<< sure it LOKS vulnerable, but think about it, the only way you can attack
 it is from the right side, and even then your'e gonna have ot go throuhg
 the arm or wing to get ot it, or perhaps even the beam sword itself when
 the pilot parries you, in the heat of battle you're probably not
 thinking, "oh, dosn't that cable look vulnerable i think i'll hit that"
 it's more like "oh that guy is scary, how can i stop him from hitting
 me?" anytime in a fight when you are directly engaged and have time to
 plan out a move like that somebody's doing something wrong.. if that
 cable ever did get severed it would most likely be just by dumb luck and
 i think i twould be coated in enough 'soft' armor to keep sprays form
 vulcans and perhaps most machine cannons from worrying it

   A Gundam pilot isn't scared of a scary looking robot, LOL! a every day
pilot yeah, but not one used to fighting. I don't think the cable has armor
on it, if it did, it would probably look like the heated, articulated whip
attached to its shield. Its not a smart move to let an enemy's appearance
alone determine your moves in a fight, looks can be deceiving. It's the pilot
that makes the machine to a certain extent, not the machine itself. Epyon's
scary look does no good if a novice takes it up aganist a Gundam pilot that
will not let the Epyon's look mess with s/he's mind.
