T-300 (Series 300 / Fast Walker)
Production date: Prior to 2016.
Also known as simply the series 300, the T-300 was actually not humanoid, but it was bipedal and possessed very rudimentary AI, and so arguably fits into the category of a humanoid hunter killer (Terminator). It was a walking weapons platform on two legs that could balance itself on one leg to perform labor or mechanical tasks. Nicknamed the "Raptor" by the resistance. Standing 2.5 meters tall, it resembled a very angry giant chicken with a plasma gun in its mouth. About as intelligent as a dog, and with a similar feral and rabid personality. These were highly durable and motivated soldiers. Their function was primarily to serve as sentries and to hunt and eliminate humans.
The T-300 was conspicous, but it was also cunning and could ambush resistance forces by hiding in rubble. However, it had no real camouflage.
Sky-net did not yet have the superiority in numbers to secure the resources it needed to test advanced terminator prototypes at the time of the introduction of this unit. As such, the T-300's CPU, though it did incorporate elements of cyberdyne artificial intelligence, was only about as sophisticated as the mind of a dog; obedient and able to follow simple instructions. T-300s were capable of hunting in packs (similar to wolves) and of cooperating with each other for common goals.
DURABILITY, SPEED, STRENGTH, MANEUVERABILITY
The T-300 was incredibly fast, maneuverable, and resistant to conventional artillery. Later high powered plasma phase weapons did pose a threat to it, and its great size limited its ability to follow humans. Its appendages were enormously strong and it could kill a human with a glancing blow, or slice a human in half with a swipe of a talon. It was about 2.5 meters tall.
The T-300 was armed with an internal mounted and stabilized Westinghouse M25A1 Phased Plama Rifle, which was linked directly to the T-300's internal power supply (a miniature reactor) thus allowing indefinate firing potential. The weapon was in locked position and the T-300 had to face directly at its target to shoot at it. The T-300 was capable of firing its weapon accurately while running at full speed.
Despite being limited in its uses, it was a very effective guard dog. Yet, in later years its armor did not prove to be not particularly resistant to plasma phase weapons and the T-300 was relatively dumb and could be trapped and baited into dangerous situations easily. Its aggression was also impractical in many ways as the T-300 tended to prefer tearing humans apart over blasting them which is more effective and exposes the unit to less jeopardy.
