Discuss?

Also, does anybody have anything on the fluff for them?

A prime candidate for worst unit in the game? 😅

The SMG + e/mitter looks kinda cool. Super cheap AD specialist is handy. 
But that .5 SWC makes about as much sense as Bipandra's. 
My guess is that after the Krakot being maybe a bit too good for generic Merc they wanted to dial it back with the next one. Looks like they succeeded quite handily, I might consider fielding one with a Joan Lt. but that'd be about it for now.

A fairly cheap infiltrating specialist with weapons meant for flanking. 

I dig it.

Ugly, grainy, diarrhea of a profile.  At this point, humanity should terminate their alliance with the Tohaa, since it seems all the Tohaa give us is crap.

And you feel the need to go and say it in every subsection you see it been discussed, don't you? look, I ignored the comments on the Tohaa, but seriously tone the dressing of your dissatisfaction  down a bit, ok?

I don't get all the hate for Cube Jager profile, my local community seem to think  that it's overbloated with useless skills, but I play Vanilla CA, and would run it A LOT, it's Irregular, but you would spend orders on it anyway, so that's not a drawback. And when it's just 18 points for a specialist that can get to objectives sorta easier and actually capable of killing something with SMG or doing some nasty E/mitter shot at someone's  back it's just great, again, for 18 points, and CA don't have a lot of useful things at that range specialist-wise. also it's cheaper than Cadmus and don't need another order just to start doing anything, is a specialist, and AD:combat jump isn't used all that much anyway,  so for CA I think it's a great addition.

Varies on your list but I dont see much use for  medic component in vanilla ca as i'm probably playing that for the ei aspects. It is in the running for objective grabbing but only because the Fraacta has the expensive hacking device.

I play mostly vanilla CA and I can't see myself taking a cube jaeger. For the same amount of points I can get an m drone or a Kurgat shotgunner. But AD isn't fantastic in my meta. Too many mines, cheap warbands and peripheral weapons waiting for you over there.

He's an odd cookie. A specialist primed with weapons to kill heavy targets, but rather low stats.

I dunno even the mono is pure bloat. Makes advancing your TAG to suppress and neglecting to cover its flank properly a pretty dicey proposition.

AD Paramedics are awesome. This guy alongside something like a Tiger Soldier Spitfire is a really good team-up, and cheaper than an actual Tiger Soldier medic by far. For those who do not have AD medics at all but want to use AD, this is a really good second unit to do that with.

And alongside Yuan-Yuans with their ridiculous PH value, he'd be really amazing.

Also, I betcha we see a mission where this guy's skills shine. He'd be good in Supplies, that's for sure.

[Edit for clarity: Paramedics have +3 to open the crates in Supplies, and dude is a specialist.]

But that monoweapon does seem like bloat. Maybe they needed to raise the price, because like @Narkano said the Krakot was a bit too cheap overall.

Well... some folks seem to think that Monofilament is good for destroying scenery... though it this folk seems to have misremembered Supplies.  I remembered that as the "blow up crates" mission.  Further inspection seems to show that that mission has fallen into the ol' Orb of Annihilation.

people also havent mentioned it here so Im not sure the relevance.

Overall my thoughts on the Jager are its a bitching profile, the more I think of ways to use it the more I like it, it wont be in every list but any vanilla list where I consider AD the Jager will be a strong contender for the spot

Hence the mea culpa.

Cube Jäger looks like hot trash to me, but enjoy if you find it enjoyable.

a small change needed maybe. even not superb cc17-18 with ikohl, eliminating bts,arm and shock immunity could do the trick.

Somebody said trashjager??

he don't have any place in nomads at all. He is bad copy paste of E-mitter Tomcat. Who has better BS, PH, light flamethrower, mines and Climbing + for 20 pts. And he is regular.

vanila Ariadna? They have plenty AD stuff.  They have Para commandos and airborne rangers (ranger is a much better specialist btw)

Toha - maybe. But that 0.5 SWC shuts the door there as well.

CA they don't need that. And 0.5 SWC tax kills that option as well.  I even consider taking Rasyat (for his really unique loadouts) in the lists rather then this guy.

Aleph... they have Garuda (that's better at fighting) and a stealth AD trooper already. And Ekdromoi have DA CCW that puts him ahead this guy.

Yu Jing. Maybe , but again that 0.5 SWC tax (especially in Yu Jing).

PanO. Maybe under Joan..... but again 0.5SWC........... in factions that shoots most of the time........

Haqqislam just laughs. 

mercs always have some unique features or niche , but that guy doesn't .

it a good thing that CB shifted to some specialist mercs, but that try was bad.

i think proper name for him is Cubehrener rather than Cube Jager (rude mighty Russian language involved)

 

 

a niche

The Jagger has a 44% chwnc and of killing a TAG on Normal rolls. That's really quite good.
