I can't see the Jet Alone overpowering Unit 01 in berserk, I don't think it's more powerful than that.

I think that Gendo (and SEELE) simply didn't need an angel destroyed incapable of triggering an Impact.

Ritsuko discusses the repair budget after Operation Yashima, and Gendo has a conversation with a man about budgets being voted on and approved for various Evas around the world. These details about budget also are paired with the episode that first explores Nerv's shadier side.

Overall, the connection between budget, Nerv's shadiness, and the JA sabotage seems to be deliberate. I imagine Nerv eliminating financial competition to secure a budget for itself is not far off the mark.


Wait, really?
Damn, I really need to rewatch NGE... how could I forget that :facepalm:

Effectively unlimited endurance is a valuable thing, if combined with a way to neutralize AT fields. (Replica Lances, perhaps?) It also seems likely, at least to me, that JA was considerably cheaper than an Eva to build and operate, didn't depend on the ugliness of child pilots, and quite possibly could be mass-produced in a cost-effective way.

JA is slow and ugly, but thirty of them with anti-AT-Field weapons against something like Ramiel seems like an effective weapons systems.

Certainly true, but I dont know about the "slow" part. Unit 01 is pretty quick on foot and seemed to have trouble catching up to it

JHCI's confidence in cracking the AT field might be unfounded. Gendo was on the phone earlier in the episode talking to someone. It appears that Nerv provided falsified information to a Freedom of Information request. It is possible that JHCI knows the AT field only by name. Considering the faux lances are necessary for SEELE to initialize the third impact, it is hard to see SEELE allowing it to proliferate.

Wasn't this mech named after the character Jet Jaguar from the Godzilla series?

I guess. But on the other hand, there is dedicated Anti-AT-field-ammo (definitely in the rebuilds, not sure about NGE, but I think something like that was mentioned at some point), so if it works for bullets (actually no, shells is the better term given their caliber) it might as well work for other things
