In the game Giren's Greed, you can decide how much to spend on espionage
and intelligence gathering. If you spend enough, eventually you will have
a chance to steal blueprints or even completed prototypes of Fed's suits,
thus denying them their weapons after they expended all that R&D for you. :)
The bad news is, whatever you stole didn't turn out to be THAT good in
combat, like Amuro's Gundam which turned the tide of war...

So, to answer your question, it's closer to the second scenario. Zion stole
the blueprints and built their own Gundam, and Char was given one, IIRC.
