The AT fields are plot magic that does whatever the plot requires, that's why.
If you look at Eva as a war story and expect it to make logical sense, you'll be disappointed and possibly even badly confused. "Why don't the Angels attack all at once, instead of one at a time like mooks in a martial arts movie?" "Why didn't they use something bigger than smallish tactical nukes on the Angels?" "If the 'positron rifle' worked on one Angel, why didn't they use it to shoot all of the rest?" "Why does the Eva sink into the lava? It should be less dense than stone, even molten stone, and it should float on top of it." The war stuff, the giant robot stuff, is background for a psychological story about human beings being pushed to their limits and crushed by despair. It's not really a war story at all, except peripherally.
