UT doesn't say anything either way. Logically, the answer would depend on fine details of the particular suit used. Either yes or no on manual exterior controls is plausible.

A cutting tool is just about always wrong for defeating armor, and a stabbing tool generally won't work either against power armor (which has no gaps and plenty of DR at the chinks).

A shaped charge limpet mine dispenser will work pretty well though.
I don't know any 3e, so there is no chance that I am talking about 3e rules by accident.
