Probably sliced -- the "beam wings" are the same I-field enclosed plasma as
the beam saber or beam shield, a by-product of the V2's Minovsky Drive.

Minovsky particles only block electromagnetic waves in the long end of the
spectrum: microwaves, FM radio, TV, AM radio. Shorter wavelengths -- from
visible light through ultraviolet to X and gamma rays -- are not
absorbed. Laser communications at optical to ultraviolet wavelengths work
just fine, but are directional along the line-of-sight.

Laser weaponry is conspicuously absent from the Gundam universe, as are
rail guns and other SDI/"Star Wars" technologies developed a decade after
the first Gundam series. An X-ray laser would, I think, be devastating....
