by which time the impact forces will be such that internal components and probably the lens mount / lens will have failed

Quite possible, depends upon the impact point, especially with modern digital mirrorless  designs.  The "pentaprism" housing inirrorless cameras is anything but of course, a stylistically chosen cover for an area filled with a digital display.  Corners have always been vulnerable but no longer contain winding mechanisms, just encoders and switches.
