We know it has to have some kind of internal cooling system. Not only is
there there limited contact for heat exchange from the suit to the shield,
but the suit would have to have an internal cooling system to deal with its
reactor(minovsky particles couldn't handle *all* the heat). If anything,
the shield is some kind of huge "heat sink", not the cooling system itself,
an addition to the suit's internal cooling. The designers obviously took
the shield's cooling properties for granted, but keep in mind they didn't
expect the GP-02 to operate without the shield.
