Coyote Tango (コヨーテタンゴ Koyōte Tango?) is the second Mark-1 Japanese Jaeger, launched December 30, 2015. It was one of the oldest Jaegers in active service before its destruction in 2021 during the Kaiju War.[4]


Coyote Tango, piloted by Stacker Pentecost and Tamsin Sevier[5], was deployed in Tokyo, Japan alongside the military to fight the Kaiju Onibaba. During the fight, Tamsin blacked out, leaving Pentecost to pilot Coyote on his own, an act that had never been done before. The battle was partially witnessed by a young Mako Mori, who was being pursued by Onibaba. After the events in Tokyo, both of its pilots were retired on the basis of radiation sickness.[5] Coyote Tango was retired after its second battle against the Kaiju.[1]

The damages sustained in the fight with Onibaba put the Jaeger out of commission for a whole year for repairs.[4] It was kept out of active deployment in order to reinforce the shielding to prevent future pilots radiation exposure from the nuclear reactor. At a later point in time, Coyote Tango is reassigned new pilots, the Tunari Brothers, Gunnar and Vic. On October 9, 2021, the two are deployed in Hawaii with Striker Eureka to fight the Kaiju Ceramander, Coyote Tango's second kill. On November 6, 2022, Coyote Tango was destroyed at St. Lawrence Island.[4]


Coyote Tango is designed to resemble naval warships and Cobra attack helicopters in both color scheme and appearance.[1] Coyote Tango's light armor allows it to perform various deadly maneuvers and has great speed to evade Kaiju attacks. It is also armed with twin long-range ballistic mortar cannons to damage Kaiju from afar; these were supplemented by a forearm-mounted, retractable V-PI EnergyCaster with five modes of modulation - this weapon in particular being considered highly experimental at the time of the Jaeger's launch.[6] Coyote Tango is also tied with Cherno Alpha for the tallest height on a Mark-1 Jaeger.

As a Mark-1 Jaeger, Coyote Tango runs on the power of a nuclear reactor. Given the short amount of time the Pan Pacific Defense Corps had to build the first series of Jaegers in response to the Kaiju threat, none of the Mark-1 series Jaegers were reinforced with protective measures to prevent radiation poisoning. As a result, the Rangers piloting Mark-1's developed cancer-related illnesses from exposure. Coyote Tango's pilots, Tamsin Sevier and Stacker Pentecost developed cancer from the exposure to the Jaeger's nuclear reactor. Both were retired from active duty as a result of their exposure to the reactor.

Known Inconsistencies

  • According Coyote Tango's blueprints, Coyote Tango could be piloted by a single Ranger without risk of seizure from the neural load.
  • According to Pacific Rim: Man, Machines & Monsters, Travis Beacham[3] and the novelization, Coyote Tango's status is "K.I.A." (destroyed during the course of the war). However, the artbook subsequently contradicts its status in its biographical description, which states it was merely retired because of the dangers of the nuclear reactor.[1]
  • According to Man, Machines & Monsters and the stats card, Coyote Tango weighs 2,312 tons. However, the blueprints states Coyote Tango's weight is 7,450 tons.
