Pacific Rim Uprising

New this month Question: If Kaiju can be killed by dropping something heavy on them from orbit, why spend all that time and effort on Jaegers when a satellite defence system armed with tungsten smart rods would have done the job?

New this month Answer: Each new Kaiju is adapted differently, often based upon what has killed previous Kaiju. This is why the Jaegers have such varied designs. If they relied upon a satellite firings rods from space, there would be no defence when a new generation of Kaiju arrived, adapted to this tactic. Additionally, producing a sufficient number of satellites to cover the entire planet would be a huge task, whereas the Jaeger technology already exists.
