I doubt it. Getting "Alex" to Amuro is a genuine effort on the part of
Federation Augusta lab. They expend quite a few of their own resource in
getting the MS out of Earth (in pieces and untested). And while they could
have send this over to Luna 2 for final assembly and warmup testing, it is
too far away from the frontline to do anyone any good. Putting it into a
neutral colony near where White base was is actually a good idea.

I seriously doubt that Federation is even aware of the Cyclop team. Sure
they know that an elite Zeon squad hit their base in the Artic lab, but
after it left Earth, I doubt they give it much thought about it.

Col. Killing was trying to nuke Labot regardless of any outcome. He wanted
to nuke the colony to prevent the defense agreements between Federation and
Side 6. He didn't dispatch a fleet, but just a few ship over to nuke the

The captain of the nuke carring ship surrender, rather than carrying out his
unlawful order.
