accepts the Neue Ziel from Axis advance fleet, GP-03 is
                launched into action, the course for the colony drop changed
0083-11-12 GP-03 engages the Neue Ziel, operation to stop colony drop
0083-11-13 Colony dropped on North America
0083-11-23 Martial court proceedings began for personnel involved in the
                "Delaz conflict"

So, if all Cima got was the plans on 0083-11-04 (the same time Albion takes
off from the moon - remember how she ditched that pilot in a Zaku II because
of his BIG MOUTH and he justly got killed by Kelly), she had exactly a week
to have the mobile suit built from scratch, despite the lack of resources
among the Delaz Fleet, not to mention the Feds like the Albion crew hunting
you down.

Better yet, on page 45 of the same book, you have a full page feature of
the Gerbera Tetra, including background info, which CLEARLY says that it
was built by the mostly ex-Zeon Corps engineers and was later given to Cima
by AE president O'Sullivan during their secret meeting, and how the suit was
cleverly disguised so as to allow Cima to smuggle it out without being
detected by the Feds.

Yes, these books offer more than just pretty pictures printed in full color,
if you can read.

Now does that settle it or what?
