The built in power field generators gives the Xerxes pattern cockpit a unique appearance on the battlefield.
The only major critism of the Xerxes Cockpit is that they are known for being relatively fragile on the open battlefield, due to the exposed power generator which isn't as heavily armoured as many Pilots would like to see.
Those that do use the Xerxes often bolt additional armour to the externally mounted power generator and once this is done, many report that they are servicable cockpits, featuring extensive enhanced software suites and a great array of monitors to monitor all the Mech systems.
One of the greatest features touted by Xerxes users is that they are exceptionally easy to dismount from - simply by shutting down the front "glacis" field, they can dismount directly from the Mech's body without the need to open a hatch.
