That's not a bad idea. Which leads me to think that Minovsky particles
absorb/block radiation, so maybe the shield does deflect the heat and blast
of an explosion, but the Suit itself can easily block the radiation by
dumping M-particles after it fires its nuclear cannon. And I can see the
shield as being self-contained, so that when Kou damages the shield, Gato
realizes that he needs the shield to be functional and it won't stand up to
Beam Rifle hits, so he retreats in order to keep the shield intact, not
because he suddenly lost coolant. Sounds good, anyway.
