Pacific Rim: RISING VALOR by ZEroePHYRt Pacific Rim: RISING VALOR by ZEroePHYRt
A custom Jaeger designed for IGN's "Design your own Jaeger" contest.
Modeled after a knight, it's made for high-mobility and articulation to better melee the crap out of Kaijuu.
It has 5 nuclear engines, located in the chest, shoulders and thighs. The exhaust flames and surface temperature are used as a defensive weapon.
It's also very tall, at about 54 humans high, about 30-40ft higher than the current five Jaegers.

It should've probably been the UK/European Union's Jaeger, but putting it next to the Eiffel tower was a cool idea in my head.

Out of the fan made Jaeger naming so far, I find Rising Valor quite appropriate with naming rules in the movie.

Thanks! I tried to match everything about the movie as much as possible, and the naming scheme of "put two cool/formidable/military words together that may or may not have anything to do with the robot" is really important when separating a Jaeger from other giant mecha.
I don't get why there are so many entries like "Ghost" and "Beta Blocker"

Really quite outstanding! (no pun intended:P)

Great design, wonderful presentation and layout. The mech doesn't give the appearance of being over-powered, but nicely balanced in weaponry and agility.

Thanks! I really wanted to make it seem cool, formidable and universe-fitting without being over-powered. In fact, it's missing spammable long-range weaponry like every other Jaeger seems to have (in the form of chest cannons and etc) so it might even be at a slight disadvantage.

I even denoted it as a Mark VIII (3 Mks newer than the ones in the movie) to make its more eccentric design/construction more reasonable. I really tried to put a lot of thought into everything. I really hope I make the top 15
