Besides the "eye" visual sensor, Gundam's "mohawk"
sensor is for detecting infra-red source to locate
large targets nearby. Its V-antenna is for confirming
location and short range communications. ALso,
numerous cameras are located all over the MS body to
simulate realistic outside views from the cockpit.

In the 08 OVA, the Aggai pounced Karen's Gundam first
knocking its head off, then hammer Gundam's cockpit
with its drop hammer-like left arm. Karen's cockpit
went totally viewless by then.
