Crimson Typhoon (暴風赤紅, Crimson Tempest) is a Mark-4 Chinese Jaeger from Pacific Rim. It is piloted by the three Wei Tang Brothers.
Constructed in the province of Changzhou, China, Crimson Typhoon is launched on August 22, 2018. Piloted by the Wei Tang Brothers, Cheung, Jin and Hu, Crimson is accredited with seven Kaiju kills and the successful defense of the Port of Hong Kong seven times.
Crimson Typhoon is dropped into Victoria Harbour, alongside Striker Eureka and Cherno Alpha, by helicopter prior to the battle to confront the kaiju. Striker Eureka would be unable to assist the two, as Marshal Pentecost did not want to risk the Jaeger being damaged prior to the assault on the Breach. This order would prove disastrous, as neither Cherno Alpha nor Crimson Typhoon were prepared to face Otachi or Leatherback.
Otachi engages Crimson, springing out of the ocean and sweeping its barbed tail into the Jaegers side like a flail, knocking Crimson off balance and sending the Jaeger flying. After recovering the triplets use their signature attack: the "Thundercloud" formation and activate all three of Crimson's rotating claws, and proceed to slice Otachi's head and chest.
They lose their advantage when Otachi grabs two of Crimson's claws and crushes one of them. Crimson counter attacks, using its flexibility to hop over it. The Jaeger then tosses the Kaiju over to Cherno Alpha, who grabs her in a headlock. As Crimson comes back to attack Otachi again, its pilots are unaware of the pincer at the end of Otachi's tail. After knocking them off balance a second time Otachi brings the pincer down on the Conn-Pod from overhead and grabs hold of it before the pilots can recover, and proceeds to crush it, killing the triplets. Otachi then tears what's left of the Conn-Pod from the Jaeger's shoulders and tosses it into the bay. The beheaded Jaeger collapses into the harbour afterwards.
