If you'd recall to the beginning of Gundam W you'd notice that Zechs
successfully drove Heero out of Gundam W and it was spotless. Tallgeese isn't
gundanium (to my knowledge) so wouldn't actually using something like
his buster rifle blow him up good. Plus all the gundams are gundanium which
means they CAN go through the earth's atmosphere w/out problems.

Anything less than a beam rifle could possibly hurt a gundam, besides even
without ammo beam sabers/scythes should be able to take down the rest like
knives through butter
