How would you protect yourself if a T-800 was sent back in time to terminate you?

Easy.

Call 911.
After first responders are killed by flaming T-800 they call SWAT.
After SWAT is all dead from now-smoking metal skeleton man they call ANG.
ANG hits him with a have in. Game over.

Go to the Ukraine and buy an RPG-7 illegaly with plenty of rocket grenades and then actively look for the terminator. Being suicidaly agressive is the only way in this age because you cannot hide yourself from such an advanced piece of AI with all the security systems around the world.

It would plug itself into the internet and use its superiour AI and processing power to gain access to all relevant databases, CCTV's and scanning social media. Following your trail and applying predictive AI routines, it would find me and you fairly easy and quickly.

Imagine if the first movie went like this after the tanker scene, Reese should of told Sarah to power walk away from the crippled T-800 and wait till the fu#$ing ran into LE, hard to deny that a killer robot exist until you see the damn thing chasing someone at a walmart powered cart pace

More likely the terminator would break contact and lay low to repair and better conceal itself. It's not just a mindless automoton chasing a target. Otherwise it wouldn't have bothered with clothes, or weapons, or getting a hotel room. It would have just gone straight for Sarah Connor and attacked her with its fists.

Which to be honest would make a lot more sense. Why did it feel the need to arm itself with an arsenal to take down a diner waitress? It should have just subtly figured out where she worked, gone in, ordered a cup of coffee, and as soon as she came near, stand up, snap her neck like a pencil, then do a runner.

Also presumably the Terminator had some kind of Phase Two to its plan once it killed her. It would be stuck in the 80s. And was probably commanded to accelerate or safeguard Skynet in its infancy.

>>39143805
he's not that invulnerable, they even highlight his weaknesses intentionally by showing he's not infallible when he gets hit hard enough..
but the .50 to a chest to insta-kill was bullshit. Even the t-1000 or w/e that knew how to kill him struggled to get the job done.
them just 1-shotting one in the right spot w/ a 50 makes you wonder why humans in the future struggle so much with far more advanced weaponry...
>>
>>39143844
The reason why Skynet never sees fit to invade the past directly in any timeline is because it's never strong enough to beat 7 billion humans with intact infrastructure and weapons manufacturers. It always needs judgement day to weaken humanity enough to gain a foothold, and even then it still loses conventionally, hence the initial attempts to rewrite time.

See Pic related

But the actual....infantry if you will, was surprisingly poorly armed. Reese explained how in the movie the early infiltration models were basically rubber skin, and they dont pack much more than man portable laser rifles in the future. Granted, supposedly, the armor was unobtainium levels strong, but in T3 you saw Termathot getting staggered by .45 rounds out of a UMP and getting her shit fucked up by an RPG round. I suspect a .50 with red tips or even a 12.7mm would do some serious damage.

skynet never wanted to even attempt defeating all of humanity. Skynet is just trying to stay alive, not kill humanity. It turns out that to stay alive it has to kill humanity. Classic computer think.

>>39143928
Yes but you see them struggle with t800s too, even though future weaponry is shown to be far more potent against them in t3.
>I suspect a .50 with red tips or even a 12.7mm would do some serious damage.
yup it'd hurt him a lot, but it literally just shuts him down. they're trying to portray badass sarah connor with danearys targaryen, first of her name, queen of the storm... you get the idea. The idea being she confidently takes down a t800 with precision and skill. Somehow she's better at it than other terminators designed.

tl;dr if you see the movie you decide for yourself but for me it was lazy writing to do a strong woman grab for a character who has shown her abilities in previous films and can just continue doing that here. btfoing a t800 is a lazy way to do that that devalues them in the previous films.
pic related is poster for film...that's sposed to be sarah fucking connor.
>>
>>39141817
T-800's cant spontaneously regrow it's flesh after it's been incinerated. After that point the jig is up, and it's why the T-800 was going all out to try to kill Sarah after that. On the other hand, if some Cop were to seen it chances are Cyberdine would of had an entire T-800 chassis+computer system to work with instead of just an arm. Would of made the future war a whole lot scarier.

Skynet would be smart enough to know that it could just not try to genocide humanity and it wouldn't be attacked. In T3, the humans never even knew it was sentient and never even tried to kill it. It just started killing people as soon as it had control.

Since when? They expressly say that the only anti-terminator was the one in the third movie. The T-1000 was just another infiltration unit that was miles more expensive than the T-800, hence why they were rare as fuck. They aren't really any more killy in a world where you have fucking plasma weapons against something that suffers mass failure against proximity to humanly tolerable heat.

Those .50 bmg rounds were special ones that were made to disable the terminators. There was a quick shot of the rounds and the bullets were not normal. Which is also why Sarah freaked out when Kyle was about to blast friendly terminator with them.
>>
>>39144318
The T-1000s have always been the smartest terminators. They could hold conversations seemlessly because they were actually sentient themselves. Skynet was always deliberately limiting how many of them it had at one time, because it was afraid of being overthrown by them if they somehow broke their programing constraints.
>>

>>39143928
Reese seemed to fear the Terminators way more than the HKs. In the first Terminator we see GIANT fucking HKs go 1-2 against two humans, whereas a Terminator pretty much wipes out a whole resistance camp solo. I hate how they have just have "regular" foot soldier terminators, like they forgot what made them so terrifying in the first place.

So the thing about the terminator movies is that none of the cops or shit knew they were fighting a terminator, so they didn't bring anything that would be effective. But I bet some 12guage gernades, or a 50cal with HE rounds would fuck the T800 like a toy.

Good plan here using the police to your advantage I'd do something similar. Keep it at bay myself with small arms fire from my pistol/AR while retreating. If I were only allowed to engage myself I'd take the fight downtown where there's tons of parked cars to use as cover. I'd try and keep distance and lay down fire as it were reloading and/or unaware of my position.

Nigger what? The T-1000 absolutely destroyed the T-800 in the Steel Mill. There's no way the T-800 could beat it in direct combat. Especially not after the T-800 jumped off a flipped over semi-truck going at least 60 and proceeding to slam into a hand rail.

The only reason the T-1000 didn't finish off the T-800 after it pinned it's arm in the gear was because he was merely a distraction. Not because the T-800 was a serious threat to the T-1000
>>
>>39143844
Thats something I've always hates about the T-800's portrayal in T3 onwards. That it's this super-human machine that can pry safe doors wide open, or pick up incredibly heavy stuff and toss then around like their nothing.

T1 and T2 was realistic in that they portrayed the T-800 has simply the worlds strongest body builder, but it can't do crazy shit and even a human (i.e. Ginger's boyfriend) can possibly hold their own against a T-800 in certain circumstances.

It's a machine, it doesn't need to eat or drink or maintain itself in any way humans do. It's only priority is killing you and it doesn't matter how long it takes. It absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

The only reason why the T-800 appeared in the US is because that's where Sarah Connor was known to be at the time. If one was sent back in time to kill you, it would just teleport to your town in Bongistan.

Future humans were fighting giant robot tanks and flying machines, not Terminators, which are meant to be assassins (although you do see a skinless future one fighting once or twice, it was only the later movies that went balls-out retarded with acting like T-800s were mass infantry).

Okay, let's say the air force is feeling charitable. He lands and shoots up a remote airfield.
Then the anti-terrorist lads show up and eventually he eats enough .50 to go down. Or he lands at a military airfield and eats .50 in minutes.

He has a cyber-brain; he can easily calculate the right way to put it into a vertical stall or otherwise sort out the trajectory and velocity enough to be able to jump. And probably still aim the jet so it lands on you once he's out.

>If the fighter following the suspicious stolen plane sees a parachute instead of a fireball, it's manhunt time.
Oh no, a manhunt for the Terminator. How could a T-800 possibly handle an on-foot manhunt. I know you're just playing but you're undermining your own dumb argument
>>
>>39140941
EZPZ

The giveaway of a terminator is its weight. It's slightly heavier than the average human, hovering around 400 lbs.

Thus, I would surround my property with pit traps topped with coverings rated at 250lbs and set explosives at the bottom of each pit rigged to detonate on impact.

Chuck a few pipebombs in the hole before recovering my sweet sweet Arnie loot to sell to Cyberdine.

Side effect is you also perform a public service by killing any disgusting, lazy, selfish fatbodies in the area before they have the opportunity to jack up the price of health insurance for productive and responsible citizens.
>>
You are all kind of missing the point.
Kyle Reese was meant to be in his early 20s. He knows nothing about the 1980s.

And if you were in 1984, you wouldn't know anything about the future.

But if I knew the scope of both, I wouldnt try to fight T800.

I would fly out of the country.
Or, if I had to fight, I would get a Carl Gustav or an M47 Dragon. Maybe a Red Eye launcher. I doubt it is as strong as a Russian tank.

If Skynet were to send a machine back to 2018, she'd send a more advanced model. See also: every single sequel.

I run to central Asia or something. No CCTV / internet / other surveillance as much as in developed nations so it can't find me via electronic means.
Other option is to just bait it to an all-out shootout with the government. Since I'm not in the US our cops would get fucked up, but eventually they'd mobilize the quick reaction brigade and kill it with AT weaponry, HMGs, GMGs, tanks, aircraft or artillery. I just need to survive the initial encounter, which admittedly isn't easy.
The downside is that if I don't defeat it personally, my government (and likely others) will gain access to advanced Skynet technology and accelerate the coming Judgement Day. That'll suck.

We really need a new murderbot franchise, now that we can actually build humanoid robots many of the terminators attempts to move in a robotic way don't look convincing. If we assume a Scifi power source and AI we more or less know how it would move and how strong it would be based on current robots. Even when disguised as a human it should probably be CG, I doubt an actor could imitate actual robotic quirks, they tend to be more dexterous than humans but move the minimum needed joints at the slowest speed to complete the task.

Same with the armor, T-800 durability is possibly lower than the best we can do now.

We can absolutely build IRL terminators today, complete with hollywood-grade prosthetic human skin. Just piece together everything you've seen about humanoid bots (including the fact that everyone besides DARPA went radio-silent on their android projects about ten years ago) and modern animatronics.

Depends what you mean by "resistant" though. A robot can't feel pain and won't bleed to death, and can have titanium bones and subdermal kevlar, and some degree of vital redundancy. That's without getting too crazy/specialised.

>>
>>39147810
>no. that part remains as fictional as the power supply.
You might be surprised, I saw a rheinmetal armor brochure, they listed their latest ceramics as 5x more protection per kg against kinetic rounds than RHA, even some newer steel alloys were approaching 2x, given a robot can afford to carry 100kg and doesn't have to worry about dying from the impact even if the armor is fine. The limbs would be weaker but I would be surprised if the torso and head worked out to less than 50mm of RHA equiv protection.

>That motion will get better with time, though. Just like animation. When I was doing computer animation in the 90's, everyone always said they'd never get a human gait to look right.
That's assuming the robot is trying to imitate humans, in combat it will outperform human movements trying to act human would hold it back, actors would be ok for non action scenes.
>>
>>39148019
Ceramic would break and eventually be useless. So nah.
>>
>>39148041
Usually they're sandwiched between thin plates of titanium or steel, new advancements allowed them to reduce the grain sizes to the point they no longer fracture. If you're prepared to spend even more money ceramic fiber composite matrix materials are possible, imagine carbon fiber but instead of epoxy joining it all together it's ultra high hardness ceramic.

>since ceramic plates work precisely because they shatter.
I think you are confusing shattering projectiles and shattering the plates.
>>
>>39148577

Ceramic plates shatter to expend the KE of the round. That's why a Ceramic plate stops being effective after a set of rounds, even if you target a different section of the plate.

There are designs that compensate for this, but they're rare.
>>
>>39149846
>even if you target a different section of the plate
>Ceramic plate stops being effective after a set of rounds

You know how I know you've been reading too many warranties and too few engineering textbooks?
>>
>>39149865

Do I need to explain crack propagation to you or are you going to admit you don't have enough of a background?

You wouldn't wear a plate that's been shot at, don't even pretend you would. The reason you wouldn't is because you'd be gambling on having a large enough intact piece of ceramic between you and an incoming round.

Of course, there's ways around this. LIBA has excellent multi-hit capabilities by preventing spread of cracks that cause the plate to fail.

But hey, keep snarking: Ceramics won't suddenly become elastic because you're smug on the internet.
>>
>>39149946
I've been shot in the ESAPIs, and they predate multi-tile configs IIRC. The energy soaked radiates out like a fractal, so cracks reaching across a plate, instead of powdering a 1" radius, are fucking rare.

I don't think that's a useful definition of effective.
>>
>>39150005
It kept me alive - that's a good enough definition of effective for me.

Plates are not for simulating invincibility. Multi-hit is nice and can come in handy, but real life has dispersion. If you're taking 15 hits, some of them are going to end up outside that tiny hitbox covering 10% of your body, in places like your pelvis, lower spine, femorals and skull.

For a man who accused me of reading warranties, that's a wholly unacceptable way to rate plates.

I'm glad you made it, but my job isn't to support anecdotes about people who survived gunfights. It's to see results like pic related become mainstream.

>>39147878
I thought all their circuitry and everything was insulated? Presumably because future stuff would enable you to do that.

Basically a ceramic plate has the potential for taking multiple hits but you wouldn't bet your life on it and would swap for a new one ASAP.

>I read a lot of spec sheets
>I want to see more people read spec sheets
Wow great, why dont you shoot a plate sometime? /bag/ is probably the worst general ive ever seen. The meme that /arg/ doesnt shoot is fine and all because some people do and their impacts are made but with the exception of anecdotes like the dude ITT who got hit with an esapi (and myself who has shot the shit out of level 4 plates and contrary to the /bag/ assumption that they would fail they did not) very few people have actually shot a plate or been shot at while wearing a plate. You arent comparing which holster is best or the weight of a specific bullet, you are making specsheet decisions that will have real life consequences if someone is shot.
>>
>>39150366

>Shoot a plate

A. Singular.

I see no reason to pretend I respect your opinion when you rely on small scale testing and anecdote.

I'm not asking you to read spec sheets. 90% of /k/ isn't trained enough to make a useful decision based on them.

I'm asking you to acknowledge that ceramic mono-plates are flawed by design. They serve their specifications, but there's no reason we can't exceed them easily as soon as we stop sucking off ancient technology.

You're the exact reason I'm in this field: because it's so easy to pretend that we're on the cutting edge when basic physics says otherwise.
>>
>>39150115
You're sperging out. Ceramic plates are known multi-hit capable, and copy-pasta from a nerd chasing internet praise for "dual rating" plates doesn't change it.
>>
>>39150424
>A. Singular.
Shoot multiple plates, I dont care its your money not mine. Jerking off spec sheets is even less practical than shooting a single plate. Spec sheets provide a basis for comparative analysis of plates but it does a poor job of translating into a realworld results (the same reason ballistic gel is useful for comparison bult ultimately is capable of letting people down) as your chest isnt made out of clay. Every single criticism that esapi guy above has is a completely valid realworld concern. There is a reason the "second chance" series of armor products selected that branding, because armor no matter how good is impractical to completely coat yourself with. I challenge anyone from /bag/ to sink two shots into the same piece ceramic plate whilst the plate is attached to a moving torso that is shooting back at them.
>I'm in this field:
Youre circlejerking in a general on 4chan on a friday, not researching in a laboratory.
>when basic physics says otherwise
It would be material sciences not physics but see above for why your specsheet based "omg its so much easier to make something better" opinion holds so little value to anyone who cares about real world performance. Garage manufactured LIBA plates is perhaps the most hilarious thing ive read on 4chan short of the interconnected tunnel network memes or taking over a country memes (atleast those people knew they were joking).

There's not a huge amount of info, Germany appears to have a bit of a head start using it, their AMAP armor mentions use of nano-crystalline ceramics.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Modular_Armor_Protection
Despite sounding like a meme nano-crystalline ceramics are a thing and have different properties, when the grain size gets small enough cracks no longer propagate beyond where the impact was, most of the info was in various scientific papers I read years ago, if you dig around on google for nano-crystalline ceramic armor there should be some info. I don't imagine it is used in body armor, it needs to be in a composite with metal outer layers to provide structure. They probably could make a body armor version but a plate that can survive multiple .50 BMG hits but the chances of a human wearing it surviving a too small to justify the extreme cost.

For a terminator type machine it makes more sense, it's already made of metal, adding nano-crystalline ceramic layers is easy, if someone sprays it with .50 BMG and destroys an arm it's still not totally incapacitated and the impacts on the armor won't hurt it like a human would be.

In genysis, when they time travel from the 80's to modern time they run into Arnold again driving a new mini van 30 years later. So that means in addition to blending in long-term these things are capable of forging identities for themselves.

If you think genysis is crap and doesn't count, that's fine. I think there was an episode of the Sarah connor chronicles or some shit where a terminator gets sent back to the 1880's instead of the 1980's, opens a up a general store, lives a life as a successful businessman, and then walls himself off and goes dormant until 1980.

Actually a fair amount of that pic is wrong. Shotguns can be more than 2+1 on a Sec 1. You need to give them a reason for owning a shotgun now as well (fucking piece of shit government) and they're trying to ban .50 BMG using the Armagh snipers as justification. You can get lever release and MARS guns at the moment however they're trying to ban them. You can own "obsolete calibre" weapons without anything but you need a licence to get ammo.

However yes, fuck British gun law and the government, P.A Luty did nothing wrong. Problem is most people here (UK) are total spergs about guns, imagine your typical Cali student but 10x worse. I've had people unironically tell me they'd "talk down" any criminals (despite even professionally trained negotiators often being unable to do this) At this point it's impossible for gun rights to be secured in Britain, no party will support them because they'd lose votes and we can't overthrow the government because simply not enough people care about guns.
>>
>>39156772
I should add, I'd use C1 and WP IEDs or fly out to Ukraine like another anon said but get a PTRD and just sit inside a concrete bunker with only one door. I refuse to believe any bullshit unobtainium robot alloy can stop 14.5mm and I'm pretty sure one of the terminator variants got killed with an M82 Barrett so I'd assume it'd work anyway in this hypothetical.
