IN DARK HORSE UNIVERSE
THE T-800’S ENDOSKELETON IS AN ADVANCED MICROPROCESSOR
T-800 is one of the most iconic killing machines in fandom. Its name is spoken in fear and trembling. And this with good cause. For all its lethality, its strength, and its intelligence, the T-800 possesses a remarkable physical component: the endoskeleton.
The silvery metal endoskeleton of the T-800 is a microprocessor controlled triple-armored hyper-alloy combat chassis and is constructed with frictionless bearings in its joints, and a servo-actuated control system. Its limbs are controlled by axial drive motors and clavicular trailing links, allowing the T-800s to maneuver faster than the T-600 Terminators, as bursts of speed of up to 22 mph no longer threatened the joint assemblies. The T-800 was also 20% lighter and 40% stronger than the T-600. The armored frame is capable of withstanding most contemporary weapons with small caliber and sometimes even withstanding a direct hit from grenade launchers.– T-800, Terminator Wiki
The T-800 possesses a HUD capacity that enables it to make real-time assessment of environmental conditions, human emotional states and possible threats.
The T-800’s HUD featuring tracking marker, almost exactly the same with the exclusion of the many dots that would highlight a target. The T-800 is capable of running internal systems checks; calculating the distance of objects relative to itself; targeting with a precision head-up display; making detailed kinetic studies of trajectories; sampling and analyzing the atmosphere, weather patterns, wind velocity, and nicotine levels of tobacco smoke; analyzing human emotional states (in order to assess possible hostility); analyzing body language and direction of muscle contraction; calculating the force of gravity; analyzing texture and temperature of materials; and sensing radar scans.– T-800, Terminator Wiki
What makes the T-800’s endoskeleton so special is its ability to enable the T-800 to be efficient, adaptive and combat-proficient. Let’s look at some of the feats that characterize the T-800’s endoskeleton.
