Cherno Alpha by Sideswipe217 Cherno Alpha by Sideswipe217
Here's Cherno Alpha from Pacific Rim The Video Game. Enjoy Guys

History: Cherno Alpha is a Mark-1 Russian Jaeger. Piloted by Sasha Kaidonovsky and her husband Aleksis, Cherno Alpha is the last of the Mark-1 Jaeger series and the oldest Jaeger still active in combat.

Launched in 2015, Cherno Alpha is tasked to defend the coastline of Russia and the Siberian perimeter of the Anti-Kaiju Wall. Under the Jaeger’s watch, the Siberian Wall goes unbreached for six years. During that time, Cherno responds to over six Kaiju attacks in six different locations of the Pacific Rim.

By 2025, Cherno is one of the four surviving Jaegers in the war. Upon the closure of the program, the Jaeger and its pilots are relocated to Hong Kong, China on the order of the United Nations.

Cherno Alpha was to defend Striker Eureka alongside Gipsy Danger and Crimson Typhoon on the assault against the breach during Operation Pitfall, but was deployed with Crimson Typhoon in Victoria Harbour, when the Double Event occurs. Marshall Stacker Pentecost orders Striker not to engage as he wanted Striker to remain undamaged so it could carry the bomb. Cherno and Crimson are left to engage Otachi in combat.

As Striker remains a fair distance away from the battle, the Jaegers initially held a two against one advantage against the Kaiju. Otachi began its assault against Crimson, who, after a brief brawl, hurled her toward Cherno who placed her in a headlock and proceeded to pummel her face. Otachi manages to break free by using her tail to knock Cherno off of its feet.

As Crimson came back to assist Cherno, the Wei triplets were completely ignorant of Otachi's tail pincer. The Kaiju tears Crimson's Conn-Pod from its neck, the leaderless Jaeger to collapses into the harbour. Striker's pilots, unable to sit back any longer and watch their comrades die, disobey orders and rush to Cherno's aid.

Otachi changes tactics. As Cherno slams its fists together in a taunting gesture and marches forward to engage, Otachi spat a stream of corrosive acid at its reactor. The acid melted the Jaeger's armor, compromising the Conn-Pod and damaging the reactor and fuel reserves.

Before Striker can reach Cherno, the Russian Jaeger is ambushed by Leatherback. Leatherback leaps onto Cherno's back as Otachi tore at one of its arms, leaving Cherno all but defenseless. Otachi moves to intercept Striker. Leatherback smashes Cherno's reactor and uses its weight to drag down the Jaeger in the harbor. The Jaeger's Conn-Pod is flooded with water, submerging the Kaidonovskys. Leatherback crushes the Conn-Pod in a fiery underwater explosion before they even have time to drown.

Features: Cherno is one of the heaviest and best armored Jaegers, albeit one of the slowest. Cherno Alpha is built to endure long tours of duty and sustain as much damage from Kaiju attacks as it is able to return in kind. Oppositely, its lack of speed makes it one of the slowest Jaegers of any Mark series and vulnerable to attack from quicker enemies. Cherno's heavily armored arms are equipped with a weapon codenamed "Roll of Nickels"; cylinders that Cherno can grip and increase the power of its punches. When using "Roll of Nickels", the environment is said to shake from each blow it lands against a Kaiju.

Its arms also appear to be spring loaded, although can be supplemented by hydraulics for increased impact potential. Similarly, Cherno's Z14 Fists are powered by Tesla cells, allowing for a formation of simultaneous electric arc impulse, with force up to 415kv into a Kaiju, usually to the effect of smashing both fists to induce maximum current at the sides of a Kaiju's head, usually stunning or incapacitating most targets.

Before battle, Cherno taunts its enemies by smashing its fists together multiple times. Whenever this happens, interconnected panels on the Jaeger's torso fluctuate. Cherno Alpha's Conn-Pod, also known as the Atmoscan, is located at the heart of the Jaeger; making it one of the most secure cockpit environments built for a Jaeger. However, it lacks an escape mechanism; Russian Rangers fight to win against the Kaiju or die trying. Cherno's foot spikes provide additional support and balance to the mechanism. They can be located in one point during patrol/guarding. Cherno's MGS112 Recharging Energy Cell, a nuclear reactor, holds unprecedented energy reserves and incendiary fuel, while acting as a strong decoy for a Kaiju seeking the Jaeger's head.

I know. Leatherback was kind of a coward by attacking Cherno after Otachi had weakened it

I might be wrong for this but I would have loved to hear the Russians say "On our way Typhoon, but you owe us some Vodka in return!" Sorry I play too much Blacks Ops Zombies XD
