All 25 TERMINATOR Models Explained

All 25 TERMINATOR Models Explained
hello and welcome back to another episode of generation films my name is american ben and i am totally not a robot sent here to kill you totally not a robot but you know what are robots

terminator

s and by now with all the crappy movies that have brought down a once glorious franchise there are a whole lot of

terminator

models

and it gets kind of confusing so today we are going to go through all of the

models

and break down each one for you to clear everything up now the way we're going to organize this video in terms of models and it was hard to decide because the terminator continuity is a cluster truck is by classification and then by numerical order so i can show off my ability to count we start with the class known as the non-humanoid hunter killers obviously not what everyone thinks of when they think of the terminator the usual image that pops into people's heads is arnold's clean-faced and well-trained body but there are non-humanoid terminators as well in the terminator 3 rise of the machine's alternate timeline created by the destruction of cyberdyne cyber research systems built the t1 a fully autonomous ground assault vehicle the t1 was designed to clear battlefields of enemy troops using its powerful offensive weaponry the bot was mounted on a rotatable platform that gave its laser beam targeting system a wide field of attack the t1 used its auditory heat and motion sensors to identify targets and eliminate them however the primitive t1 was a flawed machine if a target simply kept silent and covered its heat signature by standing next to another hot object the t1 could not detect it next the t4 tank a model in skynet's line of hk or hunter killer tanks was a somewhat humanoid somewhat tanky tank and we don't have a picture of it because it only appears in a terminator novel who writes books without pictures but anyway the t4 stood several stories tall and featured twin barrel directional plasma cannons for battlefield destruction the tank wasn't really a formidable opponent on the battlefield and can be destroyed rather easily by small explosives the t7t tetrapod nicknamed spider by the resistance was a hunter killer bot used by skynet to defend important points of interest its arms featured twin machine guns and four legs gave it efficient mobility the t-70 was heavily armored but it could be deactivated temporarily quite easily by shooting the red eye on its front or it could be stopped completely by shooting the battery pack on its backside next we have the moto terminator yes skynet produced automated motorcycles programmed to hunt down humans a truly insidious strategy as humans have a natural instinct to trust motorcycles even more so than dogs and that's a scientific fact back to the bikes though they could travel at super fast speeds and had optic sensors and plasma emitters on their sides the sensors could calculate the road ahead and any obstacles or debris in it and instantly come up with the best path to take thus they had far superior agility to human-controlled vehicles next the t1 million also known as the team egg was a giant spider leg robot that was designed to defend skynet's central core the bots made of memetic polyalloy would metamorphosize out of a solid part of the core into its spider form and from there could form all sorts of sharp weapons from its legs next we have the humanoid hunter killer class androids developed to be similar to the human endoskeleton if not to completely mimic it first the t70 which existed in the timeline created by the assassination of john connor was built by cyberdyne systems in order to impress investors it's either capitalism or socialism people with one you get super cool tvs and also killer robots and with the other no killer robots but also no food so are you pro killer robot or do you hate america anyway the t70 the first true humanoid terminator was built to guard skynet facilities they weren't however often in combat because by the time they were ready to be put into mass production their technology was already outdated that said they were designed to be able to serve as basic foot soldiers they were equipped with a high velocity gatling gun for such endeavors however their large size basic cpu and lack of skin meant that the t70 was easy to locate and hit next the t400 was another early humanoid terminator created by skynet the t400 was invented as a result of skynet's desire to create a robot that could mimic general human size shape range of motion and mobility at the time of its creation in 2018 the t400 was considered a powerful robot boasting the capability to lift one thousand pounds the bot also was the first hunter killer to use true though somewhat simple artificial intelligence however relative to later models the t400 was quite primitive as it was made from cheap and weak materials that could be produced rapidly the t400 also had a lot of its wiring exposed a flaw which enemies off took advantage of by aiming for those points the t400 also had a big red optical sensor that basically was an easy target for resistance snipers on the battlefield the t500 as opposed to the t400 featured an armored battle chassis which made it much more durable than its predecessor it also was equipped with better weapons which were synced to an acquisition ai system making the t500 a capable soldier for skynet the t-infinity temporal terminator was a robot created by skynet to keep the timelines in balance if a timeline got out of whack a t infinity would be sent to correct it the bot used its onboard time displacement equipment to relocate itself in time and also to translocate shots from enemy weapons fire jfk's death

explained

finally we get to the infiltrator class terminators humanoid hunter killers built to look like humans and to hunt them down and kill them these are the terminators that we have come to know and love first the t600 was a terminator that skynet started mass producing in 2016 to serve as infiltrators these bots had basic combat endoskeletons made of titanium alloy and often covered in synthetic latex unfortunately their rubber skin made them easy to discover by enemies nonetheless the t600 marked skynet's transition to extremely human-like terminators in addition to looking more humanoid than the t500 the t600 was also a lighter weight than its predecessor and had an upgraded cpu the robot stood six feet tall and weighed 800 pounds and could lift objects five times its weight the t600 could also punch through concrete and metal and could run by pedal of course at speeds of up to 46 miles per hour oh and if you need any of those units converted to the metric system whether kilograms or kilometers per hour please just click right up in the top right corner right where you see the x in the top right corner of your browser just hit that x and you should get an instant automatic conversion the t700 is mostly known as the bridge robot between the t600 and the t800 the t700 was armed with the g11 caseless round submachine guns and could continue to function even after suffering severe damage however the bot's targeting systems could be fairly easily disabled by shooting the back of its neck and without such function the t700 would be rendered mostly ineffective the t800 is of course maybe the most famous terminator as model 101 of the series is the bot that was featured in the original terminator film the t800 was the first model to use living tissue for skin and thus had a completely human appearance and was not distinguishable as a bot though wearing sunglasses at night and taking the form of a giant austrian bodybuilder is maybe not the most inconspicuous way to go but still the t800 was the first terminator to truly be a successful infiltrator unit for skynet the t800 featured a neural net processor cpu also known as a learning computer this cpu was the most powerful that cyberdyne had built to date and contained a huge database of files on everything from human anatomy to combat techniques to medical training thus the t800 was a super soldier with expertise in every area necessary to be an efficient killer the bot had a triple armored hyper alloy combat chassis and could withstand most small arms fire additionally the t800s limbs were built to maneuver much faster than its predecessors and at top speed would not suffer the same wear and tear on its joint assemblies this all said the t-800 had a share of weaknesses its endoskeleton was still vulnerable to machine gun and sniper rifle rounds plasma weaponry explosives and electric attacks of course because it was made of solid material its greatest enemy was the hydraulic press next the t850 another 800 series terminator had a similar hyper alloy chassis as the t800 but was a bit stronger and faster than its predecessor the 850 skin was also more regenerative and its endoskeleton was more resistant to plasma weaponry the 850 was also programmed to be knowledgeable about human psychology and behavior and could itself lie perhaps the most valuable human power of all next the triple eight the third 800 series terminator was even stronger and faster than the 850. the triple eight was capable of running faster than some cars the bot also featured armor plating on its back for greater durability and blades in its thighs for well what else does one do with thy blades on to the 900 series now the t900 was built by skynet as an anti-terminator in reaction to the resistance reprogramming its other units these bots were powered by plasma reactors and featured different plasma weapons depending on type of t900 the t900 was a flawed robot in that they were programmed in a way that allowed skynet to have more secure control over them but this also limited their ability to learn they were thus less efficient bots than even the t850s next the t950 was a bridge model between the 900 and tx it was an advanced version of the 900 that featured some new weapons and could fold backward to shoot targets behind it in the novels there was also an i-950 terminator model unlike the t-series terminators eyes were bred by skynet instead of manufactured the idea here was that robots bred to act like humans would be able to better mimic humans than robots built in a factory the models would start out as genetically engineered babies with organic makeups and neural net processors the same skynet connected cpu introduced with the t800 model the babies would then grow into terminator adults that were basically completely human in behavior the i-950s were weak in that their organic bodies were just as vulnerable to damage as real humans but because they did have some cybernetic components as well even if their bodies died they could still be restarted after the fact though for you want to be terminators out there please don't try this at home next the t-1000 is another famous terminator most well known for its appearance in judgment day produced by skynet in 2029 the t-1000 was completely made up of a liquid metal known as memetic polyalloy and could thus reform into any shape of similar size that it touched this meant that the bot was extremely hard to track and could blend in anywhere or even after being identified once of course it could also use its liquid metal composition to form its limbs into sharp weapons and regenerate damaged parts the t-1000 also had a liquid molecular brain that endowed it with advanced reasoning capabilities emotions and self-awareness the negative side of this obviously is that they were a threat to go rogue on skynet or disobey orders thus skynet never mass-produced them the t-1001 was a 1000 series terminator introduced in the form of catherine weaver and the sarah connor chronicles catherine was slightly more advanced but similar to the t-1000 though she seemed to have more trouble mimicking human emotions the t-1002 was a bot designed by skynet for heavy combat the t-1002 had greater control over its structure than the 1000 model and could form stabbing weapons all over its body the txa only appearing in novels was the final 1000 series terminator another slightly more advanced version of the t-1000 the txa could split itself into several parts in order to camouflage in other words it could mimic an entire group of humans rather than just one the txa could also implant elements of itself inside other humans and thus gain some control over that person next the tx built in an alternate timeline created by the first attempted assassination of john connor was the terminator model that succeeded the t-1000 series the tx like the t-1000 series models had a liquid metal makeup but combined this composition with an advanced endoskeleton based on the one from the t900 series the tx was stronger faster and smarter than all previous models the bot housed various advanced weaponry most notably a plasma cannon the tx could also move its joints in ways that humans and its predecessor models couldn't making it the most agile terminator to date the ts-300 was a stealth infiltrator designed by mir or mir the russian version of skynet the ts-300 was made of a ceramic endoskeleton that mimicked human weight and structure and had a complete human organ system and human pheromones that could pass animal detection the bots also had em sensor masking units which allowed them to override electronic detection systems its best technology though was its stealth infiltrator personality transfer software which could be used to map captured humans and create copies of them the t3000 was another advanced terminator model built by skynet in 2029 the t3000s were actually former humans who were transformed into terminators through exposure to machine phase matter which would infect a target and then rewrite its genetic code that said the only model of this series to survive the infection phase was john connor who was infected by the machine phase matter and terminator genesis furthermore this machine phase matter that made up the t3 thousands was held together by a magnetic field that could be formed into different stabbing weapons akin to that of the liquid metal terminators and could be used to shapeshift and regenerate as well however the t3000 could absorb damage better than a t-1000 could and was able to dispel itself into mist momentarily allowing it to phase during combat or even through solid objects the 3000's greatest weakness was high yield magnetic sources such as mri machines finally the t5000 was yet another terminator model created by skynet in 2029 the t5000 also known in terminator genesis as alex was the physical embodiment of skynet not a lot is known about the t5000 given that we've only seen it once but we do know that it is capable of transforming humans into t3000 terminators well that is the video i hope
