Gipsy Danger overlooks the harbour
|Notable Events||Double Event: Otachi, Leatherback attack (January 8, 2025)|
Victoria Harbour (formerly the Hong Kong Harbour) is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in Hong Kong. It was the site of the first recorded Double Event in 2025.
Hong Kong Incident
When the Hong Kong Shatterdome's tracking system picked up two Category IV Kaiju signatures emerging from the breach, Stacker Pentecost ordered Jaegers Crimson Typhoon, Cherno Alpha and Striker Eureka to defend the miracle mile and prevent the Kaiju from reaching the city.
Otachi was the first Kaiju to emerge from the harbour and attacked Cherno Alpha and Crimson Typhoon. What appeared to be a controlled situation quickly fell out of the control of the Jaegers when Otachi gained the upper hand against the the Mark-4 and Mark-1 Jaeger. Striker Eureka attempted to aid Cherno Alpha after Crimson Typhoon was beheaded, but failed to reach the Jaeger in time.
Leatherback emerged from the harbour last and attacked Cherno Alpha behind. While Striker Eureka fought Otachi, Leatherback drowned Cherno Alpha's pilots, trapped within the Jaeger itself, before crushing its Conn-Pod. Following the destruction of Cherno Alpha, Leatherback uses a EMP attack and disabled Striker Eureka and the Shatterdome. Otachi entered the city in search of Newton Geiszler while Leatherback toyed with Striker Eureka.
After Striker Eureka's pilots, Chuck and Herc Hansen attack Leatherback with flare guns, Leatherback attempted to crush the Jaeger when Gipsy Danger arrived and was dropped into the harbour by V-50 Jumphawks. Leatherback engaged Gipsy Danger in combat and lost its EMP organ when the Mark-3 Jaeger tore it from its back. Countering, Leatherback grappled Gipsy Danger and tossed it into the Port.
