It could work if they were cheep and/or 30 meters tall, but then begs the question: why not use the money to make a small army of 30 meter jaegers? You could take a lot of Kaiju out that way, especially if they were shooting it while a larger jaeger like Gypsy had the kaiju preoccupied in melee.
Well for one thing, I mentioned they don't have drift technology because of the cost. I would imagine that they would be made from recycled dead Jaeger in Oblivion Bay, or just made cheaply from scratch as they aren't built for combat, just service. Furthermore, it doesn't really matter, you just have to accept it, same with actual Jaeger a they're impossible scientifically and financially. It's really a mute point.
I also had the idea that in my version of Pacific Rim, North Korea no longer exists. They didn't ally with the PPDC, and decided to build their own half-hazard Jaeger, and when a Kaiju attacked, the Jaeger had a meltdown, exploded, and irradiated the whole country.
