"What is a Jaeger?"
"A Jaeger is the pinnacle of human invention. When the monsters came, we did not wait for heroes to fall from the sky and save us, we saved ourselves, innovation is our superpower!
―Jaeger Uprising Propaganda Ad
Final Four Jaegers

From left to right: Mark 4, Mark 3, Mark 5, and Mark 1 Jaegers.

Jaegers ([ˈjɛːɡɐ], Jäger, Hunter) are mobile exoskeleton weapons created by the Jaeger Program. Jaeger's became the first and only line of defense against the Kaiju's. The word Jaeger is German for "Hunter". Jaegers are considered "awesome" by the general populus.


The Jaeger Program was first developed by Dr. Lars Gottlieb shortly after Jasper Schoenfeld proposed the idea for the Jaeger at the 2014 conference in Seoul, South Korea following the fourth Kaiju attack on Sydney, Australia in September. 

Prior to the conference, Schoenfeld looked for a more efficient way of killing the monsters without the use of nuclear weapons. Upon witnessing his son playing with a toy robot and toy monster in his room, he came across the inspiration for giant humanoid mechs which could stand up to the Kaiju without resorting to nuclear weapons. Dr. Jasper Schoenfeld's idea was approved by the United Nations.

Kaiju War Industry Edit

No good fight can be put up without some fearsome weapons! The Anti-Kaiju weapon engineering company Shao Industries is the main producer of fearsome weapons like the iconic Plasma Cannon since 2025, but new companies like the Icelandic Arms Developer Swanscov & Karim Armaments or the german private company developing "Höllschrei", an Automatic AKM Launcher stepped into the light after the attack on MegaTokyo.


The “Mark" label assigned to each Jaeger refers to the launch schedule. The production program was divided into five annual roll-outs that began in 2015 and ended in 2019. Six Mark-1’s were deployed in 2015, followed by the Mark-2’s in 2016 and the Mark-3's in 2017. Mark-4 and Mark-5 Jaegers were the last produced in 2018 and 2019. Jaegers have no standardized design template; body-types vary widely within each “mark." This level of diversity among the Jaeger designs and weaponry was a tactical response to the high variability in Kaiju shapes.

All Mark-1 through Mark-3 Jaegers utilized nuclear reactors, which put their pilots at substantial risk of developing cancer. Gipsy Danger and Cherno Alpha were the last active nuclear-powered Jaegers to play a part in the continued defense of Hong Kong and mission to assault the Breach. Mark-4 and Mark-5 Jaegers, however, used digital technology, minimizing the dangers to the pilots inside the Conn-Pod.

Unfortunately, the development of the Jaeger program has not come cheaply. The cost of building the Mark-5 Jaeger Striker Eureka, for example, was reputed to be over a hundred billion dollars, more than ten times the cost of a nuclear aircraft carrier.

Additionally, Jaegers build between the 2025 and 2027 were know as Mark-5, due to the fact that they were never officially launched or used during this period of grace,

The rise of category 5-6 Kajiu,made Pan Atlantic Defense Corps to make a new roll-out starting from 2028. Mark-5’s were deployed in 2025 to 2030, followed by the Mark-6’s in 2031 to 2036 and the Mark-7's in 2037 to 2042. Mark-8, Mark-9 and Mark -10 Jaegers were the last produced around 2043 to 2050.

Mark Designation Edit

Due to the nature of the new Jaegers being rolled out after the First Kaiju War, some Shatterdomes have taken to listing Jaegers based on their tech equivalent rather than their Launch Date. This is because Jaegers are no longer being rolled out in batches, but rather the moment they are operable to deal with the threat of the Kaiju.

This new "Tech Equivalence" system allows for quicker and faster field evaluation of a Jaegers worth against a current target. Most well-known Jaegers are not often subject to this, as they can be easily recognised most of the time. Unfortunately not all personnel can pull the stats of a just-sighted Jaeger when Comms are down.

The system works in recognising standard parts, such as the T-18 Angel Wings torso, a Mark-5 piece of equipment, and an Energy Cell Refinery "head", a Mark-1 piece, and drawing an average between them. This under-construction Jaeger would be classified as a "Mark-3 Tech" equivalent. On the field, this translates to "Good for anything up to Cat-III, Cat-IV risky, anything bigger and it'll need backup". 

Due to its popularity by civilians, Jaegers can be accepted as "Mark-5" or "Mark-V". They don't seem to care between numbers and roman numerals.

Jaeger names Edit

Jaegers are usually named after their own nations Like Crimson Typhoon references China's "Red" political ideology (Communism is associated with the color and red is the principle color of their flag). some of names are reused as some wanted to honour some of their heroic jaegers in first kaiju war.

Precursor Jaegers Edit

After the Seattle Jaeger Rampage, the Precursors decided to build their own Precursor Jaegers. You can see a list of all known Precursor Jaegers here
