The forging, the arrival, the fight and the termination of young T-800.
This Cyberdyne Systems Terminator, Model 101, T-800 series, was produced on year 2029 and then send back through time to 1984 to terminate Sarah Connor.
The Terminator is an infiltration unit, part man - part machine. Underneath it's a hyperalloy combat chassis, microprocessor-controlled, fully armored, very tough. But outside it's living human tissue. Flesh, skin, hair, blood. It's covered with living tissue, including flesh, skin, hair, blood and body fluids.
The T-800 has a circulatory system which is controlled by a tiny pneumatic pump which maintains a constant pressure. This allows the T-800 to bleed convincingly when wounded.
As the tissue is living, it is warm to the touch, therefore a T-800 will not show different from a real human on thermal scanners. In addition, since the tissue is as real as those of human, it can bleeding, sweating, bad breathing and even aging. Given enough time, a T-800 can regrow its tissue sheath, at least if its not completely destroyed.
A Terminator can withstand standard 20th century firearms, up to and including 5.56mm NATO assault rifle rounds, crash through walls intact, and survive explosions to some degree. It can fully operate for 120 years on it's power cell before it drains. If main power source is damaged, it's able to find an alternate source, described on the DVD commentary as heat sinks, harnessing the thermal energy from the hot surroundings. It also has redundant backup hydraulic systems. 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 and wind velocity; analyzing human emotional states; analyzing body language and direction of muscle contraction; calculating the force of gravity; analyzing texture and temperature of materials; and sensing radar scans. It is fitted with an internal chronometer.
