Don't forget what kind of firearms Ifrit used:
shotgun. This is possibily the only retocon for
Kampfer's origin.

But Ifrit was a heavy mobile suit in between Gouf and
Dom. It may require the engineers certain amount of
time to refine it into Kampfer. Still, this make sense
since the Kampfer we saw in OVA is a bare bone model
w/o additional armors (seen on later SD model kits).
So these engineers must have achieved a lot in a very
short time.
