Custom Jaeger Defender Gamma New Zealand by rs2studios Custom Jaeger Defender Gamma New Zealand by rs2studios
Wanted to design a heavy artillery "tank" Jaeger that could support other Jaegers during team drops. So introducing Defender Gamma from New Zealand to my custom Shatterdome.

Firepower does not equate resilience.
Cherno was a withstander, this is a destroyer.

If you read the description, this is a "tank" Jaeger. That means it can take in a ton of damage, and return just as much.

Referring to the firepower of tanks, not the resilience.

Heavy firepower and heavy resilience goes hand in hand. A tank in our world has both heavy armor to absorb fire and the ability to return fire in kind.

Not necessarily. Self propelled artillery (which seems to be what this Jaeger is going for) is usually more lightly armoured because it's not supposed to go into the actual fight but bombard or support. Armour is expensive and heavy so they don't pile it on when it's not needed.

But don't you think they'd anticipate the strength of the Kaiju? Surely they'd assume even the support Jaeger would get into close combat.

Aye, but still not as much as the close-in brawlers that are guaranteed to get mauled as a part of every mission..
