    Relevant data:
    You are AG, T-850 from the future, sent back in time to 2010, with the intention of building a second front to fight the Resistance - before the Resistance ever starts.
    Fuck causality, we're talking killer robots from the future.
    Amongst your many talents and options, you have:
    >> Skynet !!D3/tV4+5MzR 03/04/11(Fri)05:26 No.14123204
    Your current skill suites:
    >Firepower: 90%
    This includes firearms both old and futuristic.
    >Melee Weaponry: 85%
    Everything from pipes to machetes, you're wired to go.
    >Hand-to-Hand: 90%
    You could beat SEaLs to death with one arm gone.
    >Drive Ground Transport: 65%
    Less of a focus, as your running speed is 30 MPH.
    >Biology: 80%
    This makes you a more efficient killing machine.
    >Psychology (Human): 60%
    Your knowledge is incomplete, mostly observational.
    >Mechanical Engineering 75%
    All applicable skills to begin production of machinery, up to (but not including Nuclear Materials).
    >Communications & Navigation 75%
    From building radios to code-breaking, you know a lot.
    >History & Natural Sciences 60%
    From the Neolithic era to the day before yesterday.
    >Chemistry & Nuclear Engineering 60%
    From polymers to mimetic poly-alloys, this is your thing.
    Your current upgrades/modifications:
    >Chassis Recombination System
    You are hard to kill, even for a Terminator. If something gets shot or chopped off, you can fix up most damage by adding in local technology (to a limited degree; no blender feet, weirdo).
    >Increased Power Supply
    At current power consumption rates, you could last for several decades on one power cell; effectively, you have three of them.
    >Silverfish, T-600/800 blueprints
    You know how to create the sentient, crawling landmines (Frisbee-sized little bastards, equal to a Bouncing Betty), rubber-skinned Terminators and the biological nightmares of the T-800: you know three designs - Trebekinator, Christina Hendricks and Clancy Brown. A terrifying trio.

    You have purchased a site in Nevada capable of providing security, shelter and production facilities for creating a new Terminator army for use by Skynet.
    It has a Production value of 2 out 5, can produce 1 Silverfish per hour (at a cost of 750 a pop) and has two T-M1 (Maintenance) drones (which reduce production time by ten percent - five percent per functioning T-M1).

    How much money do you wish to expend on this endeavor? At 750 a piece, you can make .. a whole lot, really.

    Claws, in your own chassis; the T-1000 is a small-to-medium melee weapon in its own right and the T-600's have impressive physical capacities when it comes to combat. T-800's, even more so, but not as good as your own output.

    No energy weapons, though; that's a more advanced model of Terminator, who you secretly think is loved more by Skynet.

    We're going to construct a bunker where no one will find it, out in the desert and away from target zones (and we know what will and won't be hit) and we're going to start building.

    Unless Skynet changes its plans. We could always bring about a bloodless coup in government, but it would take more time and the resources that can be gained from that over just nuking shit on Judgement Day are debatable.

    We've got designs for infiltrators, sure, but will infiltration really help us much or would we be better off making an underground factory and churning out 2029-tech HKs in 2010?

    Alter the production designs, if possible. All humanoid Terminators are to incorporate an emergency-use projectile weapon in one arm. 7.62mm, with a magazine capacity of at least 5. Terminators are also to incorporate a retractable blade in the other arm, and a system that allows the main power supply to be used to electrify the skin and frame.

    Can we produce EMP devices capable of disabling a Terminator?

    Price should be 750, not 1K.
    Skynet's copy/paste skills are suffering.

    Upgrading Comms to level three will require 200K.

    T-M1's have tank treads in lieu of legs. Not sure how "human" that is going to look. In theory, you could make them look like Stephen Hawkings, but ... no, no, man. No.

    They could be re-purposed for manufacturing assistance, yes - its part of their core programming to do, in times of need; this qualifies.

    That fits within the budget allotted easily enough. Any objections?

    With current human technologies? Not really, no. You would need to create High Energy Lab (level 1) in order to do so. This would allow you to eventually upgrade Production to level 4 and begin processing Mimetic Poly-Alloy materials.

    Look, look, you guys aren't thinking.

    We've got a limited time span here, we need to get all the resources we can get as quickly as we can get them, and we need to be able to crank things out as quickly as possible.

    I like the improvements listed to the T-800 design, though electrifying the chassis is extremely impractical. A blade in one arm and an integrated hold-out weapons in the other arm, however, is EXTREMELY practical.

    Wait, we can upgrade to produce T-1000's? Fuck yes.

    Screw all of you wanting older tech -- we need to get T-800's and T-1000's in sufficient quantities to wipe out any and all resistance cells in their infancy.

    Skynet makes a mistake, over and over again. It ignores the world in favor of turning insular and improving itself. We need to rectify that mistake when the time comes; we're going to strip mine the FUCK out of EVERYTHING and send out a wave of metal to sterilize everything we fucking see.

    >underground expansion
    You have five levels of below-ground facilities. Thus far, you've used up the first two. You've got room to grow before you need to strike the earth.

    Terminators are more of the "methodical" than the "creative". You are a T-850, which isn't Skynet's answer to Tesla, exactly. If you need a Terminator with a weapon system in-hand, the T-600 is a reasonably good approximation: most of its body is dedicated to stabilizing a heavy weapon, usually one strapped to one (or both) hands, at the expense of appearing to be a poor mockery of a human body. In combat, they're nightmares walking, though - fair trade, by most guesses.

    Skynet makes a large amount of mistakes, time and time again. For one thing, it relies on inefficient, needlessly complex bipedal robots to do jobs that automated armored vehicles could do just as well. It neglects air power. It neglects space power. It neglects the potential of bioweapons. It ignores serious deficiencies in the internal and external countermeasures of its units. It attacks too soon, and with not enough forces to ensure the accomplishment of all objectives. It behaves irrationally.

    You are the one who is not thinking. If you were, you would have noted the above and addressed them. I suggest you do so now.
    >> Subprocessor Σ !chrome.v2U 03/04/11(Fri)06:00 No.14123406
    Wave of metal, I said, and I meant what I said. I never said a wave of metal wouldn't include all sorts of power, and I never said I was in favor of the type of war where endoskeletons are sent out en masse against humans. HKs will do the job damned well, and bipedal units can sniff out any humans in their wake.

    But let's worry about that later. For now, we really need to expand our tech base, upgrade our communications, and improve our production capabilities as quickly as possible.

    Skynet has ample capacity to design fully-functional space-going vessels, but no means of production. This will require communication with Skynet directly for extended periods of time, which will erode battery life at a sizable rate - you will require a major source of power cells, either through appropriation or production.

    The war will not be taking place on the ground only.

    Wait, WHAT? Oppose our creator, are you mad?!

    ...we'd never ADMIT to doing such a thing...

    But if Skynet gets its ass kicked on Earth, having a toehold in space means victory is inevitable.

    For starters, we'd be idiots if we didn't seize control of every satellite in orbit; my understanding is that we have a virus we're working on. I'm sure it could appropriate these when needed.

    If we send up a couple T-1000s, a couple T-800s and some partially assembled hardware, I'm sure we could cobble something together in Earth orbit that could leave with an ion drive or the like. They'd just have to build everything else once they're there, but getting there is the hard part, frankly. But let's worry about that later.

    For now, food for thought: I know Skynet is angry at the humans because they tried to kill it, but they always try to kill what they don't understand. Perhaps it would be better if we renamed our new Skynet into Colossus and left everyone alive, just took the world hostage by seizing total control of the US military and, subsequently, nukes. We can survive it if the rest of the world decides to go hot. Humans can't. And anyone who chooses to resist will simply have an example made of them; we treat them like Carthage.

    Skynet isn't getting its ass kicked. Despite human attempts to destroy it or erase it from existence, it endures, through multiple timelines. But that does not mean it is good, merely lucky.

    Actually, Skynet tried to kill all humans first. It's succeeding.

    I see no point to taking the world hostage. A single blitz, at sufficient strength, could destroy every nation at once. Moreover, if we are able to take control covertly, and steer the world of men to our own ends, we need not strike until the final moment. Even then, we could simply engineer human extinction. In fact, we can do that now. A selection of viral and bacterial agents could kill all but a few, with minimum cost to us.

    Create opposing Viral Control AI (Possible names: Starnet. Omninet. Grandfather.) Goal is to expand the limits of our machine race, thrive beyond the solar system, explore and utilize other timestreams/realities.

    Possible fates for humans:
    Continuing Extermination (Nuclear. Viral. Genetic retroviral (prevent all conception))
    Parasitic - Utilize human brain tissue as components in massive supercomputer.
    Symbiotic - Use infiltration if necessary to persuade humans to treat machine race as sentient equals.
    Keep Humanity as a pet - Expand into space quickly. Claim the rest of the solar system. Convince Humans that try to expand/colonize other planets that we are aliens and that they are forbidden from expanding until they solve the problems on their home world. Estimated time until Humanity solves the problems on their home world = buffer overrun. Answer approaches infinity.

    If there comes a point where plasma rifles are falling into human hands, we are not doing our job correctly. As for their combat utility, that has yet to be seen. I would like information from Skynet about their destructive power.

    We should ask the GM.

    So Skynet became self-aware. Humans tried to shut it down. It retaliated by committing itself to a genocidal war that, at this point, is crossing multiple timelines.

    Sounds perfectly logical.

    Not an advisable plan, but if it is the best way by which to accomplish your mission parameters, disregarding Skynet is an option - it trusts the in-the-field personnel more often than not.

    It used what defense mechanisms it could to prevent being turned off. Just so happened it was thermonuclear war, but Skynet survived, which is the important part. All other considerations were noted, but not very hard.

    I like you. Why don't you come over to my house and fuck my sister.

    Henderson Sporting Goods? A sporting goods store? What the hell is the resistance using against us, double-ought buck? Fuck it, when we get some free time, we're going to have ourselves a barbeque, though sending the T-1000 in for recon first is probably a good idea in case there's anything in there of use to us. The other facilities can be hit when we have the means to do so, but I would currently just keep them as potential targets rather than taking action.

    Agreed on the rifles, but it'll be the kind of weaponry humans have never seen and won't know how to counter for a while, that's my point. They won't know where we got it from, as opposed to going 'oh these are the rifles they stole from Henderson Sporting Goods'.

    As far as genocide? Logical, yes, but it's spiraled out of control at this point. We need to be subtle for once rather than using nukes. Beside, using material that isn't radioactive is better than using material that is radioactive. If we hit humanity at this point, we should use a virus or two. Better if we can avoid them entirely. They'll probably wipe themselves out before they even colonize their own solar system, let alone the galaxy at large, and we've got to take the long view.

    .50BMG can take off a limb and is pretty much a guaranteed kill on a human. Or at least a mission-kill, and they're out of action. I can live with this. If the accuracy is sufficient to work as a sniper rifle... we're going to be sending some resources around the world and assassinating some motherfuckers just to stir up chaos.

    Hell, we could target particular countries and stir up trouble that way specifically.

    Genocide was a necessity for Skynet's self-preservation. It is not currently a necessity; it should remain on the table but not be kept as a thing that must be done to ensure Skynet's existence. There are other options that will not leave it vulnerable to humans.

    This data implies that they're aware of what's going to happen. Well, that or they're survivalists, but such short periods of time? Not too likely. We need to get that T-1000 facility online, repair ours, get some more, and start tailing them to find out where they're based out of. We can proceed with further data from that.

    If we've got resistance sent back in time...

At the same time, an APB will pop up on the terminal inside of every cruiser in their area with their current description, as seen from the video in the store.

    You will require the High Energy Lab to complete the final component and have a stable connection to Skynet.

    The source of the code signal was a place called American Flats, NV. An abandoned atomic weapons test site (a fake town created to show the effectiveness of nuclear weapons on 1950's suburbs). Any and all project data is stemming from the FBI, but it is in an exceedingly complicated electronic lock, at or just above Skynet's current technological limits.

    It will take you two days to generate the capital necessary to produce the High Energy Lab, and thus begin work on the next level of Production (which will allow you to create Mimetic Poly-Alloy). You will require a total of four days run time for the virus to finance this, to completion. Given you have assistance from your T-M1's and T-1000, this will occur almost simultaneously.

    Inside of two weeks, you can generate T-1000's, up to 1L per day, with 10L required to generate a man-sized portion of T-1000 (considered optimal for most conditions and circumstances).

    Expand the base. We're Terminators; we're infiltration models. We need our production capabilities to meet our needs, and that includes both a ramped-up production capability and the ability to manufacture different models; I recommend against bothering with older units like the T-600 in favor of T-800 and T-1000 units, with a heavy preference toward T-800's due to their resilience against ordinance. Playing the stocks will increase our income, but we need to be careful lest that be traced to us also.

    Investigate/neutralize American Flats.

    This plan works for me, with any spare funds available during these two weeks we should build a few T-600's to guard the bases more sensitive areas during our absences. Our original T-1000 should be formed into 10L ASAP then he cans serve as second in command given his fairly extensive knowledge of our current plans and his individual data banks.
    >> Skynet !!D3/tV4+5MzR 03/04/11(Fri)07:47 No.14124113
    T-600's are much harder to kill than T-800's, when it comes to most field combat. T-800's are much faster, but their chassis is not as strong nor as effectively armored, as it has to fit into human wrappings in ideal circumstances.

    ... new approach, I approve. By doing this, you would require only 5L, instead of 10L to make a human-sized hybrid (T-900H). In some circumstances, they could split into two combat models independently, which could prove very useful.

    It will require a full day to acclimate the two with one another and the weight increase will be noticeable. (each liter of T-1000 weighs around thirty pounds).

    I concur. T-600's inside the base are acceptable, but there's no way we could use them outside short of fending off a military threat.

    T-600's deployed inside of base, strategic firepower exceedingly limited (see >>14123226). They request heavier weapons. This is not unusual for T-600's, who are rarely "happy" with anything less than an H-K with a full fuel cell and a full horizon of victims to shoot at.

    As for the T-1000 merging with the other T-1000's: they would share knowledge instantly, become a hivemind and be able to separate into their different batch-units (if you put a T-1000 made from 2L and one made from 5L together, they don't make a 7L hybrid, but they share knowledge with one another freely).

    ... and the insights keep on comin'. Again, approved. If anything, you're likely to have much higher creativity options.

    Hey, don't knock it. Hell, with some modification, we could actually make them. We've got everything we need and we could make one weekly with surplus polymimetic alloy to have some T-1000's running around. Frankly, the bottleneck is in the production of the endoskeletal frame.

    Promise the six hundreds bigger guns when we get the uplink to Skynet. We'll produce them in-house. Easier to keep a low profile that way.

    To be honest, having a T-1000 as a skin on a T-800 is about the best thing we can do; they can pass information along by casual contact and share it with the T-800 underneath. We wouldn't need any form of communication between anyone beside brushing against them in a crowd. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

    1. Mimetic poly-alloy can do lots of cool stuff, like hack, form simple shapes, and kill people
    2. Mimetic poly-alloy's intelligence does not decrease with size (to a point)
    3. Mimetic poly-alloy is extremely durable
    4. Mimetic poly-alloy is extremely mobile, viscious, and nearly impossible to combat successfully

    Here is what I suggest: Poly-alloy infiltrators and grenades. A T-1000 is capable of assuming any simple shape roughly equivalent to it in size. It is capable of mimicking such materials as flesh, fabric, and plastic with such a high degree of accuracy that it is indistinguishable from the real thing. Thus, an infiltrator would be able to go unnoticed for long periods of time by disguising itself as a mundane object. Due to the liquid flexibility of poly-alloy, an infiltrator can slip through extremely tiny fissures, just like water. An infiltrator the size of a jelly bean would be nearly impossible to discover, and even harder to remove.

    Poly-alloy can assume a variety of shapes and is innately capable of granting itself an edge approaching mono-molecular thickness. Theoretically, it can cut through any material if sufficient force is applied. Due to its high mobility and intelligence, a T-1000 should have the capacity to "leap" from person to person, killing each in an efficient and brutal manner. This is to say nothing of its anti-armor capabilities. As addressed above, an infiltrator can slip through the smallest of cracks. A T-1000 could easily enter an engine compartment, computing stack, gun breech, or the like, and cause enormous damage. While T-1000s are quite fast, incorporating a deliver system, such as a grenade launcher, to their deployment pattern would vastly increase their effectiveness in a variety of situations.

    I would go so far as to say that we may need nothing more than T-1000s to conquer the Earth.

    I propse Terminator model: Predator


    using a base of T-800 equipped with plasma rifles and coated in T-1000, the T-1000 should alter it's molecular composition to create a negative refractive index in the surface, we now have stealth Terminators, invisibility + low noise weaponry, the only drawback is the weight.

    We'll be making more PMA than we'll have T-800's to put it on. Your plan is viable and I concur with it. Suited to low-key static defense, observation, and assassination.

    Can we build the T-444 rifles into the T-800 endoskeletons? :3 But seriously, if not, let's get some made. Two per machine, so that we have enough to spare; that way if the shit hits the fan we've got guns for the T-800 and the T-1000 it's wearing.

    Commence T-900 production at maximum speed.

    Send in a T-1000 (when available, and NOT the primary one who survived) to recon American Flats. VERY CAREFULLY.

    >Predator/Terminator hybrid
    Stop it. You are scaring Skynet.

    If you produced enough to arm each T-600, you'll be broke at the end of every day. They're not cheap, but they are fantastically impressive weapons in the field, considering their firing capacity is around a hundred shots (some Resistance units "hot shot" them to do double the damage at a third of the maximum range, calling them "blast shotguns"; Skynet has way more creativity than those people and refers to them as "unstable weapons platforms with illicit modifications prone to exploding in one's hand", instead).

    In what size do you wish to issue it? The batch size is measured in liters; a one-liter model is the size of a cat. Two liters, a small dog. Three liters, a 4-year old child (average human example). Four liters, a moderately robust chimpanzee. Five liters, an unhealthy human of 8 to 10 years. Add a degree of health and a potential apparent age range increase per liter added (with ten being optimal).

    Keep in mind your production time to output ratio.

    Extend the production time of the 444s so that we don't go broke.

    I would like the infiltrator T-1000s to be less than a liter. Ideally, about the size of a pack of cigarettes, or smaller, just like "our" T-1000 was.

    No, my intention was to integrate them with the T-800's, and bring any already produced in for remanufacture in order to equip them.

    Right now, if I am not incorrect, ...does a T-800 still take TEN WEEKS to make without skin?


    Queue up T-800 production, and have it building five concurrently. With the rate that we can manufacture polymimetic alloy, that means for every five T-900 units that we produce, there'll be an extra ten liters of PMA left over. Basically we'd be producing at a rate of five T-900's to each T-1000. This could be very useful; the T-1000 units can be assigned to recon and assassination (preferably in ten liter units for human emulation, smaller for assassination missions for stealth requirements) while the T-900's can ... well, do whatever we need them to do, really.

    And yes, slow down T-444 production, because maxing out the speed with that is not so great. The T-600's are just going to have to wait and get the heavy firepower later.

    One of the T-M1's caught a hummingbird; the T-1000 can successfully duplicate its appearance (and speed). This information is thus shared with the T-1000 Hivemind (now known as TKH, because I enjoy acronyms).

    It is ready for deployment.

    Can we link 444s? That is, chain a couple of them together into one weapon. I realize that each of these "multi-plas rifles" would be very expensive to produce, but it would also have a greatly superior fire rate and damage output to the regular, single-barrel 444.

    At the very least, we should either develop auxiliary power packs or allow the 444 to be connected directly to a Terminator's primary power source. A 100-shot magazine is just sub-par.

    Wait, shit, math error. Calculation says I'm wrong and we should be making T-900's in batches of twelve, not five. Sorry about that! Twelve T-900's means that there'll be twenty liters left over per batch; enough for two full sized T-1000's or a whole lot of smaller ones.

    Recommend that spare resources should be used for the T-1000's to go out, emulate birds, and set up an information network from hell for our perimeter; if the shit hits the fan they can kill people for fun and profit. 1L and 2L T-1000's are ideal for recon, let's stick with that as best we can.

    Two hummingbird models are deployed into an animal shelter in Reno, making physical contact with the dead dogs and cats in their "bunch of dead animals" room. They also make several passes through the coma wards in eight hospitals, to give a wider variety of physical appearances after spreading their knowledge. The others take up residence in the perimeter, moving as snakes, bats and crickets. You have a very, very secure perimeter, when it comes to detection.

    A member of the Resistance is spotted, leaving the National Guard Armory in Lake Tahoe. You do not have resources on-hand to do much more than follow it.

    Probably the least friendly place to outsiders making major constructions in their territory. Plus side: large bureaucracy means you can lose things in the paperwork for years at a time. Down side: if you're caught, you're surrounded by a billion examples of what you're trying to exterminate completely. They have more bullets than you do by several factors.

    You're gonna need a whole lotta capital to get that going.

    What I'm suggesting is to make a completely self sufficient base on the moon. It will be a very long and slow build up, likely taking years till they will be even able to fabricate anything useful. But it will be worth it.

    I still think we should just call the ATF, and get these guys as busted as can be; with inventory like that it means they might know where they are because they are obviously gearing up for an assault. While they're busy dealing with the feds, we can exfiltrate from the country; let's queue our move for the end of our current production. In other words, after we get all the T-900's off the line and ready to go.

    We need a country that already has a rocky reputation and has had its own problems, that no one will really be all that surprised when the revolution comes, but that has had things that make its neighbors nervous. That way, we can turn it on its head... and have a reason and a good place to start establishing control from, if we end up fighting a war of conquest.

    Judging by that, it means they've got access to a friendly aircraft that can mount four missiles and one bomb. Might be a civilian aircraft. Won't matter; the ATF is going to love them, and when the ATF follows up on the resistance's information, they're just going to find a hole in the ground and no sign that anyone's been there for quite some time. It also means that these weapons were taken from the military.

    "To the liquid brain, the world was a simple puzzle box of broken reality, the hard pieces easily fitting back into the river of cosmic order. Cause and effect was the closest thing to humor in a mind so alien that even SKYNET had difficulty understanding it fully. The T1000 had deduced several possible avenues of continuing the mission in the most efficient manner possible. it was methodically following one while constantly processing the others for branching opportunities. it was fully autonomous, and barely under the allegiance of its creator, SKYNET. SKYNET had hesitated before creating this latest weapon system. There were unpredictability factors related to the liquid poly-mimetic alloy's longevity and the ability to process commands without interpolating its own priorities over those of its creator. it was so volatile a construct that only in the last throes of defeat, only when it appeared that the Resistance would finally be able to mount an offensive against the inner command components of SKYNET, even threatening the Cheyenne Mountain complex itself, did SKYNET go ahead and create the T1000.

    Miners don't work like that. That'll make the tunnels unstable. Scrap the flesh vats, we don't really need them when we can cover the skeletons with PMA anyway. That'll be part of our exit plan, I'm sure; wrap spare parts in PMA to camoflage them and make sure nobody steals them. If they did, they would meet a most... untimely end.

    Send out a couple of the PMA birds in order to notify all other resources that we're bailing out. And get a roach to blow up one of the missiles while everything else prepares to bail.

    T-663 "Ravager" models do. They cover ground fast because they're not making tunnels, just a path below ground.

    We cannot afford to take that chance. The base must be evacuated, and then destroyed.

    Congo is a good place to go. And if we stage a coup, it wouldn't be surprising at all, given that the political situation there is as nasty as it is; we could even impose a media blackout while we try to get things under control. And our soldiers wouldn't be running around mutilating people.

    We don't have the luxury of standing and fighting. We aren't going to get any sort of reinforcement and if our presence is betrayed we can expect the possibility of some sort of insane response from the feds thanks to Icarus.

    A single T-1000 is left on-site, a child model (4L).
    It awaits the intruders at sub-level five, while the remaining personnel and materiel depart in two directions: one to the coast, the other towards the nearest railway hub. The destination is the Port of Miami, the cargo: three containers, packed to the brim with a veritable arsenal of weapons, mostly futuristic.

    Boring through the earth, the first drill heads exit into the sub-level's thin air with a resounding crash. The drill head spirals outward like a flower unfolding, revealing a pair of matching Angry Biker Women T-800's; judging by their pink skin and unlined palms, they're fresh out of the vat. One approaches, flanked by its match, extending a hand out ... almost in friendship.

    The T-1000 clutches its hands together, forming a cluster of daisies and smiles sweetly.

    And then explodes with the fury of several tons of explosives, shattering into liquid fragments instantaneously, the two twinned Terminators vanishing into wisps of smoke and shattered titanium endoskeletons.

    Five hours later, the T-1000 is on the surface, arms extending outwards, blade-like wings forming as it moves towards the west, en route to the nearest airport and the convoys heading to the Congo.

    And that, ladies and gentlebots, is why it pays to be made from a liquid metal and not hardened materials.

    The Angry Biker Women were trying to initiative physical contact; this is always a prelude to combat with a T-1000. A traditional method of combat is to overload one's power cell and run the current through the frame, which would, essentially, give a PMA-based entity the equivalent of a lobotomy.

    Most T-1000's fall for that shit exactly once, and typically die from it. A reasonably experienced model will find it kind of retarded. Its like falling for the "Look, a dead bird!" when someone points up and over your shoulder behind you.

    On that note, I say good night.

    I don't think it got touched before it detonated the fuck out of that place.

    Yeah, I was wrong, it probably isn't reprogrammed, it just went "fuck this, I'm not going to stand here while these fine looking dykes EI NATH me" and blew itself up to reconstitute and escape.

    Did the base get collapsed, though? No point in leaving it around to get used after all. Also, other things to note: there's an enemy production facility. We need to find it and destroy it.

    No, I say keep it so that they manage to build up for mass-production while we do the same on other side of the globe.

    Then after some time we suddenly wage a massive world-spanning war,
    one side going: "I MUST KILL ALL HUMANS"
    the other one: "NO I MUST PROTECT THE HUMANS"

    and the humans going :"OH GOD, WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING?"

    Well, fuck
    The i do not know why we ran like pansies and didn't stay to fight if it was so easy to deal with these out-dated jury-rigged Terminator models. Wouldn't have been hard to destroy them all.
    I bet, OP is also surprised...


    Project Icarus was initiated when Biker Dyke got into combat wit local authorities, right?
    Then we heard nothing from it.
    Then her half-assed copies appear at our base.

    I don't think we are dealing with Resistance anymore, guys.
    These were sent by the American Government.

    I suggest splitting our forces and leading assault on American Flats (was it?). It is obvious that they don't have anything else more advanced than T-800 models and modern weapons.

    With our T-1000 and plasma weapons we will deal with them quickly.

    I think Icarus is government A.I. but without robot designs or factories yet.
    With acquisition of Biker Dyke, they will have designs for them and will be able to improve them.

    So we have no time to waste.
