Chapter: Part I, page 11
Transcript:
Name: Gipsy Danger

Generation: Mark III

Date of Service: July 10, 2017

Date of Termination: n/a

Ranger Team Assigned:
Yancy Becket, Raleigh Becket
Current base of operations: Anchorage Shatterdome

Mission History:
Gipsy Danger is credited with four kaiju kills: LA-17 “Yamarashi," Los Angeles, October 17, 2017; PSJ-18, Puerto San Jose, May 20, 2018; SD-19 “Clawhook", San Diego, July 22, 2019; MN-19, Manila, December 16, 2019.

Operating System:
BLPK 4.1 with liquid circuitry neural pathways

Power System:
Nuclear vortex turbine

Armaments:
I-19 particle dispersal cannon, biology-aware plasma weapon, forearm mounted [retractable]
S-11 dark matter pulse launcher [internal mount]

Notes:
Improved reactor shielding installed post-rollout. All Rangers who have deployed in pre-Mark IV Jaegers are required to maintain a daily dose of Metharocin for the duration of their service in the Pan-Pacific Defense Corp.

The project of restoring and upgrading Gipsy Danger is complete. An updated list of improvements follows.

Upgraded Reactor Shielding

  • Restored plasma reservoirs for both cannons
  • Overhauled initiation protocols for plasma cannons, reducing warmup delays by 15%
  • Integrated post-Mark III advances in Conn-Pod interface technology
  • Restored and updated hydraulics and neuromuscular assemblies resulting in faster reaction times and increased endurance
  • Restored painted insignia
  • Chain Sword installed and fully integrated into neuro-command systems
  • Other minor improvements in aesthetics and functionality
  • Reactor fuel rods replenished and coolant circulation system rebuilt
  • New venting systems installed for improved reactor efficiency and venting of waste heat
  • Escape mechanisms tested and components updated per most recent PPDC specifications
  • Thorough vetting of upgrades demonstrates complete integration into existing *circuitry undamaged during Gipsy Danger’s last combat deployment. Tendo Choi has observed vetting and simulations, and is in agreement with this assessment.
  • Screening of potential Drift partners for Raleigh Becket is complete. Five candidate finalists have been briefed and are prepared for physical trials in the *Kwoon as soon as Becket is cleared to meet them.

Personal Aside
This candidate strenuously objects to being removed from the list of finalists.

Name: Gipsy Danger

Generation: Mark III [upgraded 2023-2025; no further classification]

Date of Service: July 10, 2017

Date of Termination: January 12, 2025

Mission History:
Gipsy Danger is credited with four kaiju kills: LA-17 “Yamarashi", Los Angeles, October 17, 2017; PSJ-18, Puerto San Jose, May 20, 2018; SD-19 “Clawhook", San Diego, July 22, 2019; MN-19, Manila, December 16, 2019; AK-20, “Knifehead", Anchorage, February 29, 2020; HK-20A, “Leatherback", and HK-20B, “Otachi", Hong Kong, January 8, 2025; GS-25A, “Raiju", and GS-25B, “Scunner", Guam Sea, January 12, 2025; GS-25C, “Slattern", Breach*, January 12, 2025.

Detailed to Hong Kong Shatterdome June 21, 2023, for overhaul and reactivation under auspices of Mark III Restoration Project.

  • Precise physical location of this kill uncertain, and all evidence was destroyed at Gipsy Danger’s self-destruction during the course of Operation Pitfall.

Operating System:
BLPK 4.1 with liquid circuitry neural pathways [upgraded to custom May 1, 2023]

Power System:
Nuclear vortex turbine [upgraded and restored 2023]

Armaments:
I-19 particle dispersal cannon, biology-aware plasma weapon, forearm mounted [retractable]
S-11 dark matter pulse launcher [internal mount]
Upgraded as of Mark III Restoration Project: GD-6A Chain Swords, dual-mode: segmented chainwhip or cable-reinforced nano-edged single blade

Notes:
Remains never recovered. Jaeger presumably vaporized by reactor overload. Any remaining components are presumed to be in the Anteverse.
Opposition from three kaiju, including the first and only known Category V [Slattern [qv]], disabled Striker Eureka early in Operation Pitfall. Its crew [S. Penecost, C. Hansen] detonated the nuclear payload, sacrificing themselves to open a path for Gipsy Danger to successfully close the breach. Striker Eureka’s last confirmed kaiju kill, Scunner, occurred at the moment of their self-destruction.
