Crimson Typhoon by Sideswipe217 Crimson Typhoon by Sideswipe217
Here's Crimson Typhoon from Pacific Rim The Video Game. Enjoy Guys

Crimson Typhoon is a Mark-4 Chinese Jaeger piloted by the Wei triplets in active service in the Kaiju War.

History: Constructed in the province of Changzhou, China, Crimson Typhoon is launched on August 22, 2018. Piloted by the Wei triplets, Cheung, Jin and Hu, Crimson is accredited with seven Kaiju kills and the successful defense of the Port of Hong Kong seven times.

Crimson Typhoon is dropped into Victoria Harbour, alongside Striker Eureka and Cherno Alpha, by helicopter prior to the battle to confront the Kaiju. Striker Eureka would be unable to assist the two, as Marshall Pentecost did not want to risk the Jaeger being damaged prior to the assault onto the breach. This order would prove disastrous, as neither Cherno Alpha or Crimson Typhoon were prepared to face Otachi or Leatherback.

Otachi engages Crimson, springing out of the ocean and using its barbed tail to attack. The triplets use the "Thundercloud" formation and activate all three of Crimson's rotating claws, and proceed to slice Otachi's head and chest.

They lost their advantage when Otachi grabs two of Crimson's claws and crushes them. Crimson counter attacks, grabbing Otachi's claws, using its flexibility to hop over it. The Jaeger tosses the Kaiju over to Cherno Alpha, who grabs her in a headlock. As Crimson comes back to attack Otachi again, its pilots are ignorant of the pincer at the end of Otachi's tail. Unprepared, Crimson Typhoon's Conn-Pod is crushed, killing the triplets. Otachi tears it from its shoulders and tosses it into the bay. The incapacitated Jaeger collapses into the bay.

Features: Unique among the Jaegers, Crimson Typhoon is piloted by three Rangers as opposed to the traditional two. The Conn-Pod, designed by Dr. Caitlin Lightcap, functions and accommodates a triple Neural Handshake and three-pilot control. Two pilots to control the Jaeger's basic movements in the front, and a third pilot to act as gunner behind his co-pilots.

Crimson is constructed with full titanium core alloys and fifty diesel engine per muscle strand. Crimson Typhoon's three arms allow for great mobility and range in combat; the fighting style of the Wei Tang triplets grant Crimson the grace of a practiced martial artist. Broad shouldered, Crimson Typhoon uses its shoulders to defend against punches and shield itself, allowing it to strike back immediately, rolling with the left shoulder. It also features three rear jets which allows for an increase in forward movement for a limited amount of time. They can be used to aid in the the Jaeger's ability to leap into the air, often decreasing the distance between her and a kaiju to land a melee attack. These rear jets can ignite independently of each other increaing the speed of its melee strikes, as the torso twists during the slashing movement of the Jaeger's arms. They can be seen during Crimson Typhoon's signature attack, "Thundercloud Formation".

Crimson's OSIH Achilles shock absorbers are attached with magnetorheological dampers, allowing for better balance on an array of terrain in combat; the complex labyrinth of balance plates and pressure sensors housed within the feet calculates the thousands of micro-adjustments per second required to perform maneuvers. Crimson's 34RO111 STERNO Piston, while a trade-off component, allows for the Conn-Pod's increased flexibility around the neck's connection.

Crimson's 11X/// Triples Control Device enables the tri-pilot system; the Conn-Pod itself acts as a telescope, allowing for greater vision in combat. Also, its pioneering Liquid Software systems, 28-GO, provide the lowest circuitry footprint of any Jaeger which enables the Conn-Pod design to be sleeker and more situationally aware. The flexibility awarded to Crimson Typhoon allows it to rotate its lower torso and legs a full 180 degrees, perform high kicks and lift its body in order to perform flips. Crimson Typhoon's IB22 Plasmacaster located on the left arm is a significant upgrade from the I-19 Plasmacaster installed in Gipsy Danger, being three times more powerful with the addition of multi-layered CELL-TIP technology which enables specific targeting of Kaiju skeletal structure. The only downside to this firepower is the massive amount of energy required, with each shot being slaved to a 6.8 second charge time. Crimson also has retractable, circular saws built into its hands, which can give it an additional edge against Kaiju.

This needs to be the one of the main Jaegers in the inevitable sequel. Pacific Rim was a great movie, it just needed more Crimson... and Thundercloud Formation... and Wei Triplets in their badass pilot suit.

We hardly got to know the glory of the Elbow Spike.
