Better would be some sort of reactive armour to neutralize the threat.

Or some sort of artillery to neutralize the target.

Or active protection like for tanks and armored vehicles where it automatically blasts an explosive at threats in short range. Might make insurance cases... interesting.

It’s kinda what it does. It makes it so the impact is on the harder and stronger chassis and not on the body which is much weaker
