I think, INMHO, that the GP-02 was never intended as a close combat unit
but as a long range attack unit. The beam sabers and the vulcan guns
were standard for Gundams so Nina left them in place. As we see in the
OAV the shield was used to avoid harming the GP-02 in the nuclear blast.
Then the shield appears extremely tough, after all it stop a
Megaparticle shot, the same thing that destroyed easily Zion
