This two shield become one then two again, puzzled me when it first appeared
in the earlier episodes when they were still on Earth. Amuro knew that one
side would be vulnerable, whenever he deployed in Gundam then formed G-Armour,
and he explained this in detail in a lecture to the crew. The solution? the
shields conveniently stack together. I don't remember what episode it was but
they actually show the two shields magically combining together after Gundam
was released from the G-Armour. : )

Also I think when the Gundam is inside the G-Armour, Amuro's controls display
data from the G-Armour's cameras and sensors. I don't think he is sitting
inside blind but I don't know if Gundam is holding a beam rifle in its hand
when they transform into G-Armour though...
