Gilboron said: I don't think a body, however prosthetic, can be strong enough to show bullet holes but still be able to keep going after being hit so many times.
It would be discussed in later episodes that the cyborg's body is special issue for a crack unit in the Japanese military. I think that could best answer your question on how it (the cyborg attacker) could take all the gunshot damage while being able to flee and escape S9.

As a natural extension, the second series is keeping a pathos and complexity that do not regret and elevate the saga of GITS.
Plot and narrative promoted, drawings and animations discreet.
Soundtrack and opening and ending really nice.
This is an anime that deserves the vision of all those who are fans of Japanese animation.
