Azure Defiant is a Mark-VI Philippines Jaeger and was among the legendary group of Jaegers who killed five Category IV Kaijus during the Quarter Coast Brawl. It was destroyed in Operation Extinction.
Azure Defiant was constructed in the Jaeger Academy’s Jaeger testing facility, Miami branch after the Akula incident in Manila. Launched on 5/17/2026, Azure Defiant was stationed at the "Tanggulan" Shatterdome in Manila. It was tasked to defend the coastline of Luzon. Piloted by childhood friends Mark Panganiban and Erin Santos, the Mark-Vl Jaeger is accredited with nine Kaiju kills in its short run of three years.
The Defiant’s first combat mission was in Baguio on 6/6/2026, against the Kaiju Matang Bakal. Defiant was deployed sixteen miles from the coast of Baguio to intercept the Kaiju en route to the city. The Jaeger’s Tesla rods, two long retractable pillars with each emitting a lethal amount of electricity were more than a match for the Kaiju. The battle was won with Defiant shoving both of its rods into the Kaiju’s mouth, electrocuting it from the inside.
The Defiant’s next deployment was on November 14, 2026 in Dinagat Island to combat the Kaiju Fivehorns. On August 6, 2032 Azure Defiant was assigned on its first team mission. Allied with the Jaegers Red Liberty and Rising Odyssey, the trio were tasked to take down the agile Kaiju Baga in Baler. The battle resulted with Odyssey losing both of its arms while holding the Kaiju still for the other two Jaegers to take a hit at it. The Defiant’s second team mission was on December 23, 2034 in the shores of Caraga where they intercepted the towering Category IV Kaiju Haruto. The Kaiju almost crushed Defiant’s Conn-Pod if it weren’t for its quick minded decision to rupture the Kaiju’s arms by stabbing it both with full powered Tesla rods.
The Quarter Coast Brawl Edit
On the night of April 11, 2035, the Azure Defiant was deployed into its third and last team mission along with Red Liberty and Rising Odyssey in the coasts of Legaspi to intercept the Category IV Kaiju Santelmo. Upon meeting contact with the Kaiju a quarter mile from the coast, the trio were ambushed by two Category IV Kaijus from behind. Defiant discovered that Santelmo has the ability to conceal the presence of its fellow Kaijus but not itself. The Kaijus overwhelmed the Jaegers starting with Rising Odyssey, where all of its limbs were ripped apart as the Kaijus ganged up on the Jaeger. In order to counter the Kaijus’ strategy of ganging up a single Jaeger, Azure Defiant activated both of its Tesla rods to take the Kaijus head on while Red Liberty used its hand cannons and shoulder rockets as fire support. The Jaegers’ strategy worked for awhile which resulted in killing two Kaijus save for Santelmo who used its allies as some sort of meat shield, but then another pair of Kaijus attacked Liberty from behind which prevented it from giving Defiant its much needed fire support. Realizing that they’re fighting a losing battle, the two remaining Jaegers decided to lure out the Kaijus far into the sea as much as possible while they detonating both of their energy cores to kill the Kaijus once and for all.
The Jaeger was restored in 2038 due to its fighting skills and the need for it to attack the Pacific Breach in 2055. It is piloted by the Joseph brothers, Mark Anthony and Erin Joseph
second history Edit
in 2053,Azure Defiant killed Zongan.
Pacific Rim 2 Edit
It was chosen to be one of the Mark 6 Jaegers to destroy the Pacific Breach in Operation Extinction. It was stationed in the Singapore Shatterdome. On 6/1/2055, the event The Last Line of Defense occurred,and the Jaeger was told to stay at its post, as the Jaeger was needed to protect Taegeuk Seraphim to breach through during Operation Extinction.
Azure Defiant’s paint job of deep sea blue and trimmed around with red were based on the colors of the Philippine flag. Since Panganiban and Santos were practitioners of Arnis, the Jaeger’s body language resembles that of an Arnis Fighter, which is why it was equipped with Tesla rods, a weapon in the shape of a long pillar designed primarily for hand-to-hand combat and joint-locking.
The Defiant’s Tkr7 Coolers maintain temperature by channeling seawater through its circulatory coolant system. The 78BD/Razor-Torque Drives gives the Defiant greater flexibility compared to other Mark Vl Jaegers. The Defiant’s Compressed Nuclear Heavy Pack is designed to emit occasional short bursts of power that are a little stronger from its designated flow to give the jaeger additional speed should the pilots need it. The Heavy Pack can also be used as a miniature nuclear bomb as a last resort, eradicating everything within 500 meter radius.It's restoration changed from nuclear to fusion burst energy meaning it can explode with a 700 meter radius.
Since the defiant is designed more for speed rather than durability, it is equipped with 11YT/Shoulder thrusters, which gives the Jaeger increased movement speed and stabilizes its weight whilst moving as well. The Azure Defiant also features terra grips on its legs to prevent itself from getting knocked down easily by Kaijus larger than itself. The grips can also be used to stop the Defiant mid-sprint, allowing quick maneuvers around the battlefield.
Each of the Defiant’s hands is equipped the P-67 Tesla rods, long pillars of steel that are able to generate more than a thousand volts of electricity, which can electrify a Kaiju several meters away if dipped into the ocean’s surface. It also has Staunton type 24pk digger knuckles equipped with three four-meter drills designed to puncture through a Kaiju’s skin upon impact.
