Well, they didn't really let them walk all over their base. Grodek took casualties while making his way to the control room. I remember at least 1 guy getting machinegun'd in the face by Veigan soldiers, who Grodek then proceeded to take out with a nade like a boss. Then right before they entered the room some other guy got taken out by the turrets.

I think the seeming lack of resistance is due to a few factors, namely that Ambat took a big hit from the cannon, which most likely killed some of the security forces, and that the Veigans don't have that many people to begin with.

The guys inside the control room were probably unarmed, so why would they even do anything when Grodek and his crew have assault rifles in hand?

That still doesn't explain why they just stood there doing nothing but continue to work on their consoles. They didn't even look back as if there's nothing going on around them.

I would say fanatical ideology, but those bridge automatons continued to monitor their consoles even Ambat (and its systems) was disintegrating around them.

Maybe it's a symptom of the Mars disease: be oblivious to anything but. Do this until told (by Sir Ezcelcant) otherwise.

Age1 got defeated by the Baqto, but not to this degree.

And the Titus had truely apathic performance against the Zedas which caused the creation of the Spallow.
The the only damage we can really see is to the arms and shoulder area which are parts that will be replaced in the AGE-2 Double Bullet so really all we can do is wait and see if there is damage to any part they don't frequently change.

Due to the wear system this degree of damage is indeed less crippling.
Imagine loosing both arms on for example the Mk2, the pilot would be in major trouble.

Yeah losing both arms on most Gundams you and the ship you're on is pretty much screwed the only other exceptions I think off of the top of my head are the Impulse and the G-units from the Gundam Wing side story.

Also after seeing the preview it does look like the it's AGE-1 and the damage is worse then I thought.

They're probably playing a "Gage-Ing Battle" in the Big Ring, with Flit showing his son some ace shooting skills using an Age-1.

Spoiler for GvG Extreme Vs.:

Yup. I had a closer look, and the shots that hit the AGE-2 are purple, meaning they come from a DODS rifle, not a Veigan suit. Pity.

Expensive training, trashing the top-tier MS.

Isn't this one of the best way to end this chapter, an X-rounder brawl?

it's likely just a simulation battle. Not one using the actual mobile suits. Flit's likely training him to fight X-rounders or hoping to awaken Asemu as one.

Anybody noticed how the Veigans are obsessed with using small lettercases? I can barely find a single capital in their UI screens in episode 20. It doesn't seem to only be their designation numbers it seems.
