Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26143288/When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.You are Marshall Stacker Pentecost, commander of the remaining Jaeger forces. You've been busy, turning the Jaeger force into a mega merc company, saving lives for money. You've found a great ally in Japan, begun constructing a second Shatterdome to compliment the one in Hong Kong. Japan has also offered it's facilities in return for sovereignty over the next Jaeger you produce. They've now provided a pair of Rapid Repair/Construction (RRCDs) to aid in Jaeger upkeep. Canada is now building is own Jaeger, Maple Fury. We left off after a double attack of Kaiju, one strike at Santa Cruz, breaching the pacific defense wall, and a sneak attack in London, devastating the city. You've suffered heavy losses recently.

It's suffered extreme damage around Santa Cruz. The PPDC is scrambling to repair the damage. The London Event is being compared to a second K-Day. 8 million people lie dead, the Jaeger project is limited to a single unit at this time, and the UK's economy will likely collapse in the coming weeks. Things are rapidly deteriorating. What will you do? The next Kaiju attack is expected to come in 4 days.
>>26160370Prioritise immediate repairs on Cherno, sell off the unsalvgable parts of Typhoon's arm and donate the proceeds to the UK.Assist Maple Fury where we can, get a monitoring system around the capes.See if we can begin building a MkIV production line producing Centurion Alacorn model Jaegers.
>>26160370We need Cherno and Crimson online fast, and anyway to aid the UK, we don't need a financial collapse on top of this. If possible make some sort of public announcement to reassure the public.
>>26160370Make another public announcement. We're only acting as essentially mercenaries because the PPCD isn't giving us another choice. Encourage ongoing steady investment in the Jaeger program (with those doing so receiving 50% discounts on our interventions) and those who are actually constructing their own Jaegers (such as Canada) receiving a 75% discount on our assistance.
>>26160370Oh and start construction on Japan's pet Jaeger. Encourage them to pick and train a crew from their own populace, offer Mako as she is fully trained and knows the ropes pretty well.
>>26160478You donate the 20 million USD to the UK from the third arm, and begin massed repairs on Cherno. The world is in mourning. Nations originally thought to be safe from the Kaiju threat are now longer confidant. Even the PPDC has backed off of pressuring you. You begin to construct a pair of bare bones monitoring offshore platforms at the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn. The nations of Ireland, Germany, and Brazil have also donated a total of 14 submarines to you to act as an early warning patrol fleet.>>26160756You begin building Japan's Jaeger, Roll d20 for naming (I'll pick the highest of the first 5 rolls)
>The Wall is already up>not allowing the players to build their own JaegerWhile I'm very glad to see PacRim on /tg/, I would have run this quest very differently.

>>26160234ooooh, have we got enough funds for another Jaeger?Maybe an EU based one, because that'd get all them Euro's in our debt, and draw them away from the retarded wall idea. Also, next Jaeger name is Bastion Tyrant. Because it sounds awesome.

>>26160916There was an initial 2 hits in the rift, and one obviously went for Santa Cruz. We sent two to attack it, didn't go amazingly, Cherno was damaged.

Rolled 16>>26160816Hey, with the design of the Japanese Jaeger, what weapons are we going to include on it?I was thinking, maybe some kind of underarm tank filled with Jaeger coolant. So the Jaeger can grab the Kaiju, hold it in place, then freeze/shatter the Kaiju before it can do so much damage.
>>26161084>>26161098This wins. Feel free to design fair winner: http://apps.warnerbros.com/pacificrim/designer/us/Buuut i'm going to only loosely follow the actual weapons you put on since we've mostly advanced to becoming super tooled up war machines, more so than in the movie.
>>26161224How about a Naginata that has a super coolant tube in the blade?>>26161239Can we put a team of researchers on about finding some way to get rid of Kaiju Blue? it's a huge issue, and totally useless for us in it's current state.I was thinking something like Air Dispersal pellets, that suck up all the Kaiju Blue around it, and turn it into something else. Maybe even something useful!
>>26161239Only one I know we totally need is pneumatic spike arms.Maybe if you want to get crazy you could have them be slightly hollow and, upon penetration, shoot out filaments that spin and "whisk" the Kaiju insides. Like a jellyfish stinger, only a bit more brutal.
>>26161319Have them be full of a supercooled liquid to freeze the Kaiju's insides and prevent the spread of Kaiju Blue.
>>26161362How about it injects neutralizing fluid?Not only would it eliminate the Kaiju Blue problem, but it would probably be excessively toxic to the Kaiju itself.
>>26161362>>26161319Oh shit, we could have an Arm Spike A'la "I Come in Peace" Dolph Lundgren. I still want a monomolecular Naganata with supercoolant spray though.

>>26161570Built into the Chest? Maybe in the four circle plate on the chest that unfold or some shit.There are only four bodies to choose from in the Jaeger maker. And two of them are Striker Eurekas.
>>26161639>>26161597 chest guns
>>26161715To be fair that's just the designer, OP knows what we mean if we describe it.
Hey guys, what about buying extra helicopters to spot for Kaiju during battles and to deploy sonar buoys and underwater illumination?
>>26161715Fuck that. If we just use that Chest piece, everything starts looking like Striker Eureka. It'd be easier if they added more parts to the designer.
>>26161741This guy. Promote him.
We need to get a public message out about The Wall being useless because of FLYING KAIJU.
>>26161184>Daft PunkIs this the new /tg/ character stereotype?
>>26161631These are some good ideas. I like the idea of a semi-guided sword throw. Seems very in the vein of what Pacific Rim would do.
>>26161775Of course if we had an artfag or two.. but I'm not gonna get greedy. Let's go with >>26161631as the picture for now. Lets see.BREACHER OMEGA: UNDER CONSTRUCTIONCREW ON STANDBYHIGH AGILITY, AVERAGE SPEED, AVERAGE STRENGTH. ARM MOUNTED CARBON NANOTUBE KATANA, TESLA SPIKED FIST WITH EXPERIMENTAL INJECTORS, CHEST MOUNTED PLASMA CASTER, NUMEROUS MANEUVERING AND LIFT OFF ROCKETS TO ATTEMPT TO COUNTER KAIJU AIR POWER
Is there anyway to develop some chemical or technological device that can "tag" Kaiju as the leave the rift so we don't loose sight of them again? I am thinking a minefield that disperses specific isotopes that allow satellites and AWACS to pick them up way easier. They can run/swim/fly anywhere but we KNOW they have to start at the Breach.
>>26161631Could we have the cockpit built into the chest of the mech instead of the weak, exposed head?
>>26161806ROBOT ROCK: IN PLANNING STAGESCREW: INTACT(2)ARMAMENT: TWIN "BASSDROPPER" SONIC STUN CANNONS. CARBON NANOTUBE STING-BLADES. GYPSY-DANGER PATTERN NUCLEAR CHEST TURBINE.SPECIAL ABILITIES: SPIKED FEET ALLOW ANCHORING TO THE GROUND TO BRING THE FULL POWER OF THE BASSDROPPERS TO BEAR.
>>26161903The Plasma Caster is in the chest. If we put the pilots there, they'll roast.(this is why a human head is separate from the body, to separate the brain's heat from that of the organs)
>>26161952Can we remove the head, place the cockpit in the chest, and add the two cannons on the shoulders?
>>26161983The recoil and leverage would knock the mech over if the casters were shoulder mounted.
>>26162014False. Japan's Jaeger (the one Pentecost was originally in) had howitzers on either shoulder.
How much money and research would it take to develop flying jagers?At least flight for a little bit, more height than the jet jumps give them.
>>26162085Please don't tell me you're thinking of a Mario Mech.
We could play up the threat of flying Kaiju to our advantage. Because the Wall can't beat flying Kaiju.
>>26162096Dammit you seen through my plan
>>26162043Howitzers can have backblast. A plasma caster is magnetically focused, and can't have any backblast.Along with that, having a chest cockpit and twin shoulder mounted plasma casters presents us with the same issue of overheating as with placing the caster in the chest. Heat can't be vented to air very effectively, so a liquid coolant would be necessary, leading to a higher body temperature. A higher body temperature for the Jaeger would reduce the effectiveness of the Ice-Katana, and could lead to heatstroke for the pilots.>>26162085Developing ways to force flying Kaiju to the ground would be a better use of resources.
>>26161952Well then, we're gonna have to do something about the very prevalent threat of the Jaegar's head being ripped (namely the Typhoon). We may also wish to invest in sealed battlesuits and helmets for the Cherno pilots, wouldn't want them to drown in the event of a hull breach and they're submerged under water....
>>26162126In all seriousness I just thought the be able to go up very fast might be useful.>>26162139So we should make like a grappling hook to drag them back down?
>>26162163What if the pull us up with them though?
>Selling extra parts and donating the proceeds to rebuild London>Agreeing that Japan should have sovereignty over a weapons platform that we need to increase not only global security, but also our own margins.Jaegers aren't cheap. If we keep doing things like this we'll all be out of a job. And if we're out of job, who's going to be there to protect London next time?Need I remind you gentleman, the last time we didn't look out for our own interests the PPDC dropped us for a ridiculous barricade? At the moment we're an international contracted security force, that is able to hold itself above sectarian and nationalist interests. We cannot compromise ourselves in the interest of being 'the good guys'. It hurts everyone in the long run. Our bottom line is of critical importance when that same bottom line is what's keeping the world safe.As discussed in a prior meeting, we have enough cash for two Jaegers. One is now contracted out to Japan, which leaves Europe in the lurch. The second one should be stationed there. Ask Spain and France for industry, basing leases, and cash. Sell Kaiju parts to China, use the money to repair Crimson Typhoon. Step up our recruitment drives. We need teams on standby. We need to get the naming drives up and ff the ground. Earlier we discussed a partnership with Coca Cola. Buy a bottle of coke, use the code to vote on a name. The pilots of Crimson Typhoon won't be piloting for a few days. They should be frontlining PR. Also, they like Basketball. See if we can launch a Crimson Basketball Shoe Line.
>>26162139Harpoons maybe?Something similar to Coyote Tango's cannons, but designed to work in combination with another Jaeger that beats the Kaiju to death while the other pins it down.
>>26162139>Developing ways to force flying Kaiju to the ground would be a better use of resources.Methane canisters.Causes a massive difference in air pressure that renders flying impossible. It's hypothetically what causes planes to crash in the Bermuda Triangle.Also highly flammable.
>>26162172I had the same thought when I typed that.I'm not really sure what to do about it.
>>26162163>>26162172The first flying Kaiju demonstrated the ability to easily lift Gypsy Danger, so we know they can lift a Jaeger. Harpoons/grapping hooks not an option.>>26162186Liquid nitrogen filled missiles to restrict target movement. Or just the Ice Katana. Really, we should keep the chest-caster. It's a good surprise weapon during grappling. Gypsy Danger's chest blaster proved that well enough.>>26162187Liquid nitrogen missiles, launched from ships and ground bases, to freeze their wings.
>>26162099Hell, a kaiju could probably JUMP over the wall. Or climb. The wall is a shit.
>>26162227Or they could just do what the other did and just walk through it.
>>26162085Probably a lot. Like, anti-matter reactors or cold fusion alot. Getting that much steel and titanium flying would... be impressive.3 days till next incursion. Cherno is now operational again. Typhoon is undergoing rapid repairs. Breacher Omega is 12% complete. There's unusually strong signatures from the rift, sighting worry. The UK's economy is rapidly deteriorating, despite international aid. London was their biggest economical focal point. Ireland has begun construction of their own Jaeger, codenamed 'Drunken Lass'
>>26162181Where are we building our base in Europe? I like that coke partnership ideia.
>>26162181Economically, we have China and Russia kind of on our side. We should focus on appeasing them, possibly getting some more ties to Australia since they developed most of the tech to go inside Striker Eureka (and we could use the advanced industry they must have). In regards to Europe, lets get in good with western Europe, since we probably have a fuck ton of good will from Britain (which in turn is probably giving us p;lenity of good will among the various commonwealth nations), Ireland will probably be shitting itself and will be glad to help fund us if anything major comes up and mainland Europe (specifically France and Germany) are going to be tying everyone together and funding their own programs. Get in good with them, and we'll go far.
>>26161184>French JaegerName it Sacre Blue
>>26162248Well I didn't expect to have flying jaegers by the next attack or anything it was just a long term plan.
Wait, you guys gave Japan control of the new jaeger?End of Evangelion, here we come!
>>26162181Advisor, I'm not exactly sure how we'll be able to train any new recruits we manage to get without proper facilities. Unless we can get the Europeans to lease us a military base to use as a training academy for their permission for us to build a Shatterdome, I don't think we'll be able to get our fresh-faced rookies ready for going up against 2500 tons of terror.
>>26162252Straight of Gibraltar.
>>26162252We don't have one secured yet. The Azores was looked at as a nice option. Lovely island. It's about 1/3rd of the Atlantic away from Europe, 2/3rds from America. Not ideal. Ideal would be a fleet of Jaegers on each coast, like in the good old days. But it'll doRemember gents. When we were a fully funded organisation we were still struggling to keep our Jaeger numbers up. We can't afford to blow our funds on Humanitarian efforts. We need a damn nest egg.>>26162259Economically China is a great option, as is Japan. Russia we're a bit neutral with, I think. We have yet to maningfully interact with them.If we could get Germany on the hook we'd be set. Luckilly, hey, there's an EU. If one country falters they all stumble. We should inform the EU we'll be needing space in the Azores for Shatterdome, as well as 400 million dollars (iel; two Jaegers. Or one Jaeger and alot of research.) That'll be the cost for providing overwatch for Europe. If they want to raise hell about it, remind them that London was a freebie.
>>26162248>Drunken LassPlease, please, please tell me it has a gigantic shillelagh.
>>26162328Why not Azores? It´s right in the middle of the atlantic.
My face when they make a Carrier Kaiju that launches other Kaiju out of its maw or something. Like ballistic missiles from a submarine-style.Or a carpet bomber Kaiju.
>>26162248Alright. Do we have funding to build the prototype mass-production model Jaeger, based on what we've learned (Use what we have left of Gipsy as a base, give it a single plasma caster, possible ability to mount the railgun)
>>26162263I like this. Either Sacre Blue or Mon Dieu.
Call up the pope, ask him for a Crusade against the unholy Kaiju and watch the funds pour in.
>>26162248Get a crew over to Ireland, and make some friendly contact with the drunkards. If we can point out some key information in fighting Kaiju, along with at least attempting to establish a system to work in tandem with them during an attack, we could save a lot more lives rather than two hands not knowing what the other is doing.
>>26162368I just imagined like 2 otachis coming through that are pregnant with quintuplets
>>26162345But Ireland is part of the EU and it´s already building their own Jaeger. And im guessing Ireland can´t built it without EU help.If we need money, what about Africa? Angola and such are very rich countries.
>>26162397Be sure to name the new Jaeger 'Knight Templar', or something along those lines.
>>26162345>>26162181IF you'd paid attention, you'd know we only sold off the parts of Typhoon we COULDN'T return to duty, meaning we lost nothing and gained PR.The Japan thing I agreed with you with, I suggested future R&D and commitments on at least one new mass production model.
>>26162397This. Let's get the religious leaders of the world on the line, have the Catholic Church spearhead a donation drive to the London Disaster, and to lend his full support to us.We did just protect a South American location, and the current Il Papa is fond of his homeland.
>>26162390If we name it Mon Dew I can guarantee a sponsorship. >>26162397That could actually work. Especially with all the Catholics in South America and the Philipines
>>26162419I don´t think that will work so well. Maybe with a Jihad, but a crusade...
>>26162411One country developing one Jager is not sufficient security for a whole continent. We also have more expertise in these matters. We give them our offer, and sweeten the deal by saying it comes with free consulting. This way Ireland can make a better Jaeger.
>>26162424Or the ones in souther "Murricka, do you know how many rich, religious, republicans would donate to look 'Murrika STRONG
>>26162248Can we set up drones above the rift with a giant spike with a tracker in it? Doesn't matter if it gets destroyed, as long as we get the tracker on it. I wanna know where these fuckers are at all points in time.
>>26162424We're a major international mercenary organization. Stooping to silly puns and coloring our mechs for money will make us the laughing stock of the world. No go.

>>26162414I know the parts couldn't be saved, but the money from them could've been used for, say, research and development of faster Jaeger transportation. What's better, rebuilding London, or preventing Liverpool?
>>26162447>rich, religious, republicans>CatholicI think the word you're looking for is Protestant.
>>26162419Why not do one better and have the Pope bless the newest Jaegers?
>>26162477Nice. But now everything is going to look like bloody Striker Eureka.
>>26162494Guys cut the crusade ideia, this is not the middle ages, most people won´t relate to it.
>>26162494Im not sure we want any one religion to endorse us when we have to do business with the entire world.
>>26162519Bullshit. Catholicism is one of the world's biggest religions. If there was a holy war, people would fawn behind it.
>>26162504Striker Eureka isn't exactly a bad design, and a Jaeger that's built for fast moving and rocket-assisted combat maneuvers should naturally draw a lot of inspiration from the fastest Jaeger ever.
>>26162490Sorry bout that, they're all kinda cut from the same cord.
>>26162527Then try to get all religions in on it. Call on the Dalai Lama, call on the Pope, call on every religious leader that their is to make our mission seem like not just one God's work, but all God's work.
>>26162548I would be fine with that.
>>26162548I'm pretty sure we can work through the Anglicans. And the Anglicans have a wonderful relationship with the Catholics these days. Be careful with the Dalai Lama though. We don't want to upset China.Who is a central figure in the Muslim world?
>>26162504I...actually really like this idea. It'd get us a lot of backing and pull things a little closer to home for people who might not otherwise feel attached to the Jagers. I'm not saying they should be, but...well, if we're going to appeal to the masses, we might as well try to get them to admire us, I guess.
>>26162529Most catholics don´t see their church like that anymore. War is not a thing the church represents.
>>26162577Hence why you have them spearhead the humanitarian efforts of our organization. Not only does it make us look better, it saves us the much needed funding, AND brings in new donations. If we're the good guys of the world, the people who call out against us (I'm looking at you, Fucking Israel), can't do shit to us!
>>26162559I did. I'm just trying to say we should use more than the Pope.>>26162575Islam will be tricky. The problem with them (and Hindu) is that they don't have a central leader. Instead, the best thing would be to likely reach out to each individual government (as government and religion are closely intertwined) and try to convince them.
>>26162576through what? Individualized Jaeger's per country?>>26162577less of a holy war, more blessings that basically mean religious people see us as sanctified by the Church to defend humanity.
>>26162605I agree with that. Just not the crusade ideia.
Forgive me if this has been asked before, but "Why London?".Seriously. Kaiju traveling half way around the world for a sneak attack? Something about that doesn't add up.If they wanted to get around the Wall, there are plenty of closer targets that they could have hit.
>>26162622The Pope is a greatly respected man, as well as a diplomat, have him do the legwork for us. There's no reason we need to spend our time on this when he's got the backing of the largest institutionalized religion in the world backing him.Can we have the ISS focus on tracking things out of the rift? We could have a Global Satellite Uplink doing nothing but tracking Kaiju.
>>26162632Ask that kid in biology and listen to him ramble. He'll make about as much sense as the damn Kaiju do.
>>26162575Closest we get to is the King of Saudi, seeing as he's the guy who holds the keys to Mecca. That said, Islam doesn't have a central religious figure like the Pope- your best hope of engaging Muslims is to tie in the Kaiju to apocalyptic imagery, and sell said imagery to Islamic authorities. You might not need to sell it to every single Muslim, mind you- the concept of Ummah in Islam should ensure that if you can make it catch on in central Islamic nations*, the community should do the rest of the work for you.*Middle East: Saudi ArabiaSoutheast Asia: Malaysia and IndonesiaAsia: China
>>26162628Well, the idea is moldable. We don't have to hold it to a single thing. Merely getting his blessing would be a huge boon worldwide.
>>26162632Logistics is confused about this as well. The only viable explanation is it wanted to cause chaos and fear, and perhaps disrupt society. But they couldn't have the knowledge to do something like that... could they?
>>26162666Have we done a quick scan to make sure another rift hasn't opened in the Atlantic?
>>26162653Has a Kaiju attacked any Muslim country? Like Indonesia?If so, there´s your fuel.
>>26162666Do we have sanction on our design for Drunken Lass, shown here? >>26162477
>>26162632>Forgive me if this has been asked before, but "Why London?".Find out if someone's doing anything shady Kaiju-related in London.
>>26162666'Let the nerd drift with the brain they said, it can't go wrong they said...'Anyway, can we have an update on our current stats, what Jaeger's we've got/any new pilots and shit, bases and political connections, etc?
>>26162714Add a power Sheleighly (Like the Adeptus Arbites) and the actual Blarney stone taken from the castle and built into it, and you've got a deal.
>>26162711I'm sure Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore would want to get together and build a Jaeger just in case. I know you can definitely count on Malaysia to fund a Jaeger, if only to puff our chests up and say "Look, we're playign with the big nations now!"Seriously, we bought two submarines. The heck are we going to do with two submarines?! Sink Singapore?!
>>26162666>Logistics is confused about this as well.Glad I'm not the only one.>But they couldn't have the knowledge to do something like that... could they?Well, what do previous attacks tell us? Is their destruction random and animalistic, or is there previous evidence of Kaiju intelligence and targeted attacks?
Let's get on the horn to Taipei and the major Tech centers of the world, offer them full support for a discounted price if they help us with tech advancement, building new tracking systems for Kaiju, and helping us advance our Jagers.
>>26162771The straits of Malacca are on of the most critical shipping routes in the world.Let's ask people with a vested interest in that route for some funding. The insurance companies would see reason. All it would take is one Kaiju to bankrupt the lot of them.

>>26162714The Drunken Lass's overall design is out of our control. It's in Irelands hands. We can only offer advice.>>26162725Gimmie a moment to put it together>>26162706Nothing there it seems.>>26162663Come to a consensus on this religion thing and we'll see what happens.1 DAY - Typoon is again operational, Breacher Omega is at 30% readiness
>>26162848I think the consensus is 'begin working through religious leaders, while not trying to get anything so polarizing as a crusade.' We have the Anglican church loving us right now. We therefore have good relations with the Pope, who is in the running for 'most influential man in the world'. Indonesia is a Pac country, and has the worlds largest muslim population. We can use this as an in with Muslim nations. Don't bother with the Dalai Lama. It'd just upset China. He doesn't have the best income net as it is.
>>26162848Alright.OFFICIAL VOTING FOR RELIGIOUS ACTIONS------Here's my proposal; we approach the religious leaders/closest thing to religious leaders of the major global religions (The Pope, the Clergy in places like Egypt, the Dalai Lama) and we ask them for their blessings in this war. Perhaps name a Jaeger or two we get with funds after their religion (I.E. Knight Templar). This would get us greater funds through donations and greatly increase our popularity amongst the more religiously inclined of the world.RESPOND WITH A SIMPLE YES OR NO, THEN VOICE ANY CONCERNS.
>>26162848So, as far as the religion thing goes; Call the Pope up and ask him for his support, and to get the major leaders of the world's religions together in 15 days time (Have to be respectful) and to spearhead the humanitarian efforts of our organization. We need them to make us look like the squeaky clean good guys instead of just a bunch of mercs who'll let people die by the millions before we're getting paid.
>>26162931>>26162936Aye on those.
>>26160234What do they have to be sad about? Oh sure, they lost a bridge, but Breaking Bad is on that night! Have they no priorities?
>>26162848Status on the Canadian Jaeger?Get with Japan and China together to see if we can get the land near the Hong Kong shatterdome to set up a Jaeger production line, with options for them to purchase part of our run for their own defense.I'm hoping we'll be able to produce a new design from scratch at a rate of at least 2 per week, with the ability to upgrade the line to produce either a MP version of Striker or a new MkV Jaeger once we have enough MkIVs up to sustain losses while we convert the line.Check on R&D to see what they have, if anything.Include biological research on this.
>>26162926Agreed. China is too valuable of an ally, especially considering how our only Shatterdome is on their turf. We can't piss them off.
Mechlab division doesn't have any opinions on religious affiliations, except the note that we don't want to have to build angel wings onto a Jaeger.
Is there any reason we can't have jaegers just waiting at the rift before the kaiju have a chance to come through and then beat the shit out of them when they do?Also I'm casting my vote for the religion plan
>>26162993While it would bring in funding, we understand what the issues would be.
>>26162936>>26162926Both of these.No on the naming anything remotely religious.We can´t have Divine Justice or Unstopable Jihad be destroyed, thats bad pr.
>>26162831Yeah, but we've got more than enough boats to patrol the place with Indonesian cooperation. Unless the pirates are packing battleships, I don't see the need for subs.
>>26163021Having Jagers on constant alert costs money. Money we don't have. Add in pilot exhaustion for being constantly jacked in, and it's no bueno, plus, we're vulnerable around the rift. Add that to possibility of another one opening up...>>26163034We could have something a little more subtle if needed however.
>>26163048The subs are for tracking, and not what I'm talking about.I'm saying we can be funded by businesses, not just governments. Let's get Maersk NYK and Exxon on the line.
>>26162725Crimson Typoon, Cherno Alpha, and Striker Eureka are fully operational. Breacher Omega is 30% constructed. Status on Maple Fury and Drunken Lass is mostly shadowed from us by their respective nations. We have 16 Submarines on patrol in all waters, 300 heavy lift helicopters, a Shatterdome base in Hong Kong, a half built Shatterdome in Tokyo, 342 million USD, and a massive merchandising effort underway. Nation status:Japan, China, Mexico, UK: ExcellentAll other Pacific Rim nations: GoodAll other global nations: ModerateIsrael: Bad (Oy vey!)PPDC: Low
>>26163034I have to agree. Plus, if we were to name them something more subtle (Like the aforementioned Knight Templar), then that would incite anger in the Muslim communities due to the part the Knights had in the Crusade.Nay on the naming them after religious figures. I doubt a Robo-Jesus would be popular with the Muslims.
>>26162931 100% AFFIRMATIVE
>>26162931No. It seems like we're grasping for straws. With all the "networking" we've been doing with the world governments, It's already getting hard to shake the mercenary image.
Its time we started thinking outside the box. Golbi desert, its quite a whole lot of hot nothing. Lets use it to our advantage. financial advisor, how much money we got to get a decent base going? Nothing to house Jaegers just people and a modest factory. We should think of building rockets. >>26163099What is the status of poison research and rods from god, rename the project to Thor's hammer.
>>26163097Use Drones, not actual people. The loss of life looks bad on our part if we have available technology.
>>26163099>PPDC: LowWhat are these fuckers even doing without our machines. Surely they can't be wasting more money on new walls. If they are, I suggest we call them out on it.
>>26162931I believe pacifist religions are not likely to help. That being said, having the backup of militant Catholics...THAT could be useful.
>>26163097If we're trying to gain the support of companies, why not get on the horn with PMC's? Not for their small arms, but for help with logistics--helicopters for airlifting our Jaegers to problem areas, tankers and cargo ships for easier transport of supplies to and from the present and future Shatterdomes, stuff like that? In return, we give them our breakthroughs in some of our science fields, since we can't readily give them anything else.
>>26163099Priorities:Recruiting more pilot teams.Construction of a European ShatterdomeConstruction of a training facilityMore income.See if Nike wants to sell Typhoon Basketball sneakers. What if Pilots did podcasts? Could be a good vehicle for ad revenue, as well as publicity. And whatever the research boys want to focus on, as long as it helps Jaegers, instead of detracting from them.>>26163149Use whatever. Just ask these industries if they'd be interested in our security. They're loaded.
>>26163151Probably creating Not Eva's
>>26163099Israel can suck a Jaeger sized dick. Who the fuck are they to insult and accuse us. Next time they do, make a point about how you're there to guard all people, not just a 'divine' group of people who refuse to even try and defend the world from a fucking apocalypse. Also, lets get in good with the Commonwealth Nations, bouncing out off the UK. If we can get in good with AUS/NZ, Canada, any number of african nations, we'll have an excellent net of support if anything goes drastically wrong.
>>26163099Since we still need money something fierce, and the *ahem* questionably legality in trade of Kaiju parts is being done by mostly criminal organizations, we should get in touch with the CIA for a full dossier on everyone who's scavenging the kaiju's and demand a cut. But let's do so quietly...
CREATE ANOTHER JAEGER. We are critically under staffed.Fairy GraceHigh speed, high mobility Jaeger.
>>26163185Yes, that would be a good idea. Give them the ideas we can't support, and get support from the things they have. Why should we be building a space based weapons program (Because I' sure the USA will have no problem with that.) When someone else can do it better, and cheaper? etc.,
>>26163210I feel like we're becoming the mafia.You know if the mafia had giant robots.
>>26163220How about No because:A) that name sucksB) we're already constructing, what another 2?
>>26163189Financial, Mechlab wants to know the practicality of using Advanced Materials like Aerogel-X in Mech construction. We've worked out that a given Jaegar could move about 25% as fast if we had access to Aerogel, but is it financially practical?>>26163220We're already working on building Breacher Omega. We only have the factory capacity to build a single Jaeger at a time at this rate.Mechlab recommends opening contacts with North Korea. They can provide all the unskilled labor we could possibly need for welders, construction workers, and the like.
>>26163138Are we calling the project Thor's hammer or Mjölnir?
>>26163220Fuck that. So far most of our Jaegers are based around quick movement but unable to take a decent hit. Get another heavy hitter like Cherno, but updated, and use it in tandem with lighter mechs.
>>26163185I hope this doesn't become like NASCAR, with jaegers plastered with advertisement stickers.
>>26163291>MjölnirWe should ask the financial advisor if we can market Mjölnir.
Say hi to your superior big-brothers, Jeager Corps
>>26163220That would alienate the "Hetero-normative" community. Should go with something generally considered speedy, but without identifying with particular groups. Like Alpha Thunder or First Strike.>>26163202Yes, we understand Isreal is being retarded, however we're doing our best not to antagonize. If they get worse, we can point out that most of the other nations approve of our existence and how we go about our business, and they're acting much like how Iran treated them. That'll put a bee in their bonnet and make us look better.>>26163290What are the possibilities of Mechlab using Helium 2 based Pneumatics (Nearly frictionless from what I understand) to make a faster Jager?
>>26163138The Poison research is going very poorly. It seems that Kaiju Blue counteracts anything we throw at it on the biological level. We even tried a run of nanobot tech and it ate it up. The Rod of God program is running into similar problems. Getting into space will require an absurd amount of support and funding, and it won't be too accurate with newer, faster Kaiju.
>>26163291>Thor's HammerBut that's already taken
>>26163290Um... maybe? Probably not. It's not available on the open market, we'd need a dedicated producer. If we can get someone to make it for us in an industrial capacity, then yes.
>>26163222In addition, Advisor, we might be able to make use of any training areas they already have, possibly expanding their academies for our benefit. Conn Pod simulations, tactics classes, fighting style training--say, we still have Gipsy Danger's old pilot sulking around in his bunk, don't we? Why don't we get him to train the new rookies, do something useful?
>>26163333Also; Let's put a block on Games Workshop before they try to sue us for stealing their Titans. Also; Let's go about acquiring the Mech-Warrior line, and sell it as the official Jager videogame.
>>26163333Hammer of Dawn. to rip from CoG
>>26163314Why do I fear if rednecks got giant robots they would use them to race instead of fight with them
>>26163321You can't copyright a piece of ancient culture.So yes, we could market it. We can't have exclusive branding to it, but that's not a real issue for us.
>>26163341>FafnirBut Thor's hammer is Mjölnir
>>26163356Hell, if it'll get him to stop picking fights with the Stryker kid. Sometimes I think we're running a daycare I swear to god...
>>26163374We had been discussing something of the sort, with a Mini-Jager competition during the Supebowl to increase funding. It wasn't viable at the time but it could still bring in quite a bit of revenue.
>>26163189>Priorities:If I can interject, we need to figure out why the Kaiju hit London.They could have struck anywhere else in the world, even in the Pacific, and we still would have had such a slow reaction time that the target city would have been devastated.Our priorities should be:1) Improving response time. - Having our only world-wide base in Hong Kong means lengthy reaction time to a vast majority of Pacific coastline.2) Figuring out why the Kaiju swam halfway around the world to attack an Atlantic city. Any why that specific Atlantic city?
>>26163390That's the name of the two HGRs that make up the Fafnir.
>>26163364Equip Jaegers with Laser-Designators, the ability to aim an orbital cannon manually would increase accuracy immensely.
>>26163411Real Steel here we come.
>>26163414To strike terror in the human population?To inflict the most damage against human lives?They could have easily attacked NYC though. Or Rio. Cape Town. Barcelona.Why London?
>>26163414Chances are not only because it was a populous city, but it was to test our response time, and just how effective diversionary tactics would prove to be.Sadly, the answer is very.
>>26163336I'm pretty sure we should move to plan two. Then, build an orbital shatterdome. We house one Jaeger in orbit and drop it on emergency situations.>>26163381I think the golbi desert to be the best launch site, it is inland and is in the middle of nowhere, it will take some 15 launches before we get the place set up. But we could send a jaeger in parts, (limbs.)Which brings me to the next plan. Interchangeable limbs for jaegers.
>>26163333Helium-2 pneumatics would make a faster Jaeger but would also increase maintenance costs beyond what we consider practical.>>26163307Mechlab is now working on a new heavy hitter design. We may be producing a Mark 4 equivalent to Cherno. Back with the design in a bit.
>>26163336Would it be possible for us to set up target practice simulations for our current crews? After the Hansen's rather...terrifying...critical shot in London, I'd rather we not have to shoot through one of our Jaegers to kill a Kaiju.
>>26163427Oh my Bad still it's not Technically taken I vote for if we ever Create a Scandinavian themed Jager we call it something like ''Thor Odinson''
We need to get the Jagers prepped, the countdown's almost over. Also; Votes on getting the rights to "The Final Countdown" and having a commercial with Coca-cola to support the Jagers? Text "63841" to Coke's number to donate $5 to the Jager Campaign.
>>26163505>>26161140Pick one cause we've got plenty.
>>26163505Hell, a lot of BT designs would make great Jags.
>>26163505Gungnir Defiant has my vote.
>>26163567oh christ. So this is how the world ends. Not with a bang or defiant screams. But with a text marathon and the belated changing of channels.
>>26163636Oh shit. Jaeger and Kaiju mix? You think the survivors would do something with Gypsy Danger's parts? Shit, although I don't think there'd be much of it left.
>>26163567This would be a fantastic way to raise money, although a bit apocalyptic. >>26163645This is how the world is saved
Why not create a Jeager that can fire at a distance with advanced weapons?
>>26163645Sadly, yes. We're reduced to such tactics until we have the funding for at least enough to have 10 Jagers and multiple shatterdomes. >>26163663It's to be implied that we're the last thing holding off the apocalypse.>>26163673It's in the works, Japan is working on a Railgun for us now.
>>26163663Somehow, being owned by Coke seems more terrible than the end of the world.
>>26163660Clearly we need to learn how to grow weapons from kaiju parts and attach to them jaegers, so we can have proper monster robot vs robot monster battles
>>26163673Because that makes sense and doesn't sell toys to manbabies. Now let's post images of our toys for manbabies.
>>26163685You know what, on second thought, not that one.Mainly because it is firing fucking nukes out of that cannon there.
>>26161140>PAYDAY MASKEDThat sounds ridiculous, even for a Jaeger name.
>>26163673Because if a Kaiju closes the distances a long-range damage dealer will be useless. If you look at the most successful Jaegers designs--Cherno Alpha, Striker Eureka, even Gipsy Danger--they were brawlers, with any long-range weapons being a complement to fists or blades.
>>26163711its funny because in the book that has this image as its cover, an old guy sells toy versions of Titans.
It is time. The alert sensors ping. Another double event. Something big this time. Looks like one of them is the first ever Class 5. They both appear to be rapidly heading towards Vancouver before they seem to disappear from sensors. Canada offers 130 million USD to have a Jaeger or two moved to Vancouver till they're accounted for.
>>26163569None of those are Specifically Scandinavian Themed though.>Defiant Odinson? (Plasma Caster Hammer?)>Loki>All-Father Crow> Jörmungandr Slayer I'm bad at this Bonus points if the Thor Jaegar goes up against a Serpent Kaiju
>>26163722all the more reason to use it. I'll admit, I may just be running through my games list and matching which ever seems kind of appropriate.
>>26163695Having a sponsor =/= being owned. All it means is that if we call the jews dirty assholes on national television again, we'll be losing money that we wouldn't have had in the first place.We aren't artists, we're not going to lost our soul over this.

CHEST MOUNTED "KILL" MISSILES INSPIRED BY STRIKER EUREKA.THE MARK 4 "HEAVY HITTER" IS AN ATTEMPT TO COMBINE EACH OF THE BEST FEATURES FROM JAEGERS OF THE PAST. CHERNO ALPHA'S "REACTOR ON LEGS" DESIGN, GYPSY DANGER'S TWIN SWORDS, AND STRIKER EUREKA'S WINGED PROFILE. THIS RE-USE OF EXISTING DESIGN ELEMENTS ALSO MEANS THAT EXTANT FACTORY SYSTEMS CAN BE RE-USED, AND MACHINERY AND PERSONNEL TRAINED TO WORK ON EXISTING JAEGERS CAN TRANSFER OVER TO WORKING ON THE NEW MODEL IMMEDIATELY.THIS DESIGN IS AS-OF-YET UNNAMED. MECHLAB HAS DECIDED TO ALLOW MEMBERS OF THE PROGRAM TO NAME THE NEW JAEGAR.Go ahead and vote. Let's use the same system we used to name Breacher Omega
>>26163737Class 5? Shit. Send Striker and Cherno. Have Crimson scrambled and ready to defend the homefront. I don't like the idea of going up against a Class 5.
>>26163099Begin prototyping and production of a Jaeger we can build on an assembly line, at the same time pitching to China, Japan, and maybe Australia for assistance in building a facility.It'll be a Mark IV Jaeger, an all-rounder with a mount for the Japanese type railgun.
>>26163673If the Imperium can have massive success with titans that use both long range and close range weaponrywhy cant we build jeagers that can do that too?
>>26163740Many of the past Jaegers didn't have names that specifically matched their home nation. That said, it's a good way to get a funding. 'Oh no, Freyas Folly has fallen in battle. Donate now to see your namesake back on her feet!' Not a bad strategy at all.
>>26163762Do we have any support vehicles for these two?
>>26163737Also; Is Maple Fury up and running? We'll need them on this one.
>>26163737Striker and CHERNO STRONG, pray for the best. Ask about MapleAlso we could use some of the captchas lol.
>>26163737Get all Jaegers loaded for rapid deployment, but inform Canada that we can't deploy without concrete evidence. We'll begin moving but can't guarantee.We need tracking, so get every nation we can to assist.
>>26163737Status on Maple Fury?Also this >>26163815
>>26163740>PAGAN FROST>IRON RUNE>TITAN ELDER>HUNTER GIANT>GOD RAVENetcetera, etcetera
>>26163737That's unfortunate. Is Maple Bacon up and running yet?We should take the 130 and stand point on Vancouver. Since we've been offering a discount for countries with an active Jaeger program, tell them that for us to commit three Jaegers will only cost them 190.
>>26163831That actually looks great.
>>26163737Get Crimson and Striker out to Vancouver, and leave Cherno on standby if things go sideways.
>>26163811Yup. Good book IMO.
Do we know yet that the jaegers need a kaiju to get through the rift? I doubt taking the portal would stop the aliens from opening a new one but when we get the chance we could take the portal down to give us some down time to make more jaegers.
>>26163453Listen to yourself!Testing our response time...Diversionary tactics...Biology, is there any evidence that this kind of higher-level thinking is possible from a Kaiju?Because we're talking about actual use of strategy and tactics by the Kaiju if PR is right about this...
>>26163836Mjolnir's ThunderIron FenrirBifrost Guardian
>>26163913'we' have tried sending Jaegers through the portal during our PPDC days. For some reason they never work. Bombs don't work either.
Rolled 10>>26163831Frosted Adjudicator
>>26163877Nah, it lacks the short, sharp and most importantly, ever so slight silliness punch of a Jaeger name.Two syllables in a name mainly.CHERNO-ALPHAGIPSY-DANGERSTRIKER-EURE-KAetc.Crimson Typoon can suck it.
We need something big to fire at range along with what we havewe have a sword, fists, feet and whateverBut at range all we have is missiles and a shitty plasma gun, we need a heavy laser or mega bolter or railgun or something
>>26163925Assuming it's not there will get us killed. Assuming it's there doesn't cost us anything, keeps us on our toes, and might just save the world. It's just a little extra effort.
Rolled 2>>26163845Of the names thrown around lately, Mechlab thinks "Gungnir Defiant" is the best
What have we heard recently from research about Kaiju biology?
>>26163973My vote goes to this.
>>26163952How about a net? Something to hold the Kaiju down for a bit. If it can be restrained then it can be moved or even captured.And if we are building giant robots I'm sure we can build a giant net launcher. Hell, even bolas would do wonders.
>>26163991It's got the right sound to it at the least. That sort of awkward and heavy thing.Jaegers aren't poetic, their names have, traditionally, not been that either.
>>26163991I second this.
>>26163973>>26163991I like both names but Borealis Stalwart seems to fit this jaeger to me.
>>26163925Logistics is right. Based on past attacks and their locations, it can be proposed that the Kaiju are trying to eliminate the human race as a whole. They have been whittling our Jaeger fleet down ever since that first retaliatory strike made by Brawler Yukon in Vancouver all those years ago; I guess it only makes sense that they send their biggest, newest beast as an answer.
>>26164037How good has the world gotten at making carbon nanotubes?I say we make a net out that stuff. We might as well electrify the net while we are at it.
What is the pan pacific defense force doing right now? Building more walls? Can we get them to help us in any way?
>>26163952Japan is working on a railgun. Mechlab is working on possible ways to mount it to a Jaeger.Everyone, we need to focus on the Category 5 that's heading for Vancouver. We should send Striker and Cherno, they ought to work well together, and we'll need our best on the job if it's gonna be a Cat 5.>>26164093Carbon Nanotubes don't conduct electricity.
>>26164093Yes. A big electric net. Might subdue it long enough for a quick kill. At the very least it should buy us some time.
>>26163762>>26163814You deploy Cherno and Striker to Vancouver, Just outside the wall. You ask about Maple Fury and get a 'we'll see what we can do' back. Crimson takes an overwatch position at the Shatterdome and waits. After several hours both Kaiju lifesigns are picked up approaching Vancouver rapidly. Roll d20 for combat!

Do not suppose anyone has proposed creating a sort of satellite zeus weapons system that can be used by Jaegers for a sort of indirect fire system.
>>26164106Incorrect, sir!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FullereneScroll down to the "Carbon Nanotubes" section.The conduce VERY well.
>>26164106What about mounting the railgun on the back, and then have the mech go down on all fours? Railgun+Cannons for launching Nitrogen Containers or the freezing agents we discussed earlier, advanced targeting arrays, and expert marksmen?

>>26164128FUCK THAT FUCKER IN THE FACE.Call for Naval gunfire support from the russians and any stand-off guided muntions from the air forces around, SCALP EGs (Storm Shadows) and/or Slammers and/or JSOWs should at least cause SOME damage, especially the cruise missiles.We'll need ever iota of firepower to win.See if the Russians can send us a Bear squadron with AS-15 "Kent" with conventional warheads for support, and/or American B-1s or B-2s with air-launched stand-off weapons.500 pounds of shaped charge isn't much to something this big, but it SHOULD feel it.

Rolled 2>>26164317Forgot my dice
>>26164330I'd be fine with that, as long as we could make it look like a Winged Hussar. It'd need a Lance.
>>26164330Like this with legs and a torso?
>>26164330Too vulnerable on the sides IMO. Perhaps something that is carried by a Jaeger that can easily be ditched if it gets in close with something
>>26164330Spider shaped is better. More stable, harder to grapple, and can hit from below medium-height waters.
Rolled 16>>26164342God no.It'd be like the horse Gundam level of silly. A four legged walking weapon platform I could get behind though.
>>26164376More legs to repair, easier to break, needs to be able to elevate to attack a more mobile Kaiju.
>>26164302That's a long term goal. We're in mid battle now.>>26164330Current design calls for a separate "gun" and power reactor not attached to the Jaeger which can be held in a Jaeger's hands and fired, then set down if the Kaiju still managed to reach grapple range. Allows for a single railgun to be used by multiple Jaegers, and doesn't interfere at all in a Jaeger's close combat capability.
>>26164376I could get behind this. it would also provide a stable firing platform for a bigass railgun.
>>26164376Spider would be nice. Would possibly even excel at grappling if its legs are strong and maneuverable enough. Are the Kaiju known to be vulnerable to any types of poisons?We could give it the theorized web launcher!
>>26164418Non-human shapes cause too much mental strain on the pilots to be of any practical value. Our carryable gun is a much cheaper alternative, since it doesn't require an all new Jaeger to be built to carry it. Any Jaeger except Cherno Alpha can carry the gun.
>>26164418You guys are forgetting that we're using mocap mech.We can really only use the human chassis at the moment.Just use a shoulder mount or use a fire team model once we have enough Jaegers and the problem will solve itself.
>>26164474[spoilers]Then we need to breed spider men to pilot it![/spoilers]I guess that makes sense. Shame
>>26164474Shoulder mounts aren't good because they produce too much recoil, and can destabalize the Jaeger that fires it.
Rolled 2>>26164446We're fucked.
>>26164510....god dammit I suckBut seriously though. Spider people. Think about it
>>26164518You'll note I said it'd be preferable to use it as dedicated fire support.Like a broadside, where a CC Jaeger is a Crisis Suit.
>>26164518Does R&D have any info on the universe at the other end of the rift? Or why the kaiju have so far only been coming in ones and twos?
Rolled 7>>26164524>>26164446Fucking terrible rolls.Roll for Fishing!
Rolled 3>>26164128I'll give it a roll since the rest are so low.
Rolled 10>>26164587Not currently. I might as well give it a roll with how fucked we are. Pray for 20's.
Rolled 13Gave Stalwart Borealis a color scheme to fit its name.Also rolling.
It's over. We lost those Jaegers.
Rolled 15>>26164664At least that's average.Rollan in honor of my CENTURION ALACORN
>>26164587Some of our more eccentric mathematicians say that the frequency patterns seem to suggest the possibility of a triple event. God help us if they're right.
Man Cherno is just doomed.
>>26164154>>26164165>>26164168First 3, not too hot. Ho' doggy.The Class 4 Kaiju emerges from the water, spewing acid in Cherno's direction. The Jaeger barely dodges as the corrosive substances impacts the wall, rapidly corroding it away. Striker steadys out and lines up its railgun to fire... when suddenly massive tendril like appendages wrap around most of its body and drags it under the water. Striker flails about and begins cutting at its attacker, the Class 5 monster codenamed 'Behemoth'. Cherno enters close combat with the class 4, tesla fists slamming into it, staggering it back. The creature roars and spews another blast of acid, catching Cherno's left leg with a bit of the goop. Cherno stumbles, off balance, and the Kaiju looks ready to pounce and take it down when a massive superheated chainaxe suddenly cleaves into the beasts head, shredding it's brain and taking out most of its jaw, causing it to collapse into the ocean, dead. A titanic Jaeger, a bit taller than even Cherno Alpha stands, gleaming in the sunlight, a giant red maple leaf emblazoned on its chest. Maple Fury has entered the fray. Striker Eureka is rapidly being dragged underwater, the massive pressure the tendrils are causing resulting in armor breaches all over the mech. The crew desperately opens the missile hatch and fires a barrage of rockets, shredding a number of tendrils, but also heavily damaging the Jaeger. Behemoth roars in pain... and lets go, rapidly swimming away. The beast is in retreat... And it's moving faster than any Jaeger would be able to persue. It releases a flash of blue light several miles away and disappears from sensors. But more reports are flooding in... the small, dog sized skin parasites that so far have proven relatively harmless seem to have changed... The ones from the Class 4 are rapidly crawling through the acid hole in the wall and entering the city, attacking everyone they encounter. there's at least 200 of them loose, and they're tough.
Rolled 15>>26164729alright. We can fix this. Call up our old bosses, tell them to get their shit in gear and start clearing out all those fucking parasites.
Rolled 9>>26164729Deploy Conventional forces to clean up the Parasites get Eureka to a Shatter Dome for repairs and get Cherno and Maple on standby for deployment
Rolled 16>>26164729C'mon, rolling.
Rolled 10Coordinate with the Canadian National Guard and Army, along with the PPDC. We need boots on the ground, and possibly evacuation procedures in case Vancouver is lost. Priority is to establish a perimeter around Vancouver to contain the spread of the bugs.We're not going to be able to engage the Cat 5 yet.Mechlab is rolling for immediate repairs on Striker's first fixable issues, with the repair drones and greaseheads we earlier mentioned putting on station.
Rolled 15>>26164729By the way, whatever happened to the older, decommissioned Jaegers? Can we pull them up and refit some of those things?
Rolled 16>>26164729I know theres nothing we can do right now but is there way to design the jagers so it would shock the shit out of a kaiju if it happens to get grabbed by one?Also we should contact the army to help deal with the parasites.
>>26164785>>26164794>>26164823>>26164824For fucks sake, why do we get these after the combats done?
Rolled 8>>26164729Get Cherno on search and destroy duty on those parasites! And someone in LOCCENT get a goddamned line patched through between Maple Fury and Striker! We need the two of them to coordinate in crushing that Category 5!
>>26164851Was thinking the same thing.
>>26164861Bad idea. If those fuckers swarm up the Jaeger, we lose one of our best pilot teams. Leave it to the people we can actually afford to lose.
>>26164861Striker is heavily damaged, It wouldn't stand a chance.
Rolled 19>>26164851Because the Dice gods have determined that Kaiju are superior Lifeforms?
>>26164851It was for dealing with the parasites but yeah would have been nice a good while ago.
Rolled 13>>26164861Cherno's weapons aren't precise enough to handle the parasites. That's an infantry engagement. According to these rolls, Vancouver Police and the Canadian National Guard are utter badasses.
>>26164861Jaegers are wholely unsuited to that kind of job, and we cannot afford even the smallest chance of losing our pilots. We'll just have to let the Canadians deal with this one.
>>26164902>19Dammit where was that roll 30 mins ago
>>26164861We arent going to be catching that class 5 anytime soon, CHERNO STRONG is slow as all hell, and its taken some damage. RIght now we need to consolidate resources, repair our jaegers and see if we can learn anything from this engagement with it.
>>26164701Is there any proof of this past the algorithms? If not, is there any way of obtaining it?
>>26164729Oh thank fucking god, nobody dead. What do they drink in Canada? I don't give a fuck, send them a damn case. The parasites are unfortunate, but we can't do much. Keep an eye out for the runner, but it's not like we can persue. Keep Cherno on sight to guard the breach, ask the Canadians if we can use their facilities to get Striker up. It'll be faster if we can cut out transit time.Use our helicopters to assist with parasite removal.
>>26164822>National guard>NATIONAL GUARDYOU FUCKING AMERICAN CUNT AT LEAST GET OUR ARMED FORCES RIGHT, IT'S THE RESERVES.Anyways, Jaegers can't fight at that level>>26164729Get immediate drone support to Striker and Cherno, and get all pacific fleets searching.Contact all governments with long-range aircraft and get them to get ALL strategic bombers in the air loaded with conventional cruise missiles, and all naval strike airframes loaded with whatever torps they have, have them start immediate combat patrols.Get Typhoon on standby.
>>26164985Once again one of the Kaiju surprised us. We need to somehow track them better.>>26164729And get as much info as possible on that blue light
>>26165023Sorry about that.Unrelated: Blast the "Attack on Titan" theme song from Cherno's speakers to boost morale in the Vancouver battle.
Rolled 20Do repairs while scrambiling Cherno and Alpha, have Fury tag along, their problem's not over yet, and we gave them a pretty hefty discount (Only 65 mil a mech! Find that class 5 and destroy it.
>>26165116Seriously, where WERE these rolls earlier?!
>>26165116We should make sure we procure some of these new parasites.If Kaiju defense is our bread and butter, we should be staying on top of new developments. We don't need to develop the conventional armies to put these parasites down, but if we had the conceptual plans *to* take them down we could sell that information, or trade it for industry and tech.
>>26165133Our anger pleases the dice gods
Also - What about the previous idea of getting blessing from the world's religious leaders? Didn't we all agree it was worth a shot?
>>26165133It's pacific rim.We don't get to do well, we get to DESPERATE STRUGGLE TO VICTORY.We need to research how to close the rift, at least for a little while. If we can get enough time to get more Jaegers, even if they come back, we can get enough platforms up to keep the fight up while we figure a final counter.Plus, if we can get through the rift, we can take the fight to the enemy (Ideally AFTER we have our own generator, so we can RepRecReq damaged units and casevac pilots.
Rolled 4>>26165167Fuck Dammit good thinking anon, Imagine the development's we could have by developing Bio-tech along the lines of Kaiju Physiology
>>26164851All right all right i'll put this towards the infantry engagement. NATO ground forces entrench and start a cleaning effort on the parasites. It's highly effective, but they're dug in good. It could be months, or even years before Vancouver is 'safe' to live in again. The little shits breed like rabbits, and they seem to understand rudimentary guerrilla warfare. It also seems like they plant parasitic eggs in bite victims, increasing their birth rates. Most people were successfully evacuated however, which is a massive morale boost. >>26165041It seems to be a natural EM/ECCM field... An organic Electronic warfare suite masking it's movements...>>26165116Grrrr dat nat 20... Fine. Cherno and Striker undergo speed repairs from drones onsite with Fury providing overwatch. Just remember Fury isn't ours, it's Canadas.
>>26165196>Getting through the riftThat's impossible, we've already tried that. Nothing gets through, it's a fools errand.Getting to El Dorado is more plausible. Now if we could delay it for awhile, that'd be fucking swell.
Rolled 9>>26165235Of course it's not ours, but we did just save their Maple Bacon, and there's a Class 5 out there. If we went home now (We did our Job) they'd be fucked.
>>26165235Well, see if Canada is willing to work with us to find it and kill it.Anyways, have research prioritise Anti-Kaiju ECCM and anti-rift tech. Take people off Fusion and MASER projects if necessary, but if we can't TRACK them, we can't FIGHT them.
>>26165235>parasitic eggs in bite victimsgod damn it we're fighting cloverfield
>>26165251We don't know how the Kaiju get through, that's why I was saying research HOW they get through.If we can figure that out, we can even just drop modified nuclear Shkval torps through it.We know you can get through, the question is just how, and we need to know.Wars aren't just won by killing the enemy, logistics and mobility are also paramount. If we can figure out how to deny the enemy it's mobility by closing or delaying or destabilising the rifts we'll have a much easier time.
>>26165277No, we're fighting the fucking Chryssalids.Actually, see if anything else from the class IV and V match up to any "fictional" monsters from our world.Maybe they've found the internet and are taking inspiration from it.
>>26165311>Maybe they've found the internet and are taking inspiration from it.Oh dear god.Japan is fucked...
>>26165235Actual that speedy recovery gave me an idea.We need to build an jeager whos job is to act as team medic.Make quick repairs and to supply the other jaegers with more equipment.I'm not sure what kind of weapons we should put on it to discourage the kaiju from attacking it.
>>26165349yeah, nah, that aint going to work, and is just a waste of a Jaeger
Rolled 9>>26165349Giant. Fucking Defibrillator paddles. Studies show that people like comically oversized things. So a huge injector needle full of Liquid Nitrogen and Shock Paddles would win out.
>>26165349I don't think that our staff can handle that.
>>26165311>Chryssalids.>MFW>>26165311>Maybe they've found the internet and are taking inspiration from itHAHA Time to construct Gurren lagann
Mechlab recommends putting Stalwart Borealis into production as soon as Breacher Omega is operational.We should also see if there are any old Jaegers that have just been deactivated rather than destroyed. Didn't one of our old Mark 3s lose an arm off of Anchorage but survive mostly intact? Could that one be reactivated?Not sure what happened to Gypsy Danger in this timeline
Here's a world map, with Vancouver pinned. Start thinking of places the Class-5 Kaiju would attack, possibly Japan?
>>26165389She was used for parts at the very beginning.
>>26165389the first thing we did in this quest was canabalize GDCT and CA are wearing its swords and plasmacasters
>>26165349Wouldn't work, but we could have a floating warehouse follow in their wake for on scene repair.Like Doc mentioned earlier, interchangeable parts. If an arm is broken, it'd save so much time to just take it off and blot a new one into place.
>>26165390>California>Japan>Korea>China>Indonesian Islands>Australia>New Zealand>>26165389 We cannabilized Gipsy danger also I can't support Stalwart Borealis if It doesn't have either a Tesla Hammer or a Plasma caster Hammer
>>26165390That's the sad thing, they attack where we least expect, that's still densely populated.Send a warning to Jakarta.
>>26165458That'd also work against it in combat, though. It'd be much easier for a Kaiju to tear one that's interchangeable off, than one that's not. Eh, No such thing as a free lunch. I guess.
>>26165390It's easier to look at with a map of the Pacific Rim.Looks like the West Coast of NA and the Hawaiian Islands are the next likely targets.We should warn the US and think about moving Crimson Typhoon to Honolulu.>>26165458Mechlab would need a hell of a lot more funding to get a mobile base. We'd want an Aircraft Carrier to put the base on.
>>26165390Los Angeles, Chile--hell the entire coastline all the way down to Peru. Any of the major cities dotting that coast are a potential target. Also viable are Japan, Korea, the Philippines, even Australia and New Zealand
>>26165458Yeah interchangeable parts is what i had in mine when i said quick repairs.Frankly we need some more shatterdomes.
>>26165390Hell it could attack down most of the south american/central american cost, get those guys on over watch.>>26165458That seems like painting a giant target saying "Hit this thing, it fixes other things and it'll slow us down"
>>26165458That requires parts commonality, hence, a mass-production model.For Mark IV, I think we decided on it last through, along with Centurion Alacorn for the Mark V chassis.
>>26165486I wouldn't actually recommend using it in battle, but if we keep getting multiple Kaijus... Well, let's just say being able to capitalize on a 20 minute lull might be a key skill in our future.
>>26165479I second the notion to move Crimson Typhoon to Honolulu.
Wu- UH OH folks I'm being dragged off. Ima archive this. DISCUSS PLANS! i'm sorry for having to cut it short, but I had a great time! There won't be a thread tomorrow(today? damn timezones) because I work late and I won't have any time but definitely the next day. Thanks for a great time everyone. I'm liking all of you :3
>>26165349>Medic JaegerIf we could create some sort nanomachine paste that can readily repair our Jaegers in the field and administered as some sort of a paste or fluid, I think it'd be useful for this mech to use. The nanomachines could be self-replicating, self-terminating, and can recreate any vital internal or external mechanisms in the Jaegers.
>>26165516Best way to do it would be to buy the USS Saratoga from the US Navy. It needs to be an aircraft carrier because we need a big flat surface to work on, and the Saratoga is decommissioned, not doing anything. Mechlab could conceivably convert it to a mobile Helicopter Carrier/Jaeger Repair Center.
>>26165524Well if it was a paste all the jaegers could just keep some on them.
>>26165563almost like the platelets in our blood.
>>26165571Nanotech is not yet that advanced. Can't be done. Cheaper to invest in the Saratoga repair center than it would be to develop this nanite paste.
>>26165597What about the threat of Kaiju attacking the Saratoga?
>>26165611it wont be going anywhere without a Jaeger, it will follow them around, and we should probably put some railguns on it
>>26165458Something like the S.h.i.e.l.d Helicarrier?Maybe with a some kind of rail to launch the Jaegers?
>>26165597Kinda what I figured but who knows how many years we will be fighting the kaiju its something to keep in mind if nanotech does get that advanced
>>26165645thats what I was thinking anon.
>>26165389Mechlab, I don't think we'll have access to the Oblivion Bay, the Jaeger mothball fleet, since it falls under the purview of the PPDC, who we so unceremoniously cut ties with. Unless we repair ties with the PPDC--or use a PMC or three to raid the facility--we won't have access to any of the wrecked/retired Jaegers they have rusting away there, in the ruins of San Francisco.I've heard the area makes for some great urban exploring, though, if one can get past the security.
>>26165611It should be within 5-10 nm, it won't be doding around their ankles.>>26165644Railguns is a good idea though.>>26165645The aircraft carrier should wrk just fine. All of our thaters are in the ocean.
>>26165644But that's one less Jaeger on the battlefield to fight the Kaiju, it's stuck babysitting.
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Collective+Game%2C+Pacific+Rim+Quest%2C+Jaeger%2C+Kaiju%2C+Giant+Monster%2C+Mech>>26165523dem upvotes to beat down the 'I hate quest thread' people always makes me all warm and fuzzy. BUH BYE GAIS.
>>26165611>>26165670It's not a Jaeger, it's a converted aircraft carrier. Much cheaper. And the Saratoga will be kept way far away from active combat. In combat, it'll be tens of kilometers away, sending in recon choppers and repair drones. It won't come in until all the Kaiju are dead.
>>26165670no you misunderstand, it is designed as a support vessel for the Jaegers, it goes where they go, so it should never be far behind (but far enough to not attract the Kaiju)
>>26165704I was referring to this post:>>26165644
>>26165645>>26165470Namefagging for future threads
>>26165668I vote against railguns. If we put railguns onto the carrier, it might attract unnecessary attention by the Kaiju if it has offensive capability.
>>26165719But yeah, answer's the same. Keep it dozens of miles away from the fighting and launch repair drones.>>26165741This.
>>26165741They can be added safely I think, as long as they're only used defensivly, again combat should never happen.
>>26165741Railguns for Self-defense as the Heli-Carrier is obviously to delicate for direct action
If we can't blow up or collapse the portal, maybe we can BURY it? Or perhaps set up some sort of minefield around to at least partially damage the Kaiju before they can reach land.
>>26165770>combat should never happenWhich means combats bound to happen.Not that I'm disagreeing with your plan I love me some railguns
>>26165741something that big is going to attract their attention anyway, and you want to leave it undefended?
>>26165798>>26165704Could we develop plasma mines? For this >>26165807
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qbQrJljXJvMQ1jxGaVIhc_KVA5IzrzRXYgCGbkVaGNg/editHere's a list of Jaegers mechlab knows about. If anyone else wants to submit design ideas, my skype is in the E-mail field.>>26165798We'll have to look into mounting railguns on the Saratoga. It might not be practical.
>>26165827No such thing as a free lunch. We risk heightened attention, or risk no defenses.
>>26165840Wouldn't covering it in concrete be cheaper? At the very least' it'd buy us time to react after the next event.
>>26165807and what would be of sufficent yield to damage these Kaiju? Nukes? remember these are 50ft Monstrosities. How are we going to power this damn Heli-carrier anyway?>>26165840maybe but as it were we just barely have plasma guns.
>>26165875We have to find some way to delay further events. Eventually it's going to be a swarm that we can't handle.
>>26165859but leaving the thing defenseless is just stupid and makes it a more juicy targetput rail guns on it and use them for defense only, and keep the thing out of combatthinking that if you leave it undefended they won't want to chew on it is retarded
>>26165875Concrete tends not to stop Kaiju, from what I've seen >>26165887>>26165875Could we agree to put this on a back burner, in case our plasma tech becomes advanced enough?
>>26165887Are we going with the heli-carrier? or the converted aircraft carrier?
>>26165887The Helicarrier is just silly and expensive.
>>26165922Heli carrier if we want to be sillly and Mil Wank. Converted Aircraft Carrier if we want a more grounded feel. I don't know that our QM prefers a tone.
>>26165922Group consensus appears to be helicarrier For Rule of Cool, regular carrier for practical
>>26165922Converted aircraft carrier. Mechlab does not consider a Helicarrier technically feasible.However, Dirigibles which carry and launch Repair Drones are an excellent idea and very practical.
>>26165909That makes little sense tactically, why would a Kaiju target a defenseless ship when it's main priority is destruction in high-populated zones. Kaiju will forget about the city once the Jaegers drop in, offensive combat machines. If they see the carrier with weapons, they're going to consider it a larger threat to them. Plus, railguns aren't going to do anything to a Kaiju, only slow it down, possibly.
>>26165968They only take up space, and add weight. We have to consider ammunition storage, weapon storage, etc. Those spaces can be used for more repair equipment.
>>26165916Agreed on the Back-burner for now.>>26165922Either really hell we could just use a Aircraft carrier and modify it for our needs.Either way we should have a few Ships on the Sea in case something happened to the Heli-carrier>>26165929>Silly in a Quest/movie about 50ft Mech's and Kaiju
>>26165770Speaking of defensive railguns- does the "Wall of Life" even come equipped with weapons? A giant ass wall and they don't think to mount rockets, railguns, and etc on that motherfucker? If the PPDC is still pushing for the Wall of Life (hopefully congruently with a renewed funding for Jaegars) then some huge weapons should go along with it.
>>26166003We can mount the railguns on zeppelins. This gives us a way to engage flying Kaiju, along with providing long-term tracking capability and offsite fire support. The zeppelins can also launch repair drones.
>>2616602550ft? Cherno's 280ft! It's even more crazy~
>>26166043This. This. This. Even if the railguns aren't effective at taking down flying Kaiju. We could damage their wings enough so they have to ground, allowing the Jaegers to finish the job.
>>26166041I have no clue, thats PPDC's thing, mines just making sure that the Jaegers run.
>>26165968Because the Kaiju are learning, Thirteen. They have been learning, and they are continuing to learn about us and our tactics, just as much, if not more than, we have been learning about them. Need I remind you that over the past five years we have lost twenty-six Jaegers, over half of the former PPDC fleet? They have been adapting to our strategies, learning ways to circumvent our tactics, and are now hoping to overrun this world's defenses with a two-pronged attack from both the Pacific and Atlantic.
>>26166080The walls are useless, anyways. You keep repairing those Jaegers.... You're invaluable to our team! ...although I don't think I remember your name, you're the guy from engineering, right?
>>26166098With this in mind, Mechlab division recommends a fleet of at least twenty Zeppelins, nuclear powered, with railguns and the best spotting equipment we can give them. Designs to come.
>>26166050was an Approximation>>26166043I don't know Zeppelins are very Vulnerable due to their poor Manevuerability and if their Ballon gets popped that's it their gone
>>26166098Ugh... Don't remind me of our failures. I'm fully aware they're learning. Priorities...priorities. It's tough to understand how the Kaiju operate in a sense of threat-awareness. We have to look at this from every single perspective... a tough thing to do, considering we don't really understand the Kaiju's intention aside from destruction. They seem to understand the Jaegers are their main threat. How long is it until they develop countermeasures to our current Jaegers?
>>26166121Exactly my friend, and let me tell you, that Kaiju Blue does some nasty shit your circuits.
>>26166154Mechlab is an idiot.
>>26166154Perhaps an A-10 Warthog with a single central mounted railgun?
>>26166158Vulnerable, true, but the additional capability to watch a Kaiju from the moment it emerges from the Breach and track it, which a plane can't do because they can't hover, is worth the risk.>>26166181Why do you think that?
>>26166181We're all idiots... but that's why we're here. To put all of our idiotic ideas together. To create something so crazy, that it just might work.
>>26165968>Plus, railguns aren't going to do anything to a Kaiju, only slow it down, possibly.Uhh, what do you think Striker used in London to kill that cat4?
>>26166192Or a modified Boeing 747, with underslung railgun, they're quite large planes, and we have no need to get in close to land/sea based kaiju
>>26166154And you said my Idea's were stupid do you even Zeppelin?>>26166192What are Helicopters/Vtol's?
>>26166222Zeppelins can hover longer than a 747 can orbit
>>26166159Their countermeasures to our Jaegers have been sending out specific Kaiju to counter specific Jaegers. Remember London? How that Kaiju took off with Crimson Typhoon?Now we all know that Crimson is one of the most maneuverable Jaegers we have left, second to Striker. It took the fight to the air because, well, we had no way of countering that. The only reason Crimson is still in the Shatterdome right now is because the Kaiju didn't count on Striker's railgun shot, however sloppy it was.
>>26166025>Internal Consistency. Besides having giant robots and aliens from outside space, Pac Rim is pretty grounded. Not that I'm right and you're wrong, it's just that aesthetically, I don't think it fits. Maybe because having an awesome heli carrier takes the focus off of how awesome the robots are. My vote is against Heli.
>>26166214You're implying that we put a railgun fitted for a Jagger, a much BIGGER weapon. On a carrier? The amount of space that would take would only allow one or two.
>>26166272Jaeger*(Corrected it accidentally)
>>26166251But it only needs to be fast, get into strike range, fire two-three shots and provide overwatch. A zepplin is slower and archaic.
>>26166222You're basically saying we should take a 747 and turn it into a bigger version of an AC-130?Well why stop at a 747? Why not use the biggest plane out on the market, the Airbus A380?
>>26166294Works for me, I just defaulted to 747.
>>26166294>A380son, that aint big, try an AN-225
>>26166205It doesn't need to be crazy to work, it just needs to be good. There's alot of be said for using things that are known to work in new ways, rather then just making things wholesale.Now, do you think we can use Jaeger footage to make a Zero Dark Thirty Documentary? What can we declasify? Maybe base it around the Cherno team, that way we can have the romantic love angle Hollywood likes.
The main reason Zeppelins are a better idea than helicopters is that Zeppelins address our current issue; we HAVE choppers, but they can only stay up so long. A zeppelin can tail a Kaiju for weeks on end, while a Helicopter or Jet can only manage hours at best. If we had Zeppelins, we could have tailed that category 4 all the way to London. We could be tracking Behemoth right now.That's why we need the Zepps. To chase them when they run.
>>26166272..... Carriers are huge. If Cherno is 280, then Cherno is one quarter then length of the Saratoga.
>>26166340This idea is promising. The only problem is Zeppelins are fragile. The second there's a flying Kaiju, we have to distract it away from the Zeppelins, or it's not going to end well.
>>26166320Alright then one of those, I just want airborne railgun support for our guys on the ground. >>26166340like a weather balloon used by weather services with an IR tagging system or something similar.
>>26166356I wasn't incorrect, it could hold one or two. The amount of space needed is...tremendous. What about it's original purpose? Repairs? We have to look at this from a practical standpoint.
>>26166380Disregard that - I made a mistake. It could hold more, I would suggest two at maximum.
>>26166340What's the speed of a Zep compared to that of, you know, any thing else use in the modern day?>>26166366Don't forget Kaiju with acid. We've seen that. We may see jumpers, or throwers, or ones with actual projectile weapons like needles some day.>>26166375This is a fine idea. It's cheap.>>26166380Is it? I have no idea what the spacing requirements for a railgun are. I do know that Striker can only hold six rounds.
>>26166269Well then I guess it's a matter of Aesthetic taste, regardless It should probably be but on the Back-burner along with Plasma mines for now.>>26166332Hmm this may be a good Idea and at the least it will pump us some Good Pr and some funds.>>26166340Doesn't address the fact Zeppelins are Ineffectively slow and Archaic in design not to mention a Massive not to mention Fragile target for Kaiju and it would only take one hit on a Zeppelin to finish it.>>26166380we could have an accompanying fleet>>26166375The weather Balloon is a great Idea for tracking Kaiju and will probably not attract much attention.
>>26166400So maybe twelve rounds tops, but most of the space would be used for repair drones and possibly some form of platform used for repairs in transit.>>26166424>>26166400Glad you think so.
>>26166366That's why they have railguns. Punch a hole in the wing and a Kaiju will not be flying. It might even die from the impact, though I wouldn't count on it. That's when the Jaegers move in to mop up.>>26166380The Saratoga won't need railguns for a simple reason. If the Kaiju want to destroy it, they'll attack it from underwater, where railguns can't hit.>>26166400>What's the speed of a Zep compared to that of, you know, any thing else use in the modern day?No data available. No one's built a zeppelin with modern technology. Given the speed Kaiju move at, fast enough, I think.The weather balloon idea is basically the Zeppelins but without the railguns. It will work, and we should put it into production immediately. We'll need some way to tag the Kaiju. Maybe a little dart launcher near the Breach? Make it too small for a Kaiju to notice.
>>26166400>>26166395Refer to that. I corrected my stupid mistake.
>>26166356>>26166340Namefagging for the future, but this is the guy from last night talking about discounts to nations with their own jeager programs and other such awesome ideas.can you please tell me why were diverting so many of our resources to having total global coverage, when theres only one rift in the pacific? Or did another rift open that im not aware of, in which case Johnson is about to be scrubbing toilets with toothbrushes...
>>26166472Because a Kaiju attacked London. They could strike anywhere, and until we get the weather balloons running, we have no way to know where they'll hit. They could move past Australia to get at the Indian Ocean, past South America to get at the South Atlantic, or under the Polar Ice to get at the North Atlantic
>>26166472Because we keep losing the fucks.London was hit not even a week ago, and we've got one MIA right the fuck now. Because he teleported or something.I think we're more then well off with the subs that have been lent to us. But looking into other options isn't a bad idea.
>>26166468Could we track ammonia levels? considering Kaiju blood is based around that, a large clump of moving ammonia would be easy to find. Tidal patterns could help as well, and the oceanographic institute has several submersed sonar stations, if we could use them to track Kaiju noise, then that may also be viable.>>26166472So we can better anticipate where Kaiju are heading and have forces ready there. We only have three Jaegers up right now to protect the entire world, having them in the right place matters.
>>26166468http://www.northropgrumman.com/Capabilities/lemv/Pages/default.aspxmight want to take a look at this, could be adapted to provide some of the utility you squints are talking about
>>26166543Plus, more and more Kaiju are emerging every event.
>>26166468>http://www.modern-airships.info/en/zeppelin/fossett_record_2004.htmlAccording to that it is 135 km/h>>26166543an Intriguing Idea prehaps we could track the Ammonia levels though i have no idea of how to practically do so.
>>26166548Could we use these to carry and deploy Jaegers? If we could keep each of our individual Jaegers airborne and ready to drop, we could cut the heavy lifting choppers out of the equation entirely, and only put in at the Shatterdome when we need repairs. This could hugely boost our worldwide response time.
>>26166588Their payload isn't large enough I think. But they make fantastic targeters.
>>26166588Nevermind that, they only have a 7.5 ton capacity.>>26166566135 km/h is plenty fast to chase down Kaiju.
>>26166525>>26166530I would argue that thats even more reason to keep our Jaegers on the Pacific rim. Placements in Austrailia, Antarctica, South, Central, and North america, Alaska, China, and Japan. If one gets past we can chase it down, but we know where theyre coming from, the closer the Jaegers to the rift, the less time it takes to intercept versus having to move it half way around the world to intercept. This could change once more Jaegers are commissioned, but as it stands we have 3. We cant afford to have one just chilling in Europe in hopes that they attack Europe.>>26166543Sonar and tidal buoys seem like theyd do the trick.
One of the boys at Mechlab has an idea. Codenamed "Remora", it's a UAV that waits until a Kaiju has left the Rift, then attaches itself to the Kaiju and broadcasts a homing signal that satellites and weather balloons can track. Too small for the Kaiju to notice, cheap, and they don't need any new technologies developed.
>>26166612Itd take 264 to move a MkIII
>>26166675Promising - I would support this.
>>26166675I think i could get some of my gearheads to get some prototypes up and running.
>>26166612Not really compared to modern aircraft.>>26166675How can we practically apply this considering we don't already have eyes on the rift?
>>26166715launch them from our submarines at distance using modified torpedoes.
>>26166710Get to work on it. We need some sort of launching base near the rift, small enough to go unnoticed but big enough to hold, say, eight of them. Make it entirely unmanned, no need to risk submarines.>>26166715Modern aircraft don't need to stay in the air for weeks on end.
>>26166770Again not the Point>>26166751By eyes on the rift I meant both those in the sky and those Submerged.
>>26166751ROV subs, they can only hold one or two at a time, but we can deploy multiple ROV's from a sub at distance.
>>26166637Yes, our low number of Jaegers is out biggest problem.I think it best to keep one in Europe, permanently. But it should be funded entirely by the Europeans. We need to stress it's best left in our hands, and not theirs. We have the expertise. We can use it for training at the facilities we build.
>>26166814The Irish are already working on one of their own.Breacher Omega is coming along nicely. Once it's done, we can start work on either Robot Rock or Stalward Borealis.
>>26166814Europe is in a dire economical situation as it is..
>>26166770We've been looking into poisons and the like when our new grad pointed out this little excerpt from the MSDS... frankly I dont know how we didnt think of trying this sooner..."Reactivity ProfileAMMONIA is a base. Reacts exothermically with all acids. Violent reactions are possible. Readily combines with silver oxide or mercury to form compounds that explode on contact with halogens. When in contact with chlorates Ammonia forms explosive ammonium chlorate [Kirk-Othmer, 3rd ed., Vol. 2, 1978, p. 470]. Reacts violently or produces explosive products with fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine and some of the interhalogen compounds (bromine pentafluoride, chlorine trifluoride). Mixing of bleaching powder (hypochlorite solution) with ammonia solutions produces toxic/explosive ammonia trichloride vapors. Undergoes potentially violent or explosive reactions on contact with 1,2-dichloroethane (with liquid ammonia), boron halides, ethylene oxide (polymerization), perchlorates or strong oxidants (chromyl chloride, chromium trioxide, chromic acid, nitric acid, hydrogen peroxide, chlorates, fluorine, nitrogen oxide, liquid oxygen). Reacts with silver chloride, silver oxide, silver nitrate or silver azide to form the explosive silver nitride. May react with some heavy metal compounds (mercury, gold(III) chloride) to produce materials that may explode when dry."We should look into injecting this into a specimen...
>>26166841>www.aeroscraft.com/fleet/4576270098that would mean we'd need 4 for a MkIIImuch more doable
>>26166856We can't risk explosions of Kaiju Blue into a city or the environment.
>>26166856>>26166892Engineering's got the right of it. The liquid nitrogen injectors are probably a better choice.
>>26166887We can keep a rotating roster of Jaeger's on "Rapid Deployment" Giving us a better reaction time, but also being able to keep Jaeger's at priority sites.
>>26166855The UK is.Germany, France, and Spain are fine. Ireland is making theirs, that's fine. Why wouldn't we want ours?
>>26166892Not all reactions are explosive reactions, just create explosive compounds.. The idea here is if they contain ammonia, and we convert the ammonia into something else, they might die much like a person with cyanide.
>>26166927I wonder how they'd adapt to that...If this becomes effective, how would they change biologically to counter it?
>>26166962The results of that might be horrifying......
>>26166962im not sure, we never really are when it comes to these things. I suggest we run tests on the lice we recover from the sites. They have the same composition of the bigger brutes.
>>26166908they have approximately a 5000 nm range, meaning a 10000 nm one way trip before refueling.if we station 4 every 5000nm of coastline, we can pass the baton, so to speak.
>>26166989Seconded. Although, I don't believe I have the authority to issue clearance, I'm just an adviser after all.
Let's stick to the liquid nitrogen for now. Cheaper to mass produce, and we've got a lot of it already. Thirteen, talk to the boys in R&D about experimenting on the lice. Any new weapon is a good one.After we've got Stalwart Borealis built for our heavy hitter and Robot Rock built for ranged combat, what other combat capabilities do we need to fulfill? Any big holes in our force we should plug with a new Jaeger.
>>26167067Got it, I'll attempt to get clearance for the Chemistry Department as soon as possible.
>>26167067I believe we should design a new Jaeger after we deal with Behemoth, it may indicate Kaiju evolutionary traits, and thus building something capable of countering it could be a good strategy.
>>26167067We also have Breacher Omega at 30% constructed.
>>26167132Good idea. We should also do something about our Jaegers' outer skins, making them resistant to acid.>>26167166Stalwart Borealis should go faster, because it re-uses a lot of components and techniques from active Jaegers.
>>26167067>>26167110Ill have the lab whip up some of each reagent and send it to R&D.
>>26167189Some sort of base applied to the armor or that we distribute over the armor during combat might be good. We haven't started on Borealis yet.
>>26167189Prehaps we should take samples of the Kaiju Stomach lineing or acid Glands for examination by the Science department and if we're able to replicate it for our Jaegars.>>26167067Agreed for now Liquid Nitrogen seems to be the way to go.
>>26167310WAIT I GOT IT. Ablative armor.
>>26167235I've gotten clearance for you. You're granted to test on 21. of these...parasites. No more. 10 to test one reagent, 10 to test the second, 1 as a control. Until then, I'm going to depart to my quarters, until tomorrow. Until then.Thirteen, signing out.
>>26167322Also, my shift is over, I got to go, best of luck gentlemen.
>>26167360Turning things over to the night manager. Mechlab control, signing off.
>>26167326Excellent. We have 6 hours left on the first mix, 18 on the second. We're going to go with the two that create the most stable products. Until then, get some sleep gentlemen, we have a bastard to kill tomorrow.
>>26167326>>26167360>>26167386>Sleep Cycle Initiated Sleep well Sentinent's.
>>26167067Why is it called Robot Rock? That name is not nearly silly enough for a Jaeger. I dare say it is even a normal name for something. Jesus christ, what kind of pleb tier designers do we have when 'Robot Rock;' is the best we can do.
