After we have seen the US Jaeger Gipsy Danger, the Japanese Jaeger Coyote Tango, the Russian Jaeger Cherno Alpha‘, the blueprint for the Aussie Jaeger, Striker Eureka, today, we’re getting a look at the Chinese Jaeger called Crimson Typhoon.
We already learned the Jaegers are part of a worldwide effort to stop the attack brought on by giant monsters known as ‘kaiju’ and debuted at the countries they come from in the Pacific Rim story. What makes Chinese Jaeger different from all others is that this giant robot is equipped with three arms and requires three pilots to control it, not the regular two.
Because it is written in Chinese characters, ShanghaiShock provides a translation (via ComicBookMovie):
1: 28-Go: A cockpit that also serves as an observation deck, it utilizes liquid software in order to provide a smaller electrical output trail. The cockpit fits three pilots and also serves as a command center with telescopic abilities.
2: 34R0111/STERNO: A cork like command center base that allows greater maneuverability on the Jaeger’s head
3: OSIH: Achilles shock absorber
4: 11X///: 3 person jaeger control cockpit
5: Electric-plasma Cannon (It’s the text box with the words ‘cell-tip’ and ‘anteverse’ written in it): A cannon with portable multi-layer cell tip and anteverse encryption attachments. This allows the cannon to have bio-recognition abilities that allow the cannon to focus on Kaiju bone structure.
Looks cool, but isn’t so practical. Ha, well, all jokes aside, you should check it out below.
Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman and opens July 12th, 2013.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
