Remember that no one, not even Anton Flanagan, really understood what
"Newtype" was. The Federation, noting that Amuro Ray's reflexes were so
fast that the RX-78-2 Gundam couldn't keep up with him, invented the
magnetic coating to keep the MS from burning out its bearings on him. The
NT-1 was designed to be as fast as Amuro, thus making it a "Newtype"
machine, even though it lacked any psychommu capability whatsoever.

It certainly would! The Alex's Chobham armor absorbed the entire 12-charge
chain mine assault, which might otherwise have destroyed the Gundam. The
Chobham armor was then discarded to reveal an unscathed Gundam ready to
demonstrate its speed, unencumbered by 12-odd tons of Chobham overcoat.
