Oh god help I made a Pacific Rim character *brick’d* xD
YEAH I’M SUPPOSED TO BE DOING ACTUAL SHIT BUT THIS IDIOT WAS RUNNING AROUND IN MY HEAD ALL DAY AND KEPT ME UP LAST NIGHT OKAY.
Meet Heidekrieger. A Swiss Jaeger :’D Yes I know that Switzerland is landlocked and on the other side of the world from where most of the Kaiju action takes place BUT that doesn’t mean they can’t be part of the action!
The Swiss have an old history of being mercernaries. And in this world they totally see an opportunity here ahahhaha
The Swiss, whom have an excellent engineering history, want in on the action - and Heidekrieger happened.
This Jaeger is shorter than the average Jaeger types in the world but this was on purpose - it gives Heidekrieder much more speed and agility than the larger robots. It’s modeled after a Steinbock (Ibex) and it can literally ram Kaijus with those horns (also why the head is proportionally larger than other Jaegers, it’s meant to take a hit. Which also means the pilots are probably not in the head but in the chest for protection.)
This Jaeger primarily uses a helebard weapon of sorts, as well as a giant crossbow of sorts for ranged attacks (the two arms combine into one huge gun thing WHEE) but has a bunch of little blades and smaller weapons tucked away Swiss-army-knife-style
The crossbow projectiles are also explosive - so they can both spear the Kaiju and make things go BOOM
There’s a whole lot more on this guy but I should get back to my actual work lol whoops!
…I also have a Norwegian Jaeger :’D though that one needs more refinement.
I need to stop. Darn you Tumblr and all the amazing Pacific Rim art on here it’s got my brain running away like WHEEEEEEEEEEE
