Can't really conceive of Latvia needing or being able to afford a Jaeger, but here's one anyhow. (My Dad's family was from Latvia, fled during the war, and now my cousin and his family have gone back.)

i think that in face of destruction every country that have army will tranfer all funds that would usually be used to fund military, to jeager program, if that will help to protect against kaiju, and ocourse, many countries have budgets wich are created in 2-5-10 year period, for things that need to be replaced with new, .... that money can easly be tranfered to jeager projects. And beside who say that it must be type V and most expensive jeager,

well done Canis, cant wait to see more not only from you, from rest of the gang, to bad we dont have more parts to use in that designer,

The thing is, these mechs are ~300' tall and weigh in at ~2-3K tons. That's kinda of weird, when you consider a modern USN destroyer is 10K tons and 500' in length. A modern USN nuclear powered attack submarine is less than 380' in length and less than 8K tons in weight. These things are actually pretty light by comparison!

Similarly, a single aforementioned Arleigh Burke costs around 1.85 Billion USD, while the Virginia comes in at around 2.5 Billion USD. That's pricy, yes, but several nations around the world would be able to handle that, basically any nation that is dabbling in stealth corvettes or larger right now should be able to field at least one of these guys, right?

Hell, the Shatter Domes themselves would easily be far, far more expensive in nature to build and maintain. Each was intended to handle what, a dozen or more units apiece?

I do wonder what happened with the concept of mass production here, economies of scale being what they are and all. I know they are pricy, but what aren't they being produced at the same rate as destroyers and nuclear powered submarines? (I am deliberately avoiding any spoilers as much as possible, as others haven't seen the jaw dropping awesomeness that is Pacific Rim as of yet...but I rigorously deny being biased in any way, shape or form!!! :P )

Now, now, none of this "making sense" malarkey. Actual science has no business showing its face in a monster movie. One of the Wikis says Striker Eureka cost about 100 Billion dollars, though it doesn't provide a source. http://pacificrim.wikia.com/wiki/Jaeger
All the advanced systems and materials required would be massively expensive.

Striker Eureka is the most advanced jeager in movie, but nevertheless i doubt it cost that much. But smaller countires would be able to build from 1-2 (MkI ti Mk IV) jeagers without much of a trouble, as gryphon said jeager is actually lighter then most of todays equipment like AB destroyers, various subs, and not to mention carriers.

No bloody chance that one jeager could cost more then a nimitz class carrier. So in short, every country that have stable economy should be able to buy or build itself a jeager. Although i think that buying jeagers from other countires would be better, it would cut the some costs.

And yet watch the logic in the movie, 21 country join together and building the jeagers, if the other countires( and there is almost 200 on world) join up, there would be over 60-80 mybe even 100 jeagers built from 2015-2025. There wouldnt be problems with defending.
