Striker Eureka by Sideswipe217 Striker Eureka by Sideswipe217
Here's Striker Eureka from Pacific Rim The Video Game. Enjoy Guys

Striker Eureka is an Australian Mark V Jaeger designed to defend the coastline of Australia from the Kaiju during the Kaiju War.

History: Constructed five years before the closure of the Jaeger Program, Striker Eureka was launched on November 2, 2019. Piloted by the father and son team, Hercules and Chuck Hansen, Striker Eureka is the strongest Jaeger currently in the field of combat against the Kaiju. It is the first and only Mark-5 series Jaeger, holding the best stats of all currently deployed Jaegers.

The Australian division of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps invested a reported $100 billion dollars into the creation of Striker Eureka to create the strongest Jaeger on the planet.

Striker Eureka is accredited with over nine kills prior to 2025, either solo or combined. The Jaeger is sent to same number of locations across the Pacific Rim. The Mark-5 Jaeger is at its most active during the year 2024, combating the likes of six Kaiju in Los Angeles, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia and Mexico.

Of the nine deployments, Striker's first mission and Jaeger team deployment is in Hawaii alongside the Mark-1 Jaeger, Coyote Tango, now piloted by Gunnar and Vic Tunari, to fight the Kaiju, Ceramander.

Following the deterioration of the Defense Corps' defense against the Kaiju, Striker Eureka is the last Jaeger active among the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.. In 2025, the United Nations chose to cut funding for the Jaeger Program and disband its pilots. Striker Eureka and the Hansens are retired early on as they are no longer needed.

January 2, 2025, Sydney is attacked by a Category IV Kaiju, Mutavore. The Kaiju breaks through the Anti-Kaiju Wall and invades the city. Striker is immediately deployed and engages Mutavore close-range in the city as civilians rush to escape the streets turned battlefield. Using its anti-Kaiju missiles, Striker successfully kills the Kaiju.

Despite its apparent necessity in Australia, the United Nations has Striker relocated to Hong Kong's Shatterdome with Crimson Typhoon, Cherno Alpha and Gipsy Danger where it would continue its service for the last eight months of funding available to Marshall Stacker Pentecost. The Marshall's intention is to use Striker as the carrier for the thermonuclear bomb during Operation Pitfall; Crimson, Cherno and Gipsy Danger would act as its protection and provide the time necessary to bomb the breach connecting Earth to the Anteverse.

As the remainder of the Defense Corps prepares for Operation Pitfall, the occurrence of a Double Event changes the circumstances of all four Jaegers. Crimson Typhoon, Cherno Alpha and Striker Eureka are deployed in the Victoria Harbour where Otachi emerges and attacks Crimson and Cherno.

Striker is ordered to remain out of the battle and defend the coastline, its necessity to the mission to destroy the breach out in the Pacific hindering its ability to be an active participant.

The unexpected arrival of Leatherback follows the destruction of Crimson Typhoon and the deaths of its pilots. Cherno Alpha is double teamed by Otachi and Leatherback, prompting the Hansens to disobey Pentecost's orders and engage the enemy, though they fail to save Cherno Alpha from being destroyed. They attack Otachi, gaining the advantage without much trouble. However, as it prepares to finish the Kaiju with its missiles, Leatherback attacks from behind and disables Striker Eureka with an EMP burst.

Trapped inside, the Hansens are forced to escape to Striker Eureka's shoulders while the Leatherback circles menacingly. They threaten Leatherback and fire flares into two of its left eyes. Provoked, Leatherback prepares to smash Striker Eureka when Gipsy Danger arrives on the scene in time to save it and its pilots from destruction.

January 12, 2025, Striker Eureka is repaired and prepped for the mission to the portal. With Herc injured, Pentecost takes his place as Chuck's co-pilot. Gispy Danger and Striker are airlifted to the breach's location and dropped down into the deepest part of the Pacific Ocean. Striker prepares to deliver the payload, but both Jaegers are stopped by Scunner, Raiju and Slattern. With the arrival of the Category V Kaiju, the other Kaiju attempt to separate Gipsy Danger from Striker Eureka in an ambush.

Slattern attacks Striker with its triple-crown tail, damaging its primary weapon, the missile launcher. In the battle against Slattern, Striker and the payload are further damaged. Pentecost and Chuck are unable to fire the payload manually. Deciding to take out the remaining Kaiju, Scunner and Slattern, Pentecost urges Gipsy Danger to reach the portal and use its nuclear reactor to destroy it. Striker Eureka arms the nuclear payload to buy Mako and Raleigh time. The subsequent explosion of the Jaeger manages to kill Scunner and its pilots but it only severely wounds Slattern.

Features: The strongest of the Jaegers, Striker Eureka's fighting style is akin to that of a dirty boxer or brutal brawler; stemming primarily from its pilots, Chuck and Herc Hansen's fighting style. Striker Eureka's speed and agility allow it to combat and kill Kaiju far quicker than the previous Jaeger series produced, its T-16 Angel Wings acting as stabilizers to maintain aerodynamic balance during the turbulence of burst combat.

Striker Eureka's 4.211 "Brass Knuckles" are a temperature-resistant brass-steel compound cast around the joints of each finger extension, adding greatly to the impact potential of each punch. In turn, they're backed a pair of twin retractable Assault Mount 3.25 "Sting-Blades" laced with carbon nanotubes that channel thermal energy at temperatures over three hundred degrees Fahrenheit, wounding and cauterizing Kaiju in close combat.

Striker's six-barreled WMB2x90 Anti-Kaiju Missile chest launcher is equipped with eighteen individual K-Stunner warheads that kill Kaiju with a direct hit. Striker Eureka contains a TY escape pod in the back of its Conn-Pod, allowing pilots to eject in the face of defeat; and a escape hatch at the top of its head akin to that of Coyote Tango. Lastly, the Striker's 90ER11 amber platinum visor is equipped with advanced photochromic displays, allowing four planes of situational awareness.

The developers are running out of ideas.
When i saw AnonymousAffection's video about Striker,i noticed he exactly moved like,and punched like Coyote tango.
Hovewer,i think they will firstly release the kaijus,then the remaining Jaegers.

They'd better. As for Striker he's suppose to be a scrapper. He fights dirty, hard and to win. He's the outback guy; Rough and rugged, not intimated easily, if left with just a toothpick he'll fight with that toothpick all the way to the bitter end.

ok, this is by Far my most Favorite Jaeger.

The Blades, missile launching chest and it's angel-like wings make it rather impressive!

Striker Eureka certainly is a Kaiju slayer
