Strike Troopers are the ground forces of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps and participant in the Kaiju War. Troopers may find themselves deployed to any Shatterdome on the Pacific Rim. During a Kaiju attack, Troopers are dispatched to the streets of an exclusion zone, laying down ground fire.
They also aid in the evacuation of civilians from cities and toward Anti-Kaiju Shelters. Troopers are described as "elites" and a rarity. Few have the courage to stand their ground in the face of a Kaiju attack without the assistance of a Jaeger.
