The Gundam (& other core fighter utilizing MS) may have a double layer of
core armor; the external armor then the armore of the core fighter, the only
place where this isn't really true is in the front of the cockpit that's
probably why these parts are pretty thick in most designs.

The cockpit shielding has to be really really really good....otherwise a lot
