        That's a good point, the shield itself could conceivably be able to
generate a magnetic field to deflect particles...and the heavy armor of the
MS would be just to deflect heat and some blast damage...a shield that size
could have a very large field. An extension of the idea is if it actually
harnesses Minovsky particles in a magnetic field to create a "passive
field" just enough to deflect radiation and heat from the gp02a.
Hmmm...and that would explain Gato's need to retreat when the shield gets
