uhm, military paranioa rule: you have a bunker with weapons so nasty that
they have eye-pass systems with handprint scanners for it, you have two
prototypes, one which obviously has a weapon load system and a bazooka in
its shield. you have the prototypes stored in a white-base type ship which
has a lot of firepower. what do you infer? that they are just resupplying?
add to that you see a lot of their tech personnel - and the base's --
running around transporting stuff from bunker to the carrier (i know, we
don't see that in the cartoon, but there are things that happen off-camera).
The captain of the ship actually accompanies the base commander to the
bunker. scuttlebutt in a base travels pretty fast, secrecy rules
notwithstanding. though they may not have known for sure that it was a
nuke-carrying mecha, the scuttlebutt and just a little brainpower would have
allowed them to infer pretty much all that.

and best of all, you have Nina rooting around the prototypes. LOL!
