    Wanna see what the community thinks. How do you all think it'll play out between the Mark-5s?

    • Well, the technological advantage goes to Bracer Phoenix, having been built nearly 6 years after Striker, but the experience goes to Striker (either with both the Hansen's or not) as it's pilots have experience in a combat environment, compared to the pilots of Bracer Phoenix, who have none.

      Bracer's design as long-range fire support does lend them an early advanatage, as they can engage Striker from a distance, and remain nearly impervious to Striker (considering the fact that Striker's missiles are used only against stationary targets, Bracer can continuously move outside of Striker's arc of fire). If Bracer's torso-mounted cannons prove effective, it's entirely possible that Bracer could incapacitate Striker before any close-combat fighting begins.

      On the other hand, in hand-to-hand combat, I reckon Striker has the upper hand. The sting-blades have greater reach, allowing to Striker to hit Bracer much harder than Bracer can hit back.

      Pilots/Experience are irrelevant, just the Jaegers. Imagine they both have pilots of equal experience.

      Keep in mind Bracer has guns mounted on its left forearm, which would prove to be very useful in close-quarters.

      Can you see an overall winner?

    • i say striker, even though bracer has the cannons in its midsection it is i am assuming the striker is faster the bracer so striker could close in fast enough to sustain miminal damage from the vortex cannons and maybe the missiles to get into hand to hand combat the real question though is if bracer has the morningstar equiped or not. if it does then it may have an advantage and may be able to cripple striker with one good hit and if that was the case then i would have to go with bracer.

    • No Morningstar, that's Titan's weapon originally, and I'm talking about the original Jaegers.

    • ok so then I will have to go with my first answer and say striker because of his speed and sting blades because if I remember correctly bracer has no melee wepons although i am probaly wrong....

      You're right in saying Bracer has no melee weapons (apart from its fists), but the forearm-mounted guns on its left would also be lethal up close. Keep in mind, Bracer also has Anti-Kaiju Missiles.


      Edit: Bracer's left fist is almost fitted with additional armour.

      Edit 2: *also

    • still, it would depend on where striker got hit and whether or not the anti-kaiju missiles are able to track moving objects.

      the left fist may hurt some more though like a boxing glove

      I'm not sure if the AKMs can track, would like to find out though.

      Bad analogy, boxing gloves reduce pain/damage.

      Judging by Striker's missile strike on Mutavore, it looks like the original AKMs are simply "dummy" missiles without a tracking system, or at most a rather rudamentary one. If that changed during the years following the first Kaiju war is unknown.

      I still think that Bracer will beat Striker by pure ranged-weaponry alone, but if Striker uses the environment to its advantage and evades the initial volleys, I think Striker will best it in close-range combat.

      How does the Mutavore fight show that?

      That appears to be the consensus: Bracer at a distance, Striker up-close. Say we put them facing each other with a kilometer between them, and they're in a standard city (HK, NYC, London, etc...), who do you think would win?

      your statment is false. boxing gloves do reduce pain but still make your hand heavier so therefore can auctally increase damage.

      It doesn't matter how heavy your hand is, what matters is how much force it delivered. Boxing gloves reduce the force delivered by increasing impact time. Do you have any concept of basic physics? My statement isn't at all false, and whilst you start learning how the world works (assuming you start), be sure to learn how to spell right.

      I'd lean Bracer, but it's like a 60-40% thing, the gap is not big. Sustained fire and it's own missiles should help keep Striker somewhat offbalance, giving it an edge, and if it gets to melee, the armor means it's not dead, especially if Eurkea suffers damage first.

      Nice post, well said.
