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. The Pan Pacific Defense Corps has chosen to stop funding the Jaeger program, and instead focus on building a massive pacific wall, blocking out Kaiju attacks. This wall has been proven to fail, when a Class 4 Kaiju breached the wall in Sydney, Australia, killing thousands before being stopped by Jaeger Striker Eureka. You are tasked with defending humanity from the Kaiju threat. Your resources are limited, and you have little international support or funding. Your only base is in Hong Kong, at the 'Shatterdome', where you launch your Jaegers from.CURRENT JAEGER STATUS:STRIKER EUREKA: FULLY OPERATIONALCREW INTACT (2)SUPERIOR SPEED, ARMOR, STABILITY.

Current estimates predict that the next Kaiju attack will take place in two days. Marshall, what are your orders?
Gipsy Danger is an impressive Jager with a solid history, but the Kaiju aren't patching themselves up and coming at us again, they striking harder each time. Salvage Gipsy Danger for parts to upgrade the other Jager,
>>26143470>Salvage Gipsy DangerYou're a monster but I've no objections.
salvage all use parts to make best mech
>>26143660I know its cruel, but it was the only idea I ha besides following the plot of the movie
>>26143706This is the best answer.
>>26143470>>26143660Very well. You disassemble Gypsy Danger, installing the plasma caster on Cherno Alpha, the Pulse Caster on Striker Eureka, and the chain swords on Crimson Typhoon. All other parts are set aside for repairs. One day until next Kaiju incursion. Japan sends a donation of 2.3 million USD to the Jaeger Project. Current funds sits at 13.4 million USD, a mere fraction of funding when under command of the PPDC.
Are there parts of any other Jaegers we can use?
Let's continue training backup pilots in case something happens to the three remaining Jeagers.
We just killed the main character.Congratulations /tg/, you have surpassed all expectations.
Use parts and funds to commence Operation rock you like a hurricane and build pic related
>>26143779Seeing as we're on good terms with Japan, ask if they can loan us Godzilla. He has the best Kaiju asskicking record in history.
>>26143779We need to come up with a plan on how to turn a profit from the Jaegers.
>>26143779Offer the remaining Jaegers as mercenaries against Kaiju for a ridiculous amount of money. Use this money to build more Jaegers.
>cannibalizing Gipsy DangerYOUYOUDOUBLE HERETICS
>>26143900Perhaps a public service to encourage donations?Send one of them to help with the construction of the wall, it may cost some people some jobs, but the money goes towards stopping the Kaiju
>>26143847A few scattered parts here and there, but nothing much.>>26143868You find a pair for Gipsy's pilot, and begin training 2 other teams to keep on standby.>>26143900>>26143944>>26143952Perhaps a combination of this? Opinions?
>>26143898Why not make an Ultraman?
or perhaps an army of these?
Why didn't humanity just construct more plasma weapons if it work so well against Kaiju?
>>26143988Because Ultramen need to decide to come to earth to help, and then bond/disguise themselves as a human and don't like being public with their identity. Godzilla just sorta hangs out in Japan's ocean until he feels like wreckin' shit or someone steps in on his turf, then shows up and smacks a bitch.
>>26143979Sell off the Jaeger's services, don't do any charity though. Use the money to build bigass guns that we can drop down by the rift and spawnkill things with.
>>26143900Moychandising!Get some studios in Japan on the phone, see if they're interested in the rights to our (Stacker Pentecost's, that is) life story. It's got drama, giant robots stomping Kaiju, everything you could want for a mecha series!Start selling Jaeger action figures. LOTS of Jaeger action figures.License Jaeger Lego sets.That kind of thing.
We could also hire out jaegers for publicity events, it's not "Clean" but it'll net in cash.We could also do corporation sponsors, and set up some sort of ultra pay-per-view jaeger vs kaiju fights
>>26144066then how about getting Kamen Rider J?He's close enough to an Ultraman
>>26143979Televise the fights from start to finish for pay-per view?
>>26144110And make sure to print a super limited run of Gipsy Danger figures, that come with a certificate of authenticity, signed by all of us here at the Jaeger Program.
>>26143288I don't like this quest already if only because we're retreading the whole fucking movie and the op has nothing new to bring to, or make from the setting from the get-go.
I need Frodo in here ASAPWhy didn't they fight with the swords from the begining?Why didn't they have giant robot guns?How did Hannibal, the kaiju reseller, survive in the gut of the baby kaiju until after the fight?How is an organic acid more corrosive than HF?Why didn't the Kaiju make another EMP Kaiju to defend the rift?How could Gypsy Danger operate under water if half it's chest was an air based heat radiator?How could a radiation proof life pod float?How could Mako swim in ~fiifty pounds of steel with no trouble?Why weren't the Jaegers slower underwater?How did an underwater nuclear explosion push all the water away without creating a vacuum? If the other Jaegers weren't nuclear, what the fuck powered them and why would they downgrade?If the new Jaegers were shielded from the radiation, why couldn't Major Black Man pilot one?Why is Guillermo del Toro so bad chornologically with his plot lines?How could the Kaiju commune through the Rift if it was closed?Why was Mako such shit?Great fun though.
>>26143288>Not mention of the microwave gun on Gypsy>No mention of Cherno's incendiary weapons>No mention of Crimson's light head armorU BEST BE JOKING NIGGER.
Of all the things OP could do, he retreads the movie and makes a corral with it.I didn't know how /tg/ can fuck up a Pacific Rim quest, but here we are!
>>26144161Which is why I suggest we make Nether-gundam the protag mech
>>26144184Also, the microwave is a one-off weapon.
>>26144167>If the other Jaegers weren't nuclear, what the fuck powered them and why would they downgrade?Because every time a Jaeger was destroyed it made Godzilla stronger. And when you're making an unstoppable Kaiju stronger, then you need to change your plans.
>>26144096Very well. Jaeger's no longer move to defend, they move to make money. You provide every nation in the world, as well as the United Nations with a hotline, and charge 50 million (good amount?) for Kaiju removal. >>26144110You being contracting massive amounts of merchandise to factories. You also contact a major hollywood firm and pitch an idea for a 'Pacific Rim' movie. They seem interested.>>26144167Shhhhhhhhh youSensors indicate a Kaiju incursion from the rift. A single Class 4 Kaiju is rapidly approaching Japan. It impacts the wall and beings the attack. Conventional naval and air power is deployed to slow it's attack.
>>26144217was that literally about one throw away line explaining that? I can't believe I missed that
>>26144233Wait until they transfer the funds before we move in. BUSINESS IS BUSINESS
>>26144233Tell Japan you could take take of the problem for 200 million and 20 scientists plus use of their facilities. Or let them fight it out, have operational Jaegers ready.
>>26144167Swords cause a LOT of Kaiju Blue to be released, which is worse for the environment than being next to a nuke going off.
>>26144233Assist Japan, they get a freebie for their unsolicited donation. Send Cherno-Bill and Crimson Typhoon out there, leave Striker Eureka to defend the base.Set our research to figuring out how to make gun emplacements that can sit on the floor by the rift and kill htings when they come out.
wow, what a horrible decision for a starting point. Fuck the seven years of the kaiju war we could have played around in, let's drop ourselves off at the end of the war where our only options are to ape the movie or go extinct.
>>26144282and plasma cannons don't do that? because of the cauterization or something?>2 down
>>26144282You neglect to provide an explanation as to why they didn't use their swords when they started losing Jaegers faster than they could build them. Also, why they didn't just build big guns.
>>26144309That was mentioned on the Gipsy Danger's blueprint poster, yeah.
>>26144308This.OP is thinking he can wing it, but all this random is making the quest go the shotter by aping the movie.
>>26144151>printCast, rather.>>26144167>Why didn't they fight with the swords from the begining?Genre convention, it's a fucking Super Robot movie, and as a rule, in Super Robot series, the heroes NEVER use their trump card until their back is completely against the wall. It's like asking why they didn't just form blazing sword right at the start of every fight in Voltron and end all the episodes in like five minutes.>>26144341>why they didn't just build big guns.Kaiju Blue, Kaiju Blue everywhere.
>>26144233WHAT IF we design and sell personal Drifting equipment for couples and the such?
>>26144270>>26144273>>26144292Japan transfers 150 million USD and offer free use of Japanese industry for the next 3 months if we provide support. Cherno Alpha and Crimson Typhoon are deployed. Kaiju 'Maw' notices there approach and moves to fight. Roll d20 for combat.Also, everyone seems to assume that I'm going to follow the movie storyline. We've already deviated dramatically. Quite simply, it's not going to follow the set plot from Pacific Rim. It's merely a starting point. I'm not going to have the world end in a few weeks if you don't do something, i'm going to have an apocalyptic war of humanities survival play out. It's in your hands. I didn't want to do it mid war or even early war because of general lack of info, and this provides a greater challenge. Give it a shot. If you don't like it, don't participate. If you do, it's time for some mech combat.
>>26144428Newt cobbled drifting gear together from lab supplies, and improvised a kaiju jack in less than half an hour. There's probably a civilian version already.>You will never be the loving married couple who pilot Cherno Alpha

>>26144407>Implying Kaiju Blue is worse than having massive damage done to indsutrial and population centers and building fuckhuge and fuckcomplicated giant robots that get killed on the regular.Anyway, who's going to roll?
>>26144448I move we use the industry to research new ways of killing kaijusHas anyone tried using poison on them? There are poisons on earth that will kill an elephant with less than a drop of it, surely a liter or two would kill a kaijuHell, you could even have long range missiles outfitted to deliver the poison, by the time it reaches the wall they could be dead or severely weakened.
>>26144053I wondered this exact thing. Conventional forces are proven effective, if not slow, at killing kaiju. For the same price as a Jaeger, we could have 40+ Plasma Canon tanks ready to fight in a month's time. More than enough to kill any kaiju that shows up, I'll bet.Mind you, I love mechs, but the Jaegers are just wasteful when you know you can kill them with tanks. Hell, build a satellite defense system with some Rods from God and we can play Vlad the Impaler with their silly invading asses.
>>26144591I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who was like "Oh, another Kaiju? Guys, realign the appropriate satellite. Geeze this is getting annoying."
Rolled 10>>26144558I move for a more efficient method of killing. Use Japanese funding and facilities to build killer satellites. Dropping tungsten round via magnetic accelerators from orbit on Kaijus as first method of defense.
>>26144591>>26144626Sooo I was not the only one?
>>26144554Yes, generally making an area made uninhabitable is worse than having the buildings destroyed.
>>26144626Newt did still drift with the brain, if I wanted to be an arse, I could go m-muh adaptations.
>>26144626>>26144644>>26144662Rods from god are shit for damaging things under water. Seriously, you get this explained to you in EVERY PacRim thread, and you still try to act superior.
>>26144644Fuck you just reminded me off pic related
>>26144558BLOOD COAGULANT!10 points to Gryffindor if you get the movie reference
So...Whats keeping us from putting plasma guns and shit on top of Cherno's hat?He could be brawling a Kaiju and shit, and the guns on his hat would just be blasting away at the Kaiju.
>>26144448If we're moving in to japan, keep an eye out for Godzilla. This is his territory, and I'm pretty sure that if we end up in a crossover movie, Godzilla's buddy is the one who ends up dead/wrecked. It happened to Mothra, It happened to Rodan, It happened to Mogera.Also, no trying to kill Godzilla if he shows up. Then you just end up double dead.
>>26144716The movie uses a 'miracle mile' scenario every time where the kaiju are always in water shallow enough to wade in before they hit land. Thus, we pin then to the pacific seafloor and send a bomber to saturate the damn thing with thermite bombs.Sorry, but when a tactic is superior, it just is. Deal with it.
>>26144716oh sorry did I say we have to shoot them when they are under water?
STOP DISDAINING THE SANCTITY OF THIS MOST HOLY AND LAUDABLE FILMYOU SPEAKEST HERESY MOST VILEWHAT ARE THESE SATELITES?MEN, WOMEN, EUNY'UCHS AND BEAST-CHILDREN, WE MAKE GIANT ROBOTS ON THIS GOOD ROUND EARTH GIVEN TO US BY THE GODS, WHICH Y'KNOW AS IT HAPPENS ARE PROBABLY GIANT ROBOTS THEMSELVESPROSTRATE YOURSELF AT THE FEET OF GIPSY DANGER, YOUR LORD AND GOD
>>26144746Because that isn't patriotic enough, comrade.
>>26144479Crimson Typhoon ducks in to deliver a blast from the Plasma Caster to the Kaiju, while Cherno Alpha powers up its Tesla fists for backup. Maw pounces as the plasma blast is fired, grazing it, but not taking it down. Its momentum causes it to impact, slamming into Crimson Typhoon. The Jaeger stumbles back, but regains balance, slamming its fists into the invader repeatedly, throwing if off. The Kaiju recovers and tail whips Typhoon, breaching the outer armor and causing it to stumble back. Cherno Alpha steps in, slamming a 415kv fist into the Maw's head, eliciting a screech of pain and confusion. The creature topples, and Cherno begins pummeling it with it's tesla fists. After a few minutes, it's all over. The twitching Kaiju is finished off with a few plasma rounds to the head by Crimson Typhoon. The Jaegers return home, with Typhoon having sustained significant damage, but is still fully functional. You begin to research possible alternatives, such as poison, and Rod of God technologies, but you stonewall. It would appear the PPDC is angry over you cutting all final ties with them and forming a merc group. They have imposed sanctions on you, and ordered a return of 'their' Jaegers. Other world news:Hurricane forming in south Atlantic. Tensions rising between the Eurozone and Middle East over oil rights, tectonic warnings in the Atlantic ocean, Canada begins production of its own independent Jaeger, codename 'Maple Fury'
Okay, seriously, you with the kinetic penetrator fetish WHY THE FUCK do you have to come to every single thread and start the same argument.It's.A.Fucking.Super.Robot.Movie.Stop thinking hard science. It doesn't apply here. We are in the land of old-school mecha shows, where the bad guys are assholes, the heroes are heroic, and the science is questionable at best.That's just the way it is.If you didn't grow up with these shows, you might not "get it", but that's not a flaw of the film, as it is exactly what it set out to be. A cinematic love letter to those old shows.Also, maybe if you didn't come off as an arrogant prick (really, you're calling yourself "common sense", just going "nuh-uh" when people point out that Kaiju Blue buildup could rapidly render the planet uninhabitable, and generally acting arrogant, so people are GONNA think you're a fucking jackass) you wouldn't rustle so many jimmies.
Ignore the PPDC. Pretend to obey sanctions, make excuses and use political trickery on giving back the tech. Get working on repairs. Request Japan to design fast working repair/construction drones, get estimate.
>>26144895>Ignore the PPDC>Obtain next Kaiju Corpse>Begin developing eva like systems with Kajiu Physiology >We Evangelion now
>>26144895Is it going to have a monolecular hockey stick and a Timmie's in the cockpit? I Kid, I kid. As for the PPDC, inform them that they shut us down, and therefore they no longer have the authority to request it. If they have a problem with us continuing to support their defense of the planet, they can set up a meeting to discuess alternative options through the appropriate channels.As well, be sure to release a $5 video of the Kaiju fight from a cockpit view of both Jaegers (Sanitized of sensitive info, of course).
>>26144991>Is it going to have a monolecular hockey stick and a Timmie's in the cockpit?No, but it WILL wear a Jaeger-sized flannel shirt and wield an axe that employs the same tech as Striker Eureka's knives, eh. And yes, it's pilots end every sentence with "eh", eh.
>>26144962>kinetic penetrator fetish.Kaiju blue is a big problem, I honestly think the best bet for earth is to escape, i mean use the land that cannot be easily accessed by kaiju to build ship modules that we send to orbit, in orbit build ships. Colonize moon?
>>26144895>Tectonic warnings in the AtlanticShite. What's the likellihood of a two-pronged Kaiju attack from both oceans?
>>26145035We would get trans dimensional readings.
>>26145023Unacceptable.I needs to do at least one of the things in either of these video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEsk8b09cQMhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54eyp9mMOiI
>>26145029Didn't mean you, really. Meant the guy who is namefagging as "common sense", and flat-out denied that Kaiju Blue is BAD SHIT, long term buildup of which would kill us all.
>>26144962>punch kaiju to death>kaiju blue goes everywhere>MUH LOGICYou're bad at this. The Jaeger option is just as bad if not worse. The only thing that won't spread it is a legion of vehicles equipped with Plasma Canons. That's IN THE MOVIE AS FACT. They are the only weapon that will not spread kaiju blue. Deal with it.We sound cocky to you because we're smarter than you. I love mechs. I LOVE THEM. The movie gave me a boner that lasted all day. But we're just not having fun you approve of, so you're mad as fuck about it, and that's pathetic. Get out.
>>26145097You're forgetting that at short range, a Kaiju that REALISES what's shooting it will simply shitkick small vehicles like tanks a fuckton faster, right?Jaegers survive easier because they're large enough to take hits that would wreck tanks and aircraft.That's probably why they're so huge and wasteful, so they can take a hit and keep fighting.
>>26145023I just cried a little with joy.>>26144968>>26144991You generally tell the PPDC that you'll talk, but that they have no authority over you. You also calmly point out that Maw would've wrecked most of Japan if you hadn't intervened. You also release said video. Funding is at 185 million USD. A new Jaeger would cost 200 Million USD if anyone's curious. The next Kaiju attack is predicted to come in 6 days. >>26145035>>26145064>implying the pacific nations bothered to set up anything at all in the AtlanticBut it would take some serious effort. It's unlikely for now, but never rule anything out with extra-dimensional invaders.
Why don't we research orbital plasma bombardments, or at least high altitude ones?Kaiju can't destroy what it can't hit.
>>26145097>We sound cocky to you because we're smarter than youNo, you sound cocky because you ARE cocky.Declaring yourself "smarter than you" to someone who you have never interacted with, on an anonymous image board, is the very height of arrogance.>we're just not having fun you approve of, so you're mad as fuck about it>says the guy who comes into threads about a Super Robot movie, and bitches about "muh realism", rather than just embracing the crazyGo ahead and MAKE a thread for it, but don't shit up EVERY FUCKING PACRIM THREAD WITH THE SAME GODDAMN ARGUMENT. It got old a week ago.
>>26145143See if we can arrange a survey with a second-line Kaiju geomatics team.Direct research to MASER based weapons, and a fusion based power source for a new MkV to supplement Striker, as well, see if there's a good MkIV chassis that we can set up a mass-production line to get an economy of scale up in the interim while we get a MkV production line up and design and make a MkVI with a gatling MASER and fusion plant.
>>26145143Divert topographic satellite and do deep infrared scans. Get some sonar buys set up just in case.Those rapid repairs/construction drones from japan, do we have an estimated cost on them?Get repairs going on crimson.
>>26145186>MASERHaha. Here's hoping they'd work better then they usually do in a Kaiju movie.
>>26145143>A new Jaeger would cost $200M USDOooooooh. Do we get to design it if we ever do take up that option?
>>26145150High investment, low return. If we do this we could put ourselves out of business.You guys want to walk away from this with pensions right? It's a crime that heroes like Charles Hunnam had to go work as a wall builder when they were done piloting.I think we should begin finding more drift compatible candidates and making standby pilot teams on the off chance that we lose a pilot. Not like that ever happens....Also, whoever said we should be fliming and selling footage is absolutely correct. Also, let's look into product endorsement. There's a strong market for Jaeger-Bombs and Crimson 'Typhoons'. We could be capitalizing on this.
>>26145214MASERS are microwave lasers. They'll cause cauterisation and SHOULD be easier for us than UV of soft-X-rays.
>>26145240They just have a very questionable history when it comes to Kaiju movies. Then again, Pacrim Kaiju seem weaker on general then normal Kaiju, so maybe.
>>26145232How do we screen for compatibility? It's not like we can simply put up flyers in most major cities that say "WANTED: TWINS, TRIPLETS, AND CLOSE FRIENDS FOR JAEGER PROGRAM."
>>26145075I forgot this one:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=up0i0G_y05A
>>26144167>Because suspense.>They did...>That probably happened right after Charlie Day ran away.>Watch Alien>Takes time to grow them, also Gipsy kicked their ass last time they used one.>Water conducts heat better than air.>It had floatation bags.>Was it really 50lbs? Don't know on that one.>They were.>It didn't push it all away, it was boiled.>Don't know>It was also the link itself burning out his brain from the solo piloting.>Why are you so bad at flying, you fool?>Maybe it didn't close all the way, also space magic.>Because she had to be there, honestly I would have enjoyed some 'Murrika fuck yeah solo piloting.Not all the best reasons, but I answered the best I could, it was fun.
>>26145258To be fair to the MASER, in most movies they aren't actual MASERs, they're railguns.Besides, if make FELs simply tuned to microwaves, we could go from microwaves all the way up to soft X-rays.
>>26145232Well, technically we are terminally ill.>>26145231>>26145143Continue training/recruiting pilots, we want the best when we get around to a new Jaeger.
>>26145262That's actually a rather good idea. We should get the boys in PR on it right away. Along with radio ads. Comic books can be an easy and effective way to drum up interest as well.
>>26145262They don't have to be related. But I'd suggest using a vast pool of recruits, then putting them in highly stressful/dangerous situations.That will separate the wheat from the chaff, and we'll work on training those left over to see if they're compatible.
>>26145313We should also bring in Charlie as a pilot trainer. Someone with that level of combat experience shouldn't be left outside. We need him training new pilots with his veteran experience, and if the opportunity arises, he might find a suitable candidate and we can put him on the line in a new-build Jaeger. Another veteran pilot in combat might give us that little edge we need.
>>26145313>Not thinking of the wellfare of your pilots past the program because you bleed out the nose when you aren't eating your special candies.Dammit Idris, pull your had out of your ass and start thinking about the long term, even if you won't be in it.
>>26145368Well, yeah. Actually how much do Jaeger pilots get paid? Was Charlie in dire financial straights to go working on the wall, or was it some sort of penance?
>>26145186You look into fusion power and MASERs, but it will take some time.>>26145197Japan estimates each one at 30 million till they become more cost effective. Typhoon is rapidly undergoing repairs.>>26145231YES. http://apps.warnerbros.com/pacificrim/designer/us/4 days. Canada has developed a giant chain axe hand for Maple Fury. Nothing for it has been built. the PPDC are expressing frustration over our resistance and is pushing major alliance nations to put pressure on us. Isreal screams on air about us being super terrorists. Japan offers schematics for a shoulder mounted railgun compatible with Striker Eureka for rights to and command over the next Jaeger we build.
>>26145313>>26145338If I remember from the prequel comic, the PPDC had a training academy set up in Anchorage, near the Anchorage Shatterdome. Since we broke ties with the PPDC, however, I don't know how we'll be able to train any recruits we do get. That training facility had everything, from room and board to Conn-Pod simulators. Without the PPDC's level of funding, I don't see how we'll be able to effectively any standby or new crews.
>>26145349Perhaps we can build him a new Gypsy using the remaining parts and frames retrofitting with new technolgy.
>>26144591Pretty much this, create a miniature version of the Jaeger's plasma cannon and outfitted them on tanks and aircrafts, then spam those thing and destroy whatever dare to step foot on land.Or hell, just armed the damn wall with plasma turrets.
>>26145410So Guide, the guy up top talking about it got me curious. Will we get a totally awesome team up with Godzilla?
Rolled 6>>26145410Tell Israel to shut the fuck up and consider that if we had the support of the nations around the world, we wouldn't need to sell our services. And if we weren't around, millions would die. AND, they can eat a dick since they are currently untouched by Kaiju attacks.
>>26145410We take Japan's offer, but ask for one rapid drone for free, we pay for the second one now. They can have the next Jaeger we build.
>>26145412Inform them that while we appreciate it, we are currently too short of deployable Jaegers and pilots to be giving new models away at this time. If Japan wishes to contribute pilots and materiel to the program, however, we can and will offer discounts on both Kaiju defense and future sales of Jaegers and parts and maintenance.
>>26145410Japan's always been supportive of us and shit. I think we should take it. Make a big deal about it, like "Japan sees the need for the Jaeger Project and has been kind with assistance and funding. Because of this we are going to assist them back." Blah blah
>>26145410>Japan offers schematics for a shoulder mounted railgun compatible with Striker Eureka for rights to and command over the next Jaeger we build.This sounds good, Striker Eureka is fast enough to stay well out of reach of most Kaiju and wail on them with that railgun.We should allow the next Jaeger we build to be stationed at Japan for it's sole defence (except in the case of extreme emergencies, such as a double event or destruction of all other Jaegers.)The Jaeger will be at the behest of the Japanese government barring these extreme emergencies. The crew is still ours, though Japan may put candidates forward.
>>26145478In their Honor we will call it Black Samurai
>>26145414No, he's currently without a #2. Better to have him head up training and get him a MkIV or MkV once we get a proper production line up.At 200mil a pop, assuming we can get the materials needed, we should be able to, with the support of Japan and other asian countries (Specifically China, because we're in Hong Kong), we can F-22 that shit down to at least 150 with hopefully a 50 Jaeger run of a MkIV Jaeger as an interim defense solution until we can develop a mass-production model Striker Eureka to take over, and then a MkVI Jaeger.
>>26145410>Giving Japan command of one of our rare and critical JaegersSeriously, some of you guys think this is anything but a bad idea? We're small, we need to have mobile assets. We don't need Japan holding onto our toys.Tell them we can station the Jaeger in Japan to provide favored defense, but we are lacking in the numbers to turn over command. If that's not good enough for them we can figure something else out.Also, we need a new training facility. Japan is on good terms with us. Ask if we can get basing space.
You guys saying we give Japan our next Jaeger are forgetting that we're BROKE right now.As well, you're forgetting we have THREE Jaegers.We can't afford to give what could be our only new Jaeger for months away.We should at the least ATTEMPT to negotiate down from a whole Jaeger.
Rolled 1>>26145522A new shatterdome based on Okinawa.
>>26145478>Compatible with Striker>already has anti Kaiju missiles and top of the line general functionalityShouldn't we be trying to make our other Jaegersmore effective before giving our cavalry a cannon?
>>26145441PERHAPS....>>26145457>>26145476>>26145478You promote Japan's opinion, and haggle for the drone. They agree, and begin building it, while forwarding the plans. They also offer us the option to build a second facility in Tokyo.>>26145455You shout about Israel being wrong but get yelled at for being 'anti-Semitic' (I assume your roll counts for this). /pol/ sends it's regards.
>>26145455Second this. All of it.Hell, I don't care if we say that verbatim in an interview.
>>26145538Japan can build stuff for us, giving them a means of self protection is IN our best interests specially now that the PPDC is not happy with us. We need allies.
>>26145607oh and 2 DAYS
>>26145476I like this. Japan's been bro-tier with us so far (no shit, we have mechs).
Guys, I just had a stupid, crazy, brilliant idea.We're short on Jaegers, right? Only 3, with Gipsy still knocked out? Well, the PPDC's got a whole buncha fallen Jaegers, since this war's been going on for some time. And they've gotta store those mechs somewhere, right?What if we were to raid the PPDC's Jaeger boneyard, take those fallen Jaegers, and restore them to fighting condition for a fraction of the price of building a new one?
>>26145585Personally, I see Striker as our skirmisher. He wails on the Kaiju as soon as it surfaces (he'll be able to stay out of reach), then lure it into pummelling range of Cherno and Crimson.
>>26145628Agreed. How will we move the Jaegers without causing too much turmoil and making Isreal look like they had it right all along?
>>26145628>with Gipsy still knocked out?GD got cannibalized, first thing they didalso, there should be like 20-30 fallen Jaegers around the place, mostly in lots of pieces or at the bottom of the pacific, the New Kaiju Offensive was not good on Jaeger numbers
>>26145628I'm pretty sure that they'd been recycling any fallen Jaegers as best they could.
>>26145607>/pol/ sends it regards>mfwBut seriously, we need to focus on augmenting our current Jaeger line.I'm not letting Cherno and Typhoon get insta-killed. Not again.
>>26145617Seconding this. Japan has been nothing but supportive and if we are building a base there we'll want Jaegers there. Perhaps this ->>>26145478
>>26145661lets kite a cat 5 kaiju to israel and see how their wall works
>>26145607A facility in Japan, temporary Shatterdome for the moment. We should take the option, we want the connection to them but watch our resources. Status on the various research methods we got? How is the poison, rod form god, and plasma cannon vehicles going?
>>26145410Tell Japan we'll work out a deal, but we'd rather have railgun emplacements on ground, shoreline defense systems that we can sell to other nations (And put in the Atlantic, just in case) as well as on Oil Platforms.We need to dump money into a chemical solvent or agent that sucks up Kaiju Blue, and makes it into something useful, perhaps something that will help Algae blooms in the ocean?Also; Next Eva-I mean, Jaeger should be a Winged Hussar with Pulse Rocket Jetpack, a Laser Halberd/Rifle, and a shield to block the Kaiju attacks.
>>26145504Personally, I would say we suggest the Japanese government put the naming of the new Jaeger to a popular vote from the people. If we start naming them ourselves (without the PPDC support) we'll make it look worse for ourselves.And it only costs 300ish yen to submit your vote (everybody only gets one).
>>26145725mfw when 'Dick Puncher' wins
guys, guys, what if, stay with me here, what if we just build a massive underwater minefield around the rift? And maybe like a huge plug or cap.
>>26145538Japan is pretty much our only ally here. I'm happy with forking out our next Jaeger to be concerned entirely with defending Japan, especially with the goodies coming in. That said, we should still reserve the right to commit it to other arenas in emergencies.
>>26145704>but we'd rather have railgun emplacements on ground, shoreline defense systems that we can sell to other nations (And put in the Atlantic, just in case) as well as on Oil Platforms.Ah, no. Stationary guns, even rail guns, aren't a great fucking plan.

>>26145760I agree, but we should reinforce the shit out of Japan. coastal rail guns for starters. Missile towers, and a few Plasma caster placements.
>>26145725Loving the monitization and PR from this idea.>>26145760This also can be spun to say "See, when we get support, we defend, we're the good guys here, fuck you Israel"
>>26145757oh right, the blood. well ignore the mines then, lets just put a fuckhuge metal plate over the rift and start dumping dirt on it, see how those fuckers like coming out into a mountain.
>>26145774It's at least something until the Calvary gets there, and we won't actually be funding them, we'll just fabricate one, show it off as the most amazing Kaiju killing thing ever (Besides Jagers of course) and sell it off to anyone with a pocketbook.My vote is that it's called "The Phalanx Project" in homage to World War Z, we know it's nor gonna do shit, but it'll look pretty and make people feel safe, which is what they want.
>>26145725Don't charge them to vote.Partner with Coca Cola for an endorsement deal. Every bottle has a code, use your code to vote.This could be a very lucrative relationship. Alternatively we may want to work with Pepsi-Co as their products are more diversified.
>>26145799Japan can spend its own money on these things. Our resources are limited. We don't want to make any product that competes with the Jaeger Flagship. We have a huge headstart with this technology, and it sells well. if we popularize more conventional approaches other people will start making them, and then we'll all be out of jobs.
>>26145840Could have a Coke Vs. Pepsi Jager Rock 'Em Sock 'Em match in the Superdome, charge $500 a ticket, with a contest to win tickets to watch the Jager Carnage up close and personal.
>>26145832Actually, if we want people funding Jaegers then it doesn't help our cause if they feel that a fake solution like coastline guns will protect them anyway.
>>26145799My ideas for defense and a jäger Defense: Zeus satalite(go joe 2)Jäger: live wire hunterWeapons: in one arm cannon similar to gypsie's. In other middle launcher like eureka's. on both arms have beartrap like rhings that attach to kijus and we back away and send electricity throgh them. It needs to be muscular too for power
>>26145867We can't afford to damage our Jaegers, even for promotional purposes. We need each of our mechs in fighting condition, ready to go at a moment's notice. We don't wanna be caught with a Cat 4 Kaiju looking to destroy a city and our Jaegers are still getting patched up from an exhibition match.
>>26145867That's a little shortsighted. Say something goes wrong and the Jaegers both knock each other out. Now we're down two platforms.
>>26145725You do so combined with >>26145840Fund are now at 215 million USD.ALERT: Double incursion detected at rift. One Kaiju detected headed for Mexico. The other disappears off the radar.Canada announces it's build 20% of Maple Fury
>>26145858>Survival of the human race, you are lucky i don't have you shot for putting profits over this. I understand the market, I get it, but you suggest profits over humanity one more time and I will personally strap you to a jaeger next time we got a kaiju attack.
>>26145906>>26145907This is implying that we're using our actual Jagers, not just two Scrapbots tossed together out of spare parts for a flashy show.Design a mockup, have Coke and Pepsi go along with it, by the time the event comes along, we'll have Crapbots ready to go, our real Jagers won't get damaged, and we'll have tons of money from the event.
>>26145867>with a contest to win tickets to watch the Jager Carnage up close and personalUnlike 500 days of Kaiju, most people are perfectly happy not getting caught up in that shit.Besides, I think a straight up Pay-for-one-vote will represent the people's wishes more than the wealthy buying massive stockpiles of Coca Cola.
So, I made us a potential mass-production MkV Jaeger, designed to be more of an all-rounder compared to Striker's brawler.Anyways, we should see about getting more cashflow, through whatever legit channels we can. As well, go see research about Kaiju attacks.
>>26145927The kaiju will destroy our precious burrito supply.UNACCEPTABLE.killkillkillkill
>>26145936What, like a mini-Jaeger? I'm still not comfortable with using our spare parts like that. We're on the losing end of a war of attrition, and we need every scrap we can get or manufacture.
>>26145898Stupid phone, nuclear in power, also after shocking they detach and we reil them in on the cords connecting the traps to us.
>>26145867We can do that when we have dozens of Jaegers, but considering we only have something like three at the moment, it's not very wise.Perhaps later, when our Jaeger numbers rise we could sell patrols? A country pays some dosh to have a Jaeger actively patrol its coast for a designated amount of time. Yeah?
>>26145927HAve Cherno Alpha stand defense for japan. Crimson deployed against Mexico threat, charge them 150 mill they either pay or we recall crimson.
>>26145927Hold Striker back with whatever naval support we can get. Deploy Cherno and Crimson to Mexico, assume the double-Kaiju are masking one's sig with the other, have Striker on ready-op to be deployed in support.Kaiju aren't stupid, they're likely trying to either divide our forces and kill another Jaeger, or will be coming for the shatterdome.
>>26145927Deploy all Jaegers to Mexico.If Striker has the railgun then he's taking point. Have Cherno and Crimson hold off engagement until Striker's target looks to be getting too close for comfort.>>26145929I don't think it's profits, it's the danger of a false sense of security. We're basically talking about the Wall but with more guns and less wall.
>>26145981We have no target track on Kaiju 2.We need to hold the best Jaeger back since it's proven against in solo against class IV Kaiju, but we might be facing Kaiju with a basic understanding of sensors and EW.
>>26145945>mass-production>MkVYou do realise that Striker cost 100 billion AUD
>>26145979Yeah, Mini Jagers made by unemployed fabrication teams. Take them 6-8 months to build, another 4 months to finalize, and advertise it the whole while. Have it around the same time as the SuperBowl, for a massive Double Event.>>26145927Has Mexico paid? Let it wreak havoc for a bit, then go help them. Send them a bill later.
>>26145929>Frankly Doctor I think the way you patronize Japan's ability to construct its own coastal defenses is cute, but a tad arrogant.>Look, we can always contract out our specialists to work with world governments in developing their own auxiliary defenses. However, the allocation of our funds and resources should always prioritize the Jaeger Program. To do anything else in our current state of weak affairs would in fact be putting manking at risk. >Get over yourself.>>26145927>Double alertThat's... bad. Do we have an ETA for when the Kaiju will hit Mexico?Find that other Kaijiu ASAP. Offer the world governments such as the United States future discounts in exchange for Kaiju location information.
>>26145927Send Cherno and Striker to deal with the Kaiju headed toward Mexico. Keep Crimson and Gipsy on standby.Also, let's see if we can make some extra cash by selling of kaiju parts, if not break into a pre-existing economy. If kaiju bone powder can nab $500 USD a pound, I think we might have to resort to using this as a source of income.
Hey guys, as far as building new Jaegers, what about instead of stealing the old ones from the PPDC, why don't we just build older Mark Is and IIs from scratch then upgrade them with modern weapons? We could build several Coyote Tangos or Horizon Braves or Tacit Ronins for the cost of a Striker Eureka and they would be just as effective with Plasma Casters or Anti-Kaiju Missiles as the later series, even if they are out match in strength. We can also let the Russians loose on modding them like they did Cherno Alpha to 'catch them up' as missions are completed and money rolls in.
>>26145945I like the design. Cheap, dependable, effective. Lets talk to Japan about resources.>>26145927Demand 200m to defend. Deploy Cherno and Crimson upon receipt of payment. Till then hold them back to defend our own bases.
>>26146052Gypsy's gone bro. We cannibalized her.
>>26146032It was a prototype, the only MkV.Of COURSE it was hilariously expensive.We need to see if we can economically produce MkV Jaegers once we have a MkIV assembly line running.
>>26145981Hell no, we have no idea where the other fellow is. I do not want to see another 2 Kaiju tag team against Crimson.I do agree with threatening to recall them if they don't pay. >>26145981>>26146019
>>26146052Gypsy has been canabalized. And we're in no position to be selling off our scrap when we're cannibalizing Jaeger. Selling Kaiju parts would work though. Now that we no longer work through a government forum we can work with materials that might be illegal in what used to be constituent nations.Ask Mexico for money, scramble Typhoon and Cherno, keep back our Aussie machine. Need to worry about that missing Jaeger. We can't overcommit.
I vote we make a Jaeger with the nuclear vortex thing from Striker in its chest, both hands, and then mount one on its back that has a turret like thing. BECOME THE FIRESTORM
>>26146077Oh, damn, right. Well, still send Striker and Cherno out, and pray that whatever that second Kaiju is is something the triplets can handle by themselves, if it even decides to rear its ugly head.But dammit if I'm not gonna miss that old girl...
>>26146068Category III and IV's were wreaking Mk1 and Mk2 Jaeger's in short order. It's why the New Kaiju offensive was so demoralizing.
>>26146047Its rather an issue of who contorls the guns. But to be honest i don't care who builds them as long as they get built. We know missiles and plasma barrage is a deterrent, if anything hurt the kaiju and slow it down enough until Jaegers can get in. We need Japan to be a stronghold. We can agree that Japan at this moment is our only source of resources, payment and our only ally.
>>26146165It's only been a week Doctor. Japan is a sovereign nation, not your Waifu. We should actively be pursuing more partnerships, on both sides of the ocean. There are plenty of very smart people in this world, doing alot of work on their own defense programs. We have this one, and we need to make sure it remains in top form, rather then diluting our time and money on other ones. Like I said, we can contract our specialists. We engender nothing but good will if you, say, sat in some think tank with Tokyo's best and brightest. But we can't go draining our funds making a defense battery for every coast.
>>26146165Why though? Guns might hurt the Kaiju a little, but it won't slow it down nearly as much as even the Wall would. And all those people manning the guns are dead meat, and they'd know it.We shouldn't be concerned with this, Jaegers are our rapid response force, we can't divert attention to stuff that does assist us meaninfully.
Why don't we just clone a Kaiju, lobotomize it, scrap the Jeagers, then have the resulting cyborg be piloted by an emotionally unstable teenager?
Let's offer Canada our expertise in building Maple Furry, we're in dire need of allies now.
>>26146145It's not like we're creating new mechs out of nothing. All the Mark I's and II's need is a bit of a....modernization program, like the old battleships back in the 80's. New armor, better dakka, radiation shielding for the pilots in the Conn-Pods, and we can at least get them to the performance levels of the Mark III's.
>>26146145That's because we didn't know about category III and IV kaiju at the time, and when we tried to brawl with them with Mk Is they got torn up. We'd be opting for ranged engagements with anti-Kaiju weapons that just use the Jaeger as a more maneuverable platform than a tank, and able to at least take a few knocks before they get demolished. Also, we should work on armored cockpits for them; what happened to Typhoon in the movie needs to not happen so easily this time around. Metagaming? Maybe a bit. But just because China thinks sub-par cockpits are okay doesn't mean we would now that we run this shit.
Can we have Japan build a mech too? I don't care what it's named as long as its hand are glowing with an awesome power.
>>26146240the reason why CT's conn-pod was so exposed was to provide greater maneuverability and vision, it was key to CT being as successful as it was defending Hong Kong
>>26146229Go to bed, Gendo.
>>26146229Edgy Teens are bad for business, they make too many politically incorrect comments.Look at the mess we're in with Israel. Do you want us to get into something like that with, say, Singapore? We need Singapore. Because Singapore needs us.
>>26146023Cherno and Typhoon are deployed as Mexico forwards 200 million USD. They arrive as the Class 4 breaches the wall, attacking Santa Cruz. The scattered Mexican military is making a desperate stand against he creature, codenamed 'Bane'. Roll d20 for combat.>>26146231Canada accepts. Israel bashes the land of Hockey.
>>26146240I can sort of see it working if we had one or two MkI's supporting a MkIII or IV from a distance, but on they're own, even in teams, they're never going to go toe-to-toe with even a Category 3.
>>26146231I agree. We could send them a cash infusion, careful not to drop below our 200m mark.
Rolled 11>>26146294I hope this works...
>>26146231Giant HF axe.
>>26146216Well fine, just send the damn proposal to Japan, they can build the damn thing themselves for all I care.Who else can we go after financial advisor?
I hope when money becomes less of a concern we can think about drawing plans for a Gypsy Mk II.
>>26146321Low is good...right?
Rolled 8>>26146294>Breaches the wallDelicious. We aren't being paid to defend the wall after all.Make sure we get footage of the wall going down, and send it to major news networks. That's something I could jerk off to.
>>26146343ThisWe need to get a shot of the kaiju breaking the wall, and then the jaegers saving the day.Then we get the media to run that clip everywhere, showing that the wall doesn't work, but jaegers do.
>>26146294Make sure to have Mexico maintain AWAACS and Sonar coverage, as well as long-range recon, we need to make sure they don't get blindsided by the second target.What intel do we have on Bane?Have Typhoon lead, Cherno will hit it when Typhoon breaks to a flank to draw it off.If possible have Cherno hit it with it's incendiary weapons first.
>>26146294I'll get the engineering teams ready. Have the satellites search for infrared signatures nearby. We don't want a kaiju coming out of nowhere, the seafloor seismographs and sonar systems should warn us of the second kaiju.
>>26146294dice 1d20hold onto your butts
>>26146323Maybe we could contact some of the Europeans for assistance? I mean hell, Cherno is Russia's baby, and the Germans designed Tacit Ronin, even if it was housed in the old Tokyo Shatterdome.
>>26146380Unless the Kaiju learned of it, and have developed either a Stealth-flesh and/or some form of passive ECM organ.Actually, begin active radar and sonar pulses along Japan's coast, the Shatterdome, and Mexico, don't let that fucker hide.(To my knowledge most of the PR sensors were passive, so this might work)
Rolled 12>>26146323List of economically lucrative Pacific Nations:United States (A very proud nation though.)Canada (Building their own Jaeger.)Mexico (We'll see how this goes.)Panama: The Panama Canal is crucial economic vein. Be a shame if anything were to happen to it....China: We're already working out Hong Kong, that's a great starting relationship. Russia: Do they even care about their east coast?Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, are all impressive markets. Australia 'gave' us the Stryker. Let's see if we can keep up a good realtionship with them.That's just to star.
>>26146388Tacit ronin was a nice piece of machinery, fast, and agile. perfect for a land battle. We should contact the German teams build a mark 3 version.>>26146419How viable is germany?
>>26146432We've moved from a government subsidized program to Mercenary work. Germany is nowhere near our area of operation.We could do Market testing. After all, we are the 'Jaeger' program. But we're never going to have a strong partnership with them unless we're developing a product they want. They won't want our service.
>>26146311>>26146321>>26146341First 3. WHELPCherno Alpha dives in, bringing a hammerstrike onto the Kaiju's head, discharging 830kv into the beast. Startlingly, Bane's tail whips over it's back, slamming into Cherno's chest, piercing the armor and impaling halfway through the chest section. The Jaeger slumps, experienceing sudden massive failures in it's hydraulic mechanisms. Crimson Typhoon grabs the tail, pulling it out and severing the bladed tip with a plasma cast. It then brings it's dual chain swords to bear, carving the Kaiju's back and causing massive damage. Bane slams it's head into Typhoon, but it's too little too late. in a sweeping motion, Typhoon removes the Kaiju's head from it's body. Bane twitches and dies. Still no sign of the other Kaiju... Typhoon evacs Cherno to the Shatterdome for repairs. It's estimated it'll take a few days to fix Cherno.
>>26146419China is the most immediately obvious candidate. We're talking about a lot of manufacturing power here.
>>26146475We should learn from this and consider installing redundant hydraulic systems.
>>26146475FIND THAT KAIJU, NOW!Get every possible team we can onto Cherno ASAP, bring in tech specialists from Russia and Japan if possible, as well, keep Striker and Typhoon on rotating ready-op status.
>>26144167You did realize that the nuke exploding DID create a vacuum right? That's why there was the rush of water outwards as the force pushed it away AND the rush of water TOWARDS the explosion filling in where the water was vaporized.
>>26146488I would have liked germany's experts, we could still contract the individuals thought.>>26146475>>26146497Calm down, I had my teams on alert they are at it. Once we receive the rapid drones from Japan this will be an easier job.
>>26146432I agree that we should contact some of the European nations for help. Germany has the engineering expertise, Britain has naval support, the EU in general is a fairly lucrative source of income (assuming the Euro crisis didn't fuck them up the ass in this timeline) and we generally need all hands on deck for this, the kaiju will destroy ALL of humanity when they're done with the Pacific countries, so we can't afford to just limit ourselves to them. Plus if most of the Mediterranean has a high opinion of us, we have a good "STFU Israel" card to play there.Actually, I'll just request a list of economically lucrative NON-Pacific nations and their opinions towards us.
>>26146475We can manage the upkeep on Cherno.In the meantime, with our new wad of cash, I say that we build our first new mech.
>>26146475As much as I'd like us to do >>26146409. we really shouldn't respond to a Kaiju until it's actively threatening a nation. Who is going to pay us otherwise?Get building on that Jaeger for Japan, Striker better have that Railgun fixed up because he and Crimson will be going back in for Round 2 likely as not.
>>26146497We don't need Cherno up that quickly. We have four or five days to the next Kaiju, and this one will be attacking before he's fixed. Let's do this slow and orderly. Mistakes cost us pilots. But, yes, finding the other Kaiju is priority number one. Put out a bounty to the world government. Next Kaiju save is only 100 mil if they locate him for us.Biggest priority for future research; more dependable intel gathering.
>>26146419To maintain good relations with Aussieland, we can give them discounts on defense missions.Lets say its a 100 million per Jaeger to deploy on a defense mission. Already makes sense since we're charging Mexico 200 million to deploy 2 Jaegers in its defense.Since Aussieland 'donated' their Striker Eureka, it's free for them, and something like a 25% discount for additional Jaeger deployment.Give this offer to any nation who donates a Jaeger. Free Jaeger deployment and a discount for additional Jaegers. Now there's an incentive to make and donate Jaegers to our cause. If they didnt donate, they would have to pay the full price for additional Jaegers, but if they donated, they pay at a discounted price.We may lose income, but we'll get more Jaegers, and with more Jaegers we can get paid for patrol missions, etc.
>>26146552We need to find and be in position to assist.We don't have teleporting Jaegers. People won't pay us if we can't help. This begs the question, what will do if a country doesn't pay? I don't imagine our pilots will take kindly to us telling them to let women and children die because a country hasn't footed its bill.
>>26146529The problem is that we're pretty much mercenaries. Why would these nations help us rather than directly assisting other nations? We should concentrate on Pacific nations. In particular Japan, China and Aus (due to the MkV donation). Canada also looks promising.
>>26146552Who said we have to go in when we find it?At least keep an eye on it so we can reasonably respond when the threat (and cash) arrives.
I'm going to suggest looking into reactivating former pilots; and former students dismissed from the Jaeger Academy after it was closed.
>>26146566Why on earth would a country build a Jaeger then donate it to us rather than have it defend their own nation?
>>26146260Fair enough.>>26146303This was my thought, but I also think that a team of 3 could easily confuse a Kaiju. They wouldn't know how to deal with a 3-on-1; at least not till they evolved to do so. But that's going to happen to any tactic we use against them.Conversely, we could strap Newt into a Mk. I and rig the core to detonate 5 minutes after he gets dragged through the Throat. I mean we know they are gonna come for him by now, right?
>>26146566I would take this a step further.We offer a discount to any nation that has an active Jaeger program. Otherwise its a 200m fee to be defended.
>>26146586We kill that Kaiju, but do not deploy to the area again until we are paid.
>>26146586Well unless the pilots are HOT-BLOODED enough to launch the Jaegers themselves against our orders, we'll have to simply stand by and watch the carnage on TV, maybe using the footage as ammunition for why not using Jaegers to defeat high-level Kaiju threats is a bad idea.
>>26146599I'm fairly certain Charlie was one of the few survivors that could still pilot a Jaeger.
>>26146609If we gave them the blueprints? It could be done.It wouldn't be 'donate a Jaeger' it would be 'donate resources and industry'. It needs to be carefully managed.Make it seem like we're doing them a favor. "Oh, we noticed you're in a Kaiju Sensitive area. We can help you with exclusive economic packaged if you'll give us the resources and factories to build a new model of Jaeger.'If you can sell anything with the right pitch.
>>26146614This sounds more like it. We're doing this for humanity after all, and this is some incentive for countries to field their own Jaegers and we send in ours to support them when needed.
>>26146589Because we hold the most Jaegers right now, with Canada making one.Against the Kaiju, we don't want to be outnumbered. Pretty sure common sense dictates that. We have 3 Jaegers, the rest of the world has 1.We throw this deal out there. Either they make more Jaegers to help themselves, which kills Kaiju, and we can loot the bodies for RnD, or they make more Jaegers and takes the deal.Win-win scenario. Even if this deal doesn't take off, more Kaiju are dying and more lives are being saved. Making Jaegers more popular, and then we can sell more merchandise and shit like that.
>>26146633We still want to be scrambled for intercept, before we get paid. Because if we get paid and we aren't there in time, it will be very, very bad PR for us.
>>26146609They want it in action kicking Kaiju ass?They don't want to train pilots, therefore they'd rather just give it to us because we have skilled people capable of putting a new Jaeger through its paces?Fuck I dunno...
>>26146633I don't care how hot blooded they are activation codes are needed. Plus there are kill codes to freeze jaegers.
>>26146633I would honestly not have a shred of respect for our pilots if they were deployed within combat distance of a Kaiju about to wreck a city and then watched on as it went to town, regardless of any orders we made.
Alerts start pouring in... A Kaijus been sighted in the Atlantic. Horrible realization dawns on you as it occurs that the beast has traveled around one of the southern capes. It appears to be moving northward toward Europe, and it'll undoubtedly arrive some time before you can respond in the area. The Eurozone is in a panic, with coastal evacuations taking place suddenly everywhere.
>>26146696Well... I guess we can hit up Germany and the UK now.
>>26146609Because if you take the deal you get your own Jaeger that you donated deployed for free, and additional Jaegers for a discounted price.Otherwise you would have to pay more for more Jaeger support from us.>>26146614Actually I kinda like this more than my original plan.
>>26146696Begin forward deployment, see what the Eurozone is offering in terms of strategic airlift for Striker and Crimson.Make sure they know we're available and eager for fighting.
>>26146686That's a pretty bad idea with a Kaiju in their immediate proximity.No really, how is that at all a good idea? It loses us a Jaeger, it's a PR nightmare AND it gets hundreds of thousands of innocent people killed directly because of us.
>>26146696Charge an "enhanced fee" to the Eurozone and deploy Striker/Typhoon as fast as possible.
>>26146696Gentlemen,This is the sound of profit. Luckily Typhoon is already in SA. He can cross overland. And what he said >>26146714 See if Airlift is feasible.Tell them that for this long of a trip, we'll be needing a large deposit. There are alot of rich countries in Europe. Let's see what the EU can put together for us. For one thing, tell them we want Germany to build us a new one.
>>26146716well its simple, no pilots may steal Jaegers, and even if they mange to steal one, we can shut it down. These measures are not meant for any other uses.
>>26146696Get Eureka strapped into JumpHawks and give the order to haul ass.Get Crimson Home and ready to deploy ASAP, but keep him at the Shatterdome.Get repairs on Cherno started, and get him up, but this assignment is much lower priority to getting Crimson up.Last thing we need is to be blindsided at home...After Europe is secure, pitch them the "Economic insentives" of fielding Jaegers
>>26146696Deploy Striker Eureka and Crimson Typhoon, we shouldn't charge for this one, since we won't exactly be preventing it's arrival. Definitely a chance to disprove the effectiveness of the Wall and get major funding back into the Jaeger program though.I can only hope that railgun is working.
>>26146753more importantly can we get there on time?
We have the funds.We should start building a new Jaeger. Or maybe rebuilding Gipsy Danger as GD 2.0, since lots of its parts are probably still intact.
>>26146756> and even if they mange to steal oneStarting a Jaeger is like starting an F1 car, fucking complicated, they need a shatterdome to get running from a cold start
>>26146712>>26146669Thanks. The idea here is to incentivise other nations to start building Jaegers again. As more nations start building their own, thats more in the fight, and more industry to fall back on.>>26146696We purchase and send one repair drone to Canada to aid in their efforts.
>>26146757You mean of funding Jaegers. If they seem like they want to field their own, remind them that it's considerably cheaper to work as a collective and fund us. Who do they trust more, an international defense organization, or do they really think their neighbors will compromise there own defense?
>>26146756I mean using it to prevent them stopping a Kaiju from destroying a city if a nation refuses to pay.
>>26146787>Canada>EuropeCome on, man.
>>26146696Get on the horn with the Prime Minister, and the Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German heads of state. Let's see if we can talk turkey with all four of them.
I think its time we start developing a fast travel system for Jaegers, quick global deployment.We dont actually have to build it yet, but it might be a good idea to get some ideas on how to get one.
>>26146776On time to save everyone? Maybe with Airlift. Airlift from Mexico for Crimson. There's no wall over there, they're very exposed. Maybe the US will attempt a fleet action on behalf of its economic allies.
>>26146792While it's entirely plausible to do that, that's not what it's for.It's a failsafe in the unlikely event some asshole tries to jack our shit.
>>26146789Why don't we also get started building a shatterdome in the Atlantic region. I'm sure the Europeans/Americans would be willing to provide.
>>26146810orbital platform to drop them from with a space elevator to take them back up for rearming/repairs?
>>26146804I meant what i said.
>>26146820There is no incentive this is a freak incident.
>>26146820Maybe we should see how this goes before we start making plans. However, I would not be averse to a shatterdome in Mallorca.
>>26146744>>26146753We can't charge them for this, we won't be arriving in time and NO ONE saw this coming. We can hardly hold them at ransom for this.Definitely milk this for all it's worth, but only AFTER we rush in and save the day. Makes us look less like mercenaries to the world at large and gives us goodwill with the Euro countries who I can bet will now be abandoning the idea of the Wall of Life.
>>26146696Can we have at least one of these designs implemented? (Preferably the German-style bruiser.)
>>26146837We treated San Francisco was a freak incident, and look where that landed us.
>>26146832Ah, I thought you meant encouraging Canada to send their unfinished Jaeger to Europe.
>>26146828A friend and I actually thought of something like an Orbital Shatterdome, the issue here is making a heatshield and getting the resources to send the Jaegers back up.Or we can send up an orbital factory that would mine asteroids, make Jaegers, and deploy them down to Earth with no way of sending Jaegers back up. But thats some real scifi shit.
>>26146853nope, just to help them along, and keep them up once they're up
>>26146840And thus we agree on something.>>26146848I would have nuked the thing sooner. much less casualties, but general bright decided not to.
>>26146844>Not charging them for the unexpectedMan, like, I guess, but.... We shouldn't make this a regular thing.
>>26146814Where's the closest US carrier group? The only large US base I know of in Europe is that air base in Ramstein, but even if they can scramble fighers, it'll be like trying to take down a gorilla with mosquito bites.
>>26146714Reports start filing in from London. It's under attack. The entire Eurozone offers airlift support and the UK makes a forward offer of 100 million USD with more if we can make it and help. Eureka and Typhoon are on their way. It's bad. The UK military can barely slow the monster down, and the death toll had rapidly hit the millions. The UK is considering use of Nuclear fire if you can't make it fast enough.
>>26146848>>26146837It's easily preventable by stationing Jaegers at the cape.What I really want to know is how did the Kaiju figure this out? How aware of our current deployments and general geography are they?
>>26146884I'm tempted to let them try because I have a feeling it wouldn't work...
>>26146884We need to go faster, Bonus incentives to the pilots, push the machines to their limits.
>>26146879Mallorca?Oh yeah, it's a great place. I'd save them for free any day. https://www.google.com/search?safe=off&q=magaluf&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.49478099,d.dmg,pv.xjs.s.en_US.c75bKy5EQ0A.O&biw=1280&bih=667&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&authuser=0&ei=oY_rUYWuDMv54AONvIGIDQ#um=1&safe=off&hl=en&authuser=0&tbm=isch&q=magaluf%20party&revid=240313576&ei=qI_rUb-1IaT94AOWy4HwDw&ved=0CA0QsyU&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.49478099%2Cd.dmg%2Cpv.xjs.s.en_US.c75bKy5EQ0A.O&fp=1b36faebc582481b&biw=1280&bih=667&imgdii=_
>>26146879No ones wants to hit one of their countries most populous cities with a nuclear bomb.
>>26146820Let's talk to the Americans first. An East Coast Shatterdome would be mighty lucrative for whatever East Coast state nabbed it.
>>26146844I definitely agree with this. Don't charge them, make us look less like mercs makes people more comfy paying us. Since we need the money for 'Jaeger repairs and construction', which is exactly what we're doing with it anyways.That and finding new ways to kill Kaiju.
>>26146884How fast are we moving? Even if we can't offer close-combat, how long until we can drop Striker for long-range interdiction using it's new railgun? That thing should be good from fucking GERMANY.
>>26146881There's one in the Med. based out of Italy. Carrier group, MEDCOM.There' also a carrier group in Norfolk.
>>26146884Oh god, its San Fransisco all over again.
>>26146884Get on the horn with Great Britain.Hold the nukes, we're on our way as fast as we can.P.S. thanks for the financial booster shot.
>Mk3 and 4 Jager parts, partially for mobility, forward locking foot for extra weight behind the punch, mixture of Maneuverability and power, with redundancy backups.It might could work.
>>26146880We're not trying to be out-and-out mercenaries, we're trying to encourage the nations to fund the Jaeger program or invest in constructing a Jaeger of their own.
>>26144962You seem mad, friend.Also, I left to watch a movie after the last post under my name so you were arguing with someone else. (also this is the first thread about PacRim I've participated in, though a kinetic penetrator fetish sounds fun)
>>26146887Kaiju aren't stupid, they know how to adapt, and they're likely synthetic and/or a social species. It's likely the double event was to force us out of position to allow their manuver element to attack an undefended area while their blocking force kept us tied up and inflicted casualties.
>>26146884How can it hit the millions already? Even the San Francisco incident was only in the hundreds of thousands after 6 days.
>>26146912I need a drink, I can't take this shit again.
>>26146884Get our Jaegers to London now! We have to contain this threat before it goes on and starts terrorizing the English coastline!
>>26146884Deny the front offer.Say that they need it more than we do, since they actually kind of do. Makes us look better.
>>26145078btw, "big guns" meant big plasma cannons. Seeing as, you know, conventional weapons can't fire effectively underwater and if they could would cause Kaiju blue.
>>26146936>Class 1 compared to a Class 4
>>26146895If we had more pilots, we could do this in relays. So that the combat pilots are in top shape when they get on scene.How do we move faster? What is the overland speed of a Jaeger? What's the speed of our flight insertion?This is tragic, but we need to be using this as a lesson and a lecture.
>>26146936Because a Cat IV is bigger, stronger, and faster?
Rolled 7>>26146884Who has the facilities to build us some jaegers, we have funding for 2 now do we not?also, roll for getting us there faster
Men, I have an ideaInstead of a regular wall, what if we made a wall out of jaegers?Stay with me for a minute, these jaegers would lightweight and "foldable" into wall like segments, and capable of powering up on the flyWhen a kaiju attacks jaegers break from the wall and swarm around, destroying it
>>26146924But how do they know which areas are undefended?
>>26146944They are going to need a lot more than that to rebuild London.For us, on the other hand, it's a hefty sum.
>>26146936Population density? Or maybe this thing's gone nad eaten a few other cities on its way to London.Or it ate Wales. All of Wales.
>>26146955>>26146959Oh yeahAw shit
>>26146905Better to put it on a mid-atlantic island, or even the tip of Greenland.
>>26146944If we turn this down, it's coming out of your paycheck Idris.
>>26146968They're GIANT MONSTERS.We don't know enough about their biology at the moment to know whether they can do shit like passive radar or some form of other non-visual BVR perception.
>>26146986The Azores is a pretty good location.
>>26146990Will you just shut up and let the fighters talk for a second? Go to your quarters and brainstorm milking strategies by yourself.
>>26146976What if we made Cheaper Mark 2 and 3 machines, 3-5 of them, and keep them stationed in different areas, Europe, South Pacific, etc, etc. We use the cheap Drone ones so that no Pilots die, and it ties up the Kaiju's long enough for the main force to get in and take it out.
>>26146957Eureka and Typhoon land running outside of London. The cities a smoldering wreck, with barely any signs of life. A handful of Challenger 2 MBTs fire a few rounds behind a building and stream of acidic spew comes out and melts the tank. A massive Class 4 Kaiju comes into view. It has wings. The beast roars, and spews acid on a building, turning it to slag in a matter of seconds. Roll d20 for combat.
>>26147007Too expensive and leaves us with too few options in case of a double event.
>>26146944I second this. That 100 million will be put to better use in reconstruction and helping the survivors.
Rolled 19>>26147016Oh.That would explain that.Stay mobile, PRIMARY THAT RANGED WEAPON.

>>26147025>>26147027>>26147028Could be worse, definitely could be better.
>>26147025>>26147027>>26147038Okay depending on how the fight goes we either accept or deny.If we come out hurt, we'll need that dosh.
Rolled 3>>26147016Rolling for REVENGE!
>>26146961Germany designed one of the Mark 1's, and Russia basically built Cherno Alpha. France and Britain might be able to contribute scientists and engineers--maybe even Rangers.I still say, though, that America is our best bet for an ally. They're the only country that has the possibility of being attacked from both ends--something to consider when going up against these nasty Category-4 Kaiju. They already have a Shatterdome in Alaska, too.
>>26147028>>26147031>>26147036 please...... please ignore all the other rolls
>>26147066Stop fucking rolling!
>>26147005Those pills aren't cheap Idirs.Wipe your nose, your valor is showing.
>>26147064China is a safer bet, especially since Crimson Typhoon is becoming something of a poster boy.
>>26147016>Otachi in all but nameFUCK. FUCK. FUCK FUCK FUCK.
>>26147016Step back, kids
>>26147005Personally I think FinancialDude is pretty important.More dosh = more Jaegers, more repairs, more science to kill Kaiju with.Overall, more guns and mechs for you fighterdudes to kill shit with.
>>26147064right now i just want Jaegers on the assembly line, i dont care who builds them. we have funding for two i think.
Rolled 8>>26147092FORGOT THE ONE TOP KEK
>>26147083Why you little!>Reach out across the table>Go for the throat
>>26147127a guard points his pistol at you. and gestures that that wouldnt be a good idea.
>>26147127>>26147083Calm down, both of you! No fighting in the War Room!
>>26147127Pretty sure that's no Idris.Go back to Hong Kong, Hell B-... Ron P-...eh, forget it.
>>26147127>>26147083>>26147005Oh fuck. Good job guys, very cinematic.
>>26147087But China doesn't have the possibility of being banged at both ends.
>>26147025>>26147027>>26147028First 3. Dat 19 will help but dat 2... damn son.Typhoon and Eureka move to double team, firing a pair of plasma casts at the target, grazing it. The beast roars and lifts off the ground grabbing Typhoon by the shoulders as it does so, rapidly gaining altitude. Striker stabilizes and braces itself and lines up it's railgun. It's a 50/50 chance of hitting Typhoon or the Kaiju, but it's necessary. Striker fires... and hits both. Typhoon's third arm is sheared off as the round rips trough the Kaiju's chest. Both begin tumbling towards the ground. Typhoon is too entangled in the Kaiju to prepare for impact and they both crash with screeching metal and a fleshy thud into the war-torn landscape. The Kaiju sputters and dies. Typhoon isn't moving, but the crew seems to be alive. A handful, perhaps 300 people crawl out of buildings and holes in the ground. The survivors of London's 8.2 million population cheer.
>>26147181...Fuck.Well, at least we survived. Sort of.
>>26147174The vast majority of it's population, industry and government is on the east coast.
>>26147181Get on the horn with the Prime Minister and ask him if he'd kindly transfer that reward money over to us.And see if we can't run some gunnery practice simulations for the Hansens--that shot was too fucking close.
>>26147181If this is going to become a thing we might want to pack up and become mole people.
>>26147181recall the Jaeger, recover the damaged one and immediately start repairs. order two more repair drones from japan
>>26147181Thank god the pilots made it.It's time to capitalize on this.We have enough funds in the war chest for two more Jaegers. Meanwhile, it's been made abundantly clear to Europe that they still need us. We need better tracking, can we lease subs from China for this?
>>26147181Fuck.Begin recovery and repairs ASAP, ask for whatever technical, manufacturing, and personnel can be spared from the rebuild of London.Start a charity drive where people can buy non-salvagable parts of Typhoon's severed arm to support London, it'll be good PR.Make another pass of pacific nations for funding to build new Jaegers along with space and tech for a proper manufacturing line, so we aren't hand-building them.
>>26147181Oh damn.Commission that Japanese Jaeger and start building GD 2.0.We need more firepower.
>>26147243Just use funds from other European countries.>>26147003This is a very very good idea, especially with new Jaegers in the works.
>>26147243>Charity Drive to buy non-salvageable partsWhat, like a telethon? As much as I would love to go back to the glory days of the Kaiju War, we're not really in a position where we can have our Rangers anywhere but at the Shatterdome, ready for deployment whenever to wherever in the world.
>>26147181Make a public appeal to not just the European governments but all nations to convince them that the Wall of Life has failed and will continue to fail to prevent Kaiju attacks.Put forward this plan mentioned >>26146614
>>26147278No, we'll be recovering all our Jaegers and mission-critical shit, once we're repairing Typhoon we strip off the parts we can't fix and offer them to be sold, with process helping rebuild London, since we had no way to get there fast enough to save it.
Alright alright I like the ideas folks but I need to put them off till part 2 sadly. Sorry but it's late here and I have work tomm-- Today. so I need to get some sleep. As such I'm going to archive this and leave you to discuss plans and stratagems for the future here. Thanks guys, it's been a great thread and I had a great time! Look for the next part on Wednesday I think.
>>26147278Well, we sort of can. Typhoon certainly isn't going anywhere for a while.They've been on the front lines for a while, I suggest giving the tio a bit of Rest and Relaxation before any sort of charity drive.
>>26147315Thanks for running X-COM Pacific Rim edition. I had fun being greasy finance man.
>>26147315Thanks for running it, Guide.
So. We now have enough dosh for two new Jaegers. Anyone have any new designs they wish to submit, besides the ones submitted earlier?
>>26147328Have a PDF
We just saw Striker take out a CatIV with a gun.I think we need some more Jaegers with that kind of gun.
>>26147399it took out a cat 4 THROUGH a mk3 Jaegerwe definitely need moar railguns
>>26147356We need to not only invest in Jaegers, but also a proper, modular, upgradeable assembly line so we can lower per-unit cost with large-volume production runs.If we can get combined orders for, like, 20 Jaegers, where we ship 15 to various countries and keep 5, and they're all MkIVs, we'll be doing well.
>>26147415And make it a sort of trade secret, so other countries don't spam the living shit out of our OP as fuck railguns.They'd put us out of business.
>>26147415Crimson is a Mk4, not a Mk3. But based on the battle in London, we should put our efforts, if we are going into railgun tech, to lighter weight versions that can be fired while on the move, with a better targeting suite to allow for more precise shots while both standing and moving, like some Holo-Targeting option
>>26147438Static defense are useless, now that Kaiju have a ranged attack.Mobile platforms require Jaegers, and we have the facilities to make them, use them, and we also have the most evolved pilot program.
>>26147446Crimson is a lightly armored Jaeger, though.And we can't specialise too much, what if the next Jaeger is specced to be good against high-alpha low RoF guns?We have to adapt. We only have 1 working Jaeger ATM, too, we need to get up to the point where we can sent 2-5 Jaeger detachments to multiple spots on the planet.
>>26147432I'm not so hot on the concept of "Leo-Jaegers", if we could use the allusion. I'd rather we have a handful of super-powerful, solidly built "hero" mechs than twenty mass-produced ones.
>>26147454Railguns outrange Kaiju ranged attacks by a lot, unless they can spit acid over 200 miles away.But even so, mobile guns are better than static guns.
>>26147488No, see, they'd be Mark IVs, optimised for all-around combat, yes, mass produced, but the specs of any regular Jaeger. No skimping, just a nice, fast production rate for less than the cost of hand assembly, it also simplifies maintenance costs.For Mark Vs, unless we can figure out MASERs soon, a modified Striker should work (Just integrate the railgun better, or make it an add-on so it can stay mobile when brawling)
>>26147521Creating a Jaeger assembly line would require production space--production space we don't have. There's only so much room that can be used in a Shatterdome, even if that Shatterdome did have the capability to house upwards of twenty Jaegers at a time.We're gonna need allies if we try to go anywhere near creating a Jaeger assembly line--both for their cash and workers to actually crank out these parts.
>>26147601Yes, if you'd actually read, you'd know that I said we needed that.
>>26147521this sounds goodalso, we need to remake Tacit Ronin as a mkV
So I come back and this is still here.Have I successfully turned the Hong Kong Shatterdome into Jewish Money Maker?
>>26147834Not quite, but we're getting there. With the Atlantic now an attack area, we'll probably see an uptick in attacks, which only means that we'll probably soon see some two-pronged assaults--one heading for the Pacific, one heading for the Atlantic--and have to decide who to defend.In other words, shit's going full X-COM.
>>26147927well we dont know if they will go for the atlantic more now, the one that hit London came from the pacific, its the one that promptly vanished, if anything, this latest attack will wake Europe up and make them realise that even they are not safe
this is a strange quest

>>26147181>Striker during this entire fight
>>26147356I've got some spare Jaeger designs that I found on the internet for us to possibly use.
>>26150090Anyway, we should really get Aus/NZ/pacific island nations behind us.Since we're based in Hong Kong, and if we get them on our side, we could basically control an entire side of the Pacific Rim.
What if we buy more helicopters to help spot the kaiju during fights? Have then also deploy sonar buoys around areas to datalink to the pilots to help find where the kaijus are swimming/hiding to avoid them getting blindsided?
>>26146904>No ones wants to hit one of their countries most populous cities with a nuclear bomb.According to Spacebattles, humanity winning against the kaiju consists of mankind being pushed back, into hiding in caves, with most of the world wrecked and ruined from orbital bombardment and nukes decisively and quickly killing kaiju.
>>26151687Three man heli teams that can use buoys to triangulate position, like sub hunting?Is it a better idea to invest in our own, and in hiring/ training operators? Or would it be faster and cheaper for us to lease this from other countries?After London I can't imagine there's a country in the world that wouldn't lend us this service.
>>26151744I don't like the idea of kaiju being able to hide in water to blindside the pilots during any battle. That's like what Leatherback did to Cherno because there were no buoys or enough helos.Would be good if we could modify existing underwater illumination systems to make it easier to also visually spot kaiju in the vicinity of a jaeger.
