The most dangerous place on an MS appears to be the cockpit, which is
mounted directly above the Minovsky fusion reactor, which is prone to
explode when [a] intersected by a beam weapon or [b] short-circuted by
collateral battle damage.

We're talking thermonuclear rockets powered by a fusion reactor, both of
which make any chemical explosive almost negligible if they get out of hand.

I'm surprised that these bad boys don't use their thrusters as weapons -- a
shot of plasma at close range, kill the target and propel yourself clear in
one fell swoop. (Or a swell foop, depending on the sound effects?) The
closest that I can recall is the V2 Gundam using its beam wings to cut
other MS in half, but then my memory's proven to be a bit faulty of late.
