Umm, yes, they were mentioned before. All MS reactors also contain a weak
I-Field to keep the plasma out.

Perhaps this is the problem...you see, I don't consider Turn A canon Gundam.
^_^ (Stupid mustached robots. Besides which, it's a dumb series IMHO)

Definite your term "mega-launcher"?

The shields in Crossbone Gundam are beam shields, not I-Fields, if recall

Also, in the Minovsky posts, it's been confirmed that a high concentration
of Minovsky particles is needed to create a I-Field...how does that all get
into the shield casing? Even if it does, with advanced technology, some one
should develop a weapon capable of piercing that barrier. As to G-Savior, I
have no knowledge of it...
