    Applications

    Applications will be posted in this thread. Unlike the regular application system, no revisions may be made once the application has been evaluated. These apps will be a lot less lenient than the others as well, to accommodate for the unique drones that become available.

    Applicants should have at least a week as a 600/700 under their belt before considering applying. While it's not necessary, it allows admins to get a general feel for you, and how you roleplay as a drone. We're looking for people that can think for themselves, and make good decisions without an admin there to point them in the right direction.

    The way apps are handled have changed. From now on, players can only apply for the entry level (or Tier I) drone. Once they prove they can be trusted with that drone, either through actions on server or through compelling cases as to why they should be trusted more, they will have the opportunity to advance up to the next tier. Needless to say, those rostered as a higher tier have access to all drones below them. Kinda like how SRP handled mutants.

    200s remain restricted to members of the administration team. Things such as 704s will be locked behind their own application format, and exist outside of the tiered system.

    Applications for 'specialized' drones such as the 704, 500R should be sent to myself (Mother) and Malum Umbra.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    Support drones are typically sent out once an offensive or defensive protocol has been called by Skynet Command.
    The Support Drones help equalize the playing field by assisting with stronger defensive or offensive capabilities than the standard 600 or 700 are capable of doing.
    The 100 and 400 provide heavy fire support while also having a bigger frame and more durable armor (metal) than the 600/700, while the 500 sacrifices the armor to allow for greater mobility and to allow for the opportunity of quick recon.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:

    As stated above, the 500 is much quicker then the 600/700, it can run faster and jump higher.
    It also is not as intelligent as a 700, it will find a target and attack, but will move to various different angles to provide an offensive advantage. It does not self preserve and has lower accuracy than a 600 does.

    Tactically, it does not perform recon on its own, it will usually move in a group.
    It is much more prone to methods of capture as it is more top heavy and is not as observant (Mainly straightforward sight), and is more susceptible to damage than a 600 or 700 are.
    The 500 is utilized when Skynet is planning an offensive and needs forward recon performed.
    It can also bode as a distraction to hostiles while the main force advances and attacks.


    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.
    [*]You have joined during an Event and have come across a group travelling. What action should you take?

    An FOB that Tech Comm has occupied has come under heavy fire from Skynet Forces. The TC Forces choose to abandon the FOB and RTB or move back to join up with the main TC force. The 500 is sent to scout ahead and monitor the Tech Comm force as they move, continuously relaying their location back to Skynet. Tech Comm forces would catch on to the 500's advancements, as it is not all that stealthy, and choose to engage upon the 500. The drone would engage back while also moving around in unorganized patterns, mainly choosing to engage as a means to confuse the forces. It would either choose to sacrifice itself as a means to keep Tech Comm forces scattered until the main Skynet force could arrive, or move back and regroup with the main Skynet force if commanded to.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    Support drones fulfill very specialized roles and tasks. Where 600s and 700s are the main infantry and fighting force, support drones are there to provide well... support, for things standard infantry cannot accomplish. For example, 400s are heavy infantry and fire support, they're used to move the enemy from cover or another fighting position with its explosives and heavy cannons. Whereas the 500 is a light scout drone, often used to gather intel and perform quick hit and run scenarios on vehicles and small groups. In short, they're basically squad specializations.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    [*]The roll it fills

    Comparing a 500 to 600s and 700s, they're seen as a very light drone. Unlike the standard infantry, 500s are quick and agile. They can be used to send forward prior to an attack to scout out enemy positions and gather intel. They're also suited for quick hit and run type missions, like a moving vehicle convoy where they can get in, do some damage, and quickly pull out - this allows the heavier drones to converge on the damaged convoy to clean up. They're also meant to annoy, shoot quickly at one target, then move to the next. Keep them moving, keep them occupied.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?

    Well to start off, make sure you have admin permission. As a 400, I would be behind the first lines. This allows the standard infantry to lay down fire whilst the taller model of a 400 lays down fire from above them, this maximizes fire power and preservation of the drone. The 400 would also be focusing hardpoints, such as gunnests or heavy cover. 400 models would lay heavy fire on these emplacements, along with rockets to force the hostile forces out of cover. This then allows the standard infantry to target these hostiles. Essentially, they should be covering the main infantry by driving hostile assets from cover, and taking out larger targets such as reprogs and exo-outfitted enemies. On an ooc level, you shouldn't be spamming rockets and sending them into super large groups of T-C, unless they're acting out of negligence - which changes it a bit.

    How long have you been in SkyNET? : Decent amount of time, since the start of March I believe.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.
    Not every task can be fufilled by the standard ground unit, such as the 600 or 700, even the 800. Sometimes larger weapons, or lightweight and fast machines is needed, rather than a typical terminator. For example, usually a 600 is found simply patrolling streets or holding sentry on a fixed point, only looking for targets to shoot. While a support drone, such as the 500 can proceed by providing recon for local drones, such as simply running by and stirring up a nest, sending a patrol or squadron out in the wastes in shambles, where the simple 600 could do its task of terminated them, with the assistance of a 500 running around at mach one speeds. However, not all support drones are like the 500. For example, the 400 or the origins of the 500 has a completely different role. Instead of speed it has size and strength, and instead of armor it has weapons such as chain guns, and dumbfire rockets packed full of HE. The 400 would usually be found with larger patrols consisting of 600s or 700s, placed at the rear due to its inferior armor, and high priority to the mission. With the armament a 400 it is able to obliterate small resistance outposts, take down both unarmored and armored vehicles, and sabotage and mission sensitive equipment in the resistance possesion, such as weapon caches.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    The 400 shows many differences to the 500, its later model. Firstly the 400's size varies greatly from the 500, it being tall and lumberingly slow, sometimes slower than the clumsy 600. Meanwhile the smaller and lightly armored 500 goes for a lighter build and weapons system to achieve its role, being fast and deadly. With the speed, the 500 can sometimes achieve more or less the same as a 400, where it can be fast to avoid some heavy weapons such as anti-material rifles, or missiles. While the slow 400 doesn't have much speed to speak of, so most of the time it finds itself eating a barrage of bullets if its escort has been taken down. Comparing these two models to the newer humanoid models is simple, they both share the 'approach and kill' tactic, excluding the 700, where a 500 would continue to walk towards its target until it is taken down. Where as the 400 shares a similar tactic, but instead it would focus on a general area of resistance activity, and fire away its armament at the location, while pushing to assure complete destruction and chaos.

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    400

    Search and Destroy tactics, the 400 utilizes in a manner to assure a destruction of a small outpost or a patrol out in the ruins. Accompanied with other models such as the 600s and 700s, the 400 would begin its assault very similar to the 600 models, where as the 700s would take flanks to either cut off or ambush the soldiers. Assaulting with the 600s, the 400 utilizes both its chaingun and rockets to suppress and bombard the target with unrelenting force, as both of the 600s and 700s push to clear out the stragglers.

    500
    Once again, search and Destroy tactics, which the 500 utilizes in a slightly different manner compared to the 600 and the 400. Due to its light design and light and high rate of fire plasma cannons, the 500 uses its speed to catch up to high speed targets such as vehicles or convoys, and abuse its targets. Even with the somewhat weak weapons, a patrol of 500s assaulting a convoy could prove useful to other ground units, such as sending the group into shambles and attempt to take out the 500, while a reinforcement of 600s/700s arrive at the scene to finish the job. Think of it like a drive-by shooter, or a hit and run, keeping the enemy on their toes.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have ambushed a Tech-Comm patrol of three soldiers, two privates and a sergeant. They armed with a mix of projectile munitions and RPGs, but they have not yet seen you. What do you do?
    500

    As a 500, I'd firstly start out by either requesting additional 500 models, if I do not have any with me already. If I was already part of a group, firstly we'd start out by S2M'ing the group to provide a simple warning of the prescence of the squadron or lone unit, and provide them a chance of fight or flight. To make sure they stick with a decision, S2K will be taken into effect if the group decides to mindlessly rush, or abuse S2M policy of drones, where they turn around in the midst of fleeing to take out the drone.

    **Thump thump thump thump. A high paced drone quickly advances onto the scene of a patrol, locking up its visor to the soldiers. Soon the party arrives in an ambush pattern, stationed at different firing angles, once in position they all begin to open fire in unison.

    **The soldiers quickly scramble to their positions and begin to focus fire on the closest drone, quickly taking it down, sending the remaining two drones to rush to a new position.

    **As the drones leave their posts, the soldiers quickly rise from their posts and begin to flee from the scene, the Anti-tank soldier holds their ground though, firing a dumbfire at one of the 500s, sending it off balance and tumbling into the concrete, disabling it.

    **Lastly the final 500 arrives at the ATs location, aligning its cannons with the suspect, quickly sending a barrage of ultra violet beams into their direction, pelting both them and their cover with smoldering burns and holes.

    [*] Create your own scenario.
    400

    With the heavy armament of the 400, it is an extremely helpful OOC tactic to take S2M into account, seeing as both rockets and chainguns can be misused oftenly and result in an unbalanced event. Utilizing heavy S2M tactics with the rockets, barraging close enough to enemy fortifications to at least send them away, or damage them slightly to alert that the 400 is nothing to reckon with.

    **The heart-skipping beat of metallic footsteps closes onto the resistance stronghold, soon the chrome beasts silhouetting on the horizon. Conflict instantly breaks out with the unrelenting force of miniguns and Plasma based rifles. Amongst the battle a tall lumbering 400 steps out into view, its rocket-pods folding out into action and unleashing unsuspecting firepower into the stronghold, tearing apart reinforcements.

    **Easily enough the ground units push up with the assistance of the 400, as the enemy cover is sabotaged with the high explosive, HMG emplacements obliterated in the barrage, rendering the 600s and 700s a breeze as they storm the buildings, clearing out what is left of the resistance. Meanwhile the 400 stations itself amongst the ashes, awaiting potential counter-attacks, its chassis rotating and its chainguns awaiting a target, as the visor scans the environment.

    **Ploink! A marksman align a shot on the 400s rocketpod, sending it into a glorius explosion, sending the 400 off balance. One of its chaingun raises from the destroyed chassis and blindly opens suppressive fire in the predicted position of the shooter, to no avail.

    **Dlink! The marksman aligns another shot onto the 400's visor, obliterating it out of service, soon enough the 400s idle buzz soon dies down as it cuts off the power, sustaining severe damage and ending its mission. However, the 400s silent battlecry does not go unheard, as the occupied ground forces soon move to assist the lost drone.


    Went with an attempt at both 400 and 500.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700:
    Support drones are a specialized unit used to fill the rolls which 600's or 700's are incapable of filling.
    The 400, for example, is essentially a mobile weapons platform: it's large frame outfitted with chaingun lasers and rockets to be used on the go.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:

    T-400:
    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    The main purpose of a t-400 is to take out or suppress priority targets: small outposts, vehicles, pesky weapons squads, big clumps, et cetera. They're not particularly intelligent, despite their priorities, and will employ tactics similar to a 600: single-mindedly approaching head-on, never utilizing ambush or self-preservation tactics as you'd see in a 700, and then some.

    [*]The roll it fills
    T-400's are the equivalent to the typical TC weapons squad: armed with an RPG and plasma-firing chaingun. As said before, they're used to take out or suppress priority targets.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.
    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?


    T-400:
    Prior to the assault, be sure that the team I'm going in with has been authorized by the administration to do so. Once done, I'd group up with a sizable amount of units: an amount equivalent to the amount of TC/weaponry of TC at the time of the attack for fairness' sake. We'd enter from the front, providing suppressing fire at first to allow TC to react if they hadn't already noticed our incursion. If anyone acted particularly reckless in the S2K then it'd be fair to say that they're not to be held back on. I'd continue to S2M throughout the duration of the S2K, avoiding the use of rockets if we're in a particularly cramped place. We'd eventually allow ourselves to be defeated, unless told otherwise by the administration, and either respawn to repeat the process or return to patrols/base/etc.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    The differences between a 600 and 700 are the armour, intelligence and mobility. 700's are faster and more lightweight armour wise, however they are smarter tactically in combat. 600's are slower, run and gun armoured shoot'em'up bots.
    The differences between a 400 and a 500 are the weapons, armour, mobility and size. The 500 is a smaller lovely little thing that runs fast and has two plasma guns. The 400 is a big boy with rockets and plasma and is very slow and is more heavily armoured.
    The roll they fill: 500's are used for recon and mostly move in packs. 400's Are large assault siege bots. -- 600's are patrol bots that move in groups or alone, 700's would usually play a more sneaky, flanking role in combat.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph:
    [*]You are patrolling and have found what looks to be an out of bunker group. What do you do?

    T-500: I would first scan the group and gather as much information on them as possible and relay it back to SkyNet. I would then stalk the group to find out what they're doing out of bunker, in the scenario of them scavenging or scouting out. I would request for backup and set up an ambush for them (Backup size depends on group size.). During this ambush I would sit at the back line and lay down fire from behind whatever support SkyNet sent. Keeping my distance and playing carefully are quite important when you have very little armour and it allows for you to make a retreat if the attack is unsuccessful. If they are setting up a camp or end up leading me to somewhere that leaves them in an immobile position, I would relay that back to SkyNet and continue to keep an eye on them until a decision is made to either create an ambush for them or follow them back to their bunker for information on in and out numbers of said bunker.

    Accepted: sorry for the long delay Yetti.

    I have been around in skynet for serveral months now, i joined Skynet at 19th Febuary 2018

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    These Support Drones are needed when the T-600 series or T-700 series have a trouble with large amounts off human groups to deal with, quicker scouting the area ( which the T-500 does the job ) or taking part of raids on small outposts.


    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:

    [*]The roll it fills


    T-400
    The T-400 drone is a heavy weapons plattform support unit that was 8-10F tall, Heavy armour and had more specialized equipment like '' An array of Miniguns, chainguns, rocket launchers or even Plasma weaponry ''or while the T-600/700 series are equiped with an M134 Vulcan Minigun or with a 30-40 watt plasma rifle . The T-400 series was and still is one of Skynnet earliest ground troops before the T-600/700 was brought in by Skynet and it was more considered as a none-humanoid Hunter Killer drone due to IT's inverted leg joints. But compared to the T-600 or 700 series, the T-400 finds itself at very low CPU intelligence quote

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    T-400
    Once the T-400 has locked on a specific target like a Human, it will engage it until that it's kill was confirmed, or when the target has lady luck on it's side it will escape the T-400, due to it's low CPU intelligence ( as i mentioned above ) it doesn't flank or use cover at will, it also will be slow.

    T-600
    The T-600 series is slow but deliberate, it only direct attacks its target. The T-600 has also a low CPU inteligence but not so low as the T-400 series has, that means they cannot flank or take ambush steps.. unless directed.

    T-700
    The T-700 series is a little faster then the T-600 series and has a high CPU intelligence which means that they can flank, take cover and pull back a little and they can ambush if directed to.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have joined during an Event and have come across a group travelling. What action should you take?


    T-400 :
    I would first off all contact an Administrator and notify him that i joined and see the group travelling. Once the Administrator responded to me, he would set me to a place where the other fellow bots are loctated at, and what a supprise they where about to ambush the same group that i saw earlier.

    After some setups, I was ordered to hide behind a building by a T-700 and wait on its command to step out and fight. As the group would passes on their trail the T-700 who told me to hide behind this building gave the command for every unit on that ambush to attack on the group of travlers. I of course came out and would start shooting with the Plasma weaponry, i also was told not to go harsh on them to do some S2M ( Shoot to Miss ) so they might have a chance to escape and hide for a moment to reload on ammo and heal up. After around 1-10 minutes some travlers would evade from the ambush as some where about to get killed, as the other humans fled, a T-800 ordered via radio to retreat to a outpost in that event. The T-800 would order me to guard this specific location to prevent humans to come in that hide out. Suddently a group of Marksman from Tech-Comm started to attack me from an unkown location, I reported the shoots over the radio but it was slighlty to late, before i wanted to send that warning one Marksman took its finnal shot at me, i fell and diactivated myself ( death off course ). After serveral minutes later that outpost got overrun by Tech-comm and destroyed it, It was a clear sign that this event had just ended.

    ( Note : This is my second app, cause of my last app was denied with the reason '' I am on the fence '' )

    You've changed. Accepted.

    How long have you been in SkyNET?
    Since the beginning of this month.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.
    Support drones are not meant for direct engagement or skirmishes, but rather to assist through alternate means. The 500 is a scouting drone meant to relay information back to SkyNET for coordinated attacks and ambushes, as well as harassing isolated groups and disabling specific targets, such as vehicles. The 704 model is meant to act as a long-range support through the use of its phased plasma sniper rifle.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    • Its tactics and methods of attack
    The 500 is not a direct skirmisher but an a scout and forward asset meant to herald the coming of additional reinforcements should an occasion call for it, using its haste and nibble agility to chase down runners as a means to harass, but is not a siege-oriented drone.

    The humanoid 600/700 models, however, are the bulk infantry and manpower (machinepower?) of SkyNET's assault groups and assets, meant to engage in attacks that might be based off the information a T-500 might receive in the field.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.
    • You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?
    The 500 would not take part in an assault on the defenses of a base, but rather would be a forward drone to scout the location and relay tactical information to the rest of SkyNET before the assault. This may include itself being destroyed in an attempt to retrieve further information or only going in for a peek- but not leaving in any interest of survival. If provoked, it would engage through means of indirect attacks using its scattering phased plasma attacks. Once the T-500 has relayed its information or been destroyed, the assault group comprised of 600/700/800s and other siege drones would move in.

    fuck off loser

    Triple post? Triple post.

    People with Tiers II or III can start deploying on the 610, which is just a 600 outfitted with a grenade launcher and occasionally a flamethrower. The flags can be a little much at times, so those of you deploying as them should remember to take it easy and avoid trying to devastate people with the launcher.

    If I start getting reports of people going overboard, I'll just start taking away the flags.

    How long have you been in SkyNET?

    Since February, so a LONG time.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    The thing about support drones and how I see them, is that they are a very specialized group. Most of the times, they have their own seperate roles to tend to, but assist the ground units or the "grunts" of the frontlines. Whether it'd be the job of Reconnasiance like the long range sniper unit 704, or the compact and light 500, taking notes of the environments surrounding their targets, and locations of interests. Or maybe, the heavy support unit (400) armed to the teeth with rocket launchers and plasma rifles. Sending a deadly payload everywhich way, supressing the enemy and taking on the main focus and soaping up most of the damage. Or maybe, the heavy tanks known as siege weapons, the 100 and the 200. Armed with Laser canons, capable of melting and almost disintegrating a whole human figure. Taking the fight to the enemy, stomping and crawling through the fields with weapons of mass destruction, capable of obliterating the most primal of contructions. The point is, these drones all have a specialty, and while that most ground units can, in certain situations or in a general sense, fit into these roles they cannot replicate the results these support drones provide.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    [*]The role it fills

    400 and 500 are different in reference to their durability and speed. However their design remains pratically the same. A 400 may have had a a more larger frame than the 500, with the latter being a more compact and small frame due to the necessity of light weight for speed and for concealment when scouting. A 400 is also capable of head-on combat, able to withstand a formidable amount of damage, like it's successor, the 600. The 500 is a weaker lightweight material, able to take some damage, but ultimately cut down by focus fire. It's not always necessary for a 500 to engage in head to head combat, but will not back down if engaged, or ordered. The most notable difference about the 500 over the 400, is that they travel in packs, most of the time. Alone, they can be easily cut down. But a pack of four against a patrol, could be a force to be reckoned with.

    The 600 over the 700 is a fair battle. The 600 maintains the heavy metal skeleton manufactured along with it, giving it a more durable but slow choice in the battlefield. They are considered the main "grunts" in the field, being the dumbest of the humanoid type generation and the slowest of most, being incapable of maintaining a running or sprinting speed without breaking or snaping their joints/legs. The 700, fixes this issue. Manufactured with a lighter endoskeleton, sacrifices the durability of it's predecessor with the mobility of the 700. However lighter in armor, it still maintains the ability to contain damage, just not to the extent the 600 may provide. In accordance to this, the 700 has been provided a better, smarter CPU. Enabling it the basics of human language, and the use of tactics (however limited, such as covering.). Despite this, the series is considered dumb, compared to it's other successor the 800. But that's a subject out of reach for today.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are patrolling and have found what looks to be an out of bunker group. What do you do?

    Alright so me, a 500 drone, comes out alone over some abandoned ruin only to find while they were trotting about a human group, wading in through their own paths. Their objective is unknown. I would firstly find a more convenient time or place to call for additional units. Depending on what their motives could be, whether it be they decide to stay, or keep moving, I would note of their current status and continue surveilance and gathering any information of interest, and relay it to my brethren terminators. And maybe any important commanding units of SkyNet. If any friendly units were to arrive at the scene, I'd expose myself out of cover and try to round about and pincer them, while they were being handled by the main ground units. Now in a different scenario, were they to find out about my prescense after or before I call for reinforcements and commence their hail of bullet storms, I would retreat to cover, inching up as close to them as I could, while suppressing them with my plasma rifles the best I could. (even though they have semi low wattage, they still hurt.) In this scenario where I was drone idiot and didn't call for backup, I'd do it now while I'm trying to kill the humans, running, jumping, covering or whatever I am currently doing. In this likely process,(both scenarios) I would get hit several times while trying to eliminate the enemy, managing little to no hits directly. Provided the enemy was very well armed, and carrying 5.56mm-7.62mm weaponry. Sooner of later the group would have to retreat, or move on with their objective, considered they have any sort of unknown motive. It is truly up to the players of that group with what they decide to do.

    Thank you for reading my application, hopefully it was up to standards, and I would appreciate it for giving me this chance in the Support Division, thanks!

    How long have you been in SkyNET? Since the start of the iteration.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.
    Support drones provide assistance to operations such as recon, heavy weapons support, and so on. This differs from both the 600 and 700 due to the fact that both the 600 and 700 serve as the main force of SkyNet.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    The 500 is a slimmed down streamlined version of the 400 with lighter weapons and increased movement capabilities used primarily for recon. It's meant to skirmish and operate forward of main forces. It's also able to move quicker than any conventional drone series to date.

    The 600 series is the oldest humanoid terminator in service by SkyNet and still makes up part of its backbone. They're heavily armored with basic CPU functions that lack any self-preservation protocols, simply put they will march forward until they've either completed their objective or been eliminated. Meanwhile, 700 series drones, while also serving as a main component of SkyNet have a better understanding of its adversary. They are much more adaptable with a higher processing capability and are able to take advantage of flanks and cover. They are lighter, more streamlined and not as physically powerful as the 600 series.

    -
    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    The 500's primary tactic is to hit and run, making use of both it's increased speed and agility to quickly engage in a skirmish with a hostile target before breaking off and fleeing.

    [*] The roll it fills
    The 500 is a light reconnaissance unit and skirmisher serving to fill both roles, never directly engaging in combat.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?

    As a 500 I would head out ahead of the main force either on my own or with other 500 series to case my objective. Upon reaching the base I would scan for any hostilities within the area and look for anything that may serve as a hindrance to the main force, environmental or otherwise. Once this was finished, I would report back to the main force and state my findings, afterward, depending on the situation I would continue to patrol around the base and keep it within scannable range, ensuring any and all information was reported back. If my series was not engaged the main assault would begin. My 500 would not take part in the main assault instead remaining on the outskirts of the confrontation and serving as a forward operator to any incoming reinforcements or any dangers that should be reported. If my drone was engaged at any point they would react with suppressive fire and avoidance procedures until objectives were completed or my series was destroyed.

    How long have you been in SkyNET? About two months, I got in at the end of April.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.


    Support drones are not as commonly seen in conflict as 600s and 700s, as they fill a more niche position. Models of support drone such as the 500 are commonly used for recon rather than actual conflict, but can still deal quite a bit of damage if pushed into a fight. Drones such as the 600 skinjob and the 400 have heavier weapons such as grenade launchers and rockets, respectively, for use in actual combat.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:

    The 400 and 500 are fairly similar in looks, the difference stems from the 500 being a lighter model and having less weaponry, gearing them more towards recon. The 500 is not seen as often in conflict, but when they attack, they often swarm in groups of two or three, possibly more, to overpower their enemy. The 600 and 700 models would attack regardless of numbers.


    500s, as they lack heavy weapons or armour, usually adopt hit and run tactics if forced into a fight. They’ll engage, do some damage, and leave before being destroyed themself. All the while reporting enemy locations for other drones to attack.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have ambushed a Tech-Comm patrol of three soldiers, two privates and a sergeant. They armed with a mix of projectile munitions and RPGs, but they have not yet seen you. What do you do?


    The amount of heavy weapons the squad is carrying is more than enough to take down even a cluster of 500 bots, given their weaker armour. A direct assault would just result in destruction, so the bot would issue more care. First things first, the location, number, and arms of the squad would immediately be relayed to SkyNet.


    The 500 would not attack immediately, the squad clearly has some kind of purpose if they’re moving with such heavy weaponry. The 500 would tail the patrol, constantly updating their position and predict where they are moving. After a sufficient prediction of their destination is made, they’d move in for a quick strike, firing from a distance and aiming for whoever is close enough to hit. By the time they are able to load the RPGs or other heavy weapons, it will retreat, only to strike again later, and possibly with more drones to support.

    Thank you for reading! :friendly:

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    Support drones fulfill very specialized roles and tasks. Where 600s and 700s are the main infantry and fighting force, support drones are there to provide well... support, for things standard infantry cannot accomplish. For example, 400s are heavy infantry and fire support, they're used to move the enemy from cover or another fighting position with its explosives and heavy cannons. Whereas the 500 is a light scout drone, often used to gather intel and perform quick hit and run scenarios on vehicles and small groups. In short, they're basically squad specializations.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    [1]Its tactics and methods of attack
    [1]The roll it fills

    Comparing a 500 to 600s and 700s, they're seen as a very light drone. Unlike the standard infantry, 500s are quick and agile. They can be used to send forward prior to an attack to scout out enemy positions and gather intel. They're also suited for quick hit and run type missions, like a moving vehicle convoy where they can get in, do some damage, and quickly pull out - this allows the heavier drones to converge on the damaged convoy to clean up. They're also meant to annoy, shoot quickly at one target, then move to the next. Keep them moving, keep them occupied.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [3]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?

    As a 500 I would head out ahead of the main force either on my own or with other 500 series to case my objective. Upon reaching the base I would scan for any hostilities within the area and look for anything that may serve as a hindrance to the main force, environmental or otherwise. Once this was finished, I would report back to the main force and state my findings, afterward, depending on the situation I would continue to patrol around the base and keep it within scannable range, ensuring any and all information was reported back. If my series was not engaged the main assault would begin. My 500 would not take part in the main assault instead remaining on the outskirts of the confrontation and serving as a forward operator to any incoming reinforcements or any dangers that should be reported. If my drone was engaged at any point they would react with suppressive fire and avoidance procedures until objectives were completed or my series was destroyed.

    Accepted.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700. It supports in the way of a means of assistance just like the HK, it only supports the ground troops in mobilizing and gaining ground on Tech Comm and associates.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack 400 is pure muscle in fire arms, 500 is a lightly armed but faster than the 400 and is smaller to begin the humanoid series of Terminators;. A 600 and 700 is meant for the main army of skynet. They only succeed in shear numbers to outwit and think Tech Comm
    [*]The roll it fills 400: Muscle and heavy. Will be called in when there is a difficult situation
    500: Scout and recon. Will be called in before a mission commences.
    600/700: Backbone and can vary. Will always be called in for any mission

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have ambushed a Tech-Comm patrol of three soldiers, two privates and a sergeant. They armed with a mix of projectile munitions and RPGs, but they have not yet seen you. What do you do?
    I would out flank them by not going into there direct or peripheral vision. I would then fire upon the group when I was flanking. I would try and dodge the first rocket shot and then proceed with the termination.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?
    I would draw there fire by running across the field. If I didn't do that then I would sneak up on the defenses and surprise them by shooting everyone.

    [*]You are patrolling and have found what looks to be an out of bunker group. What do you do?
    I will approach them and see if they have fire arms, if they do then immediate termination, if the only have one person, kill the armed person and kill anyone who runs, if there is no one armed then capture them and bring them to Skynet for branding.

    [*]You have joined during an Event and have come across a group travelling. What action should you take?
    Termination.

    [*]Design your own scenario.
    You come across a reprogrammed terminator that is all alone. What do you do?
    You would do the best to take it out without attracting Tech Comm.

    Denied.

    I know you're new-ish, and I know you're still learning, but I don't think you're ready to play a support drone right now. If you'd like, feel free to PM me on the forums and I'll try to help you garner a better understanding of support drones and help you with anything else you may need.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    Support drones are different from 600's and 700's because of things like their speed, weapons, and specializations when it comes to the field. They don't generally act as a main force like 600's and 700's and instead, tend to complete their own specific jobs. Some do things like recon and scouting out enemy positions, and others like the 704 take out resistance members from long range. Support drones support the main force and complete things that 600's and 700's can't generally do.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    [*]The roll it fills


    500's are very different from 600's and 700's in quite a few ways. They're shaped and designed very differently, and generally used as a reconnaissance drone. 500's are very fast compared to 600's and 700's, and can jump much higher and further distances. Usually 500's won't directly attack as 600's and 700's do, but instead move ahead prior to 600's and 700's. After gathering intel and learning enemy positions, they'll relay the information to command drones in the area and usually 600's and 700's will move into position. If forced to fight, 500's aren't heavily armored so they'll move fast and flank often, as well as use hit and run tactics to make way for more armored drones to finish the job.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have joined during an Event and have come across a group travelling. What action should you take?


    As a 500, after spotting the group travelling, I would first probably get in a good location to watch given the area provided. After scanning the group, I'd relay multiple different things to Skynet about what they're armed with, the amount of humans, and anything else that might be important. After the group continued moving, I'd begin to tail them, and try to find out what the designation of their travel might be. After coming up with one that seems good enough, I'd report it into Skynet with any other important information that could be used to lead to the destruction of the group. Until the humans had eventually reached a point that seemed reasonable for a attack, I'd continue to report in their location and anything else that comes up.

    After reaching a good point for attack, I'd make the report over radio to any 600's or 700's in the area. After the group had seemed off guard or not prepared, and the additional drones had arrived, I'd attempt to flank the group and get around them to start off the attack. Jumping, running, getting in cover, all tactics to take the majority of fire from the distracted humans. While doing this, 600's and 700's would have a opportunity to move in and assault the group. To keep the humans confused and distracted, I'd fire off plasma bolts aimed for them and their cover while the 600's and 700's finish off the attack by moving in and opening fire.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700:

    Support drones fulfill the exact role as their name suggests, where the 600 and up series' maintain the bulk of the force that is usually encountered on the field and the support drones fulfill the requirements depending on the task. The support drones are specialized each in their own respective field, the 500 is the light-weight recon drone that is usually seen running around the field and uncovering enemy patrols, positions and so forth. Though is not shy to engage the enemy when the need arises. The 400, a larger and beefier version of the 500 model is a support drone that brings much welcomed firepower support to the field, utilizing bigger plasma cannons and rockets that can devastate enemy forces while still maintaining a fairly 'small' stature. The 200/100 are the so called 'tanks' of the support drones, their enormous size and overwhelming firepower is more than enough to rout a big force. In short, each drone has it's own field that it specializes in.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    [*]The roll it fills


    The differences between a 500 and it's two next generations are large, not only in their roles but in their very design. The 600/700 models maintain the bulk of the Skynet forces and are the kind of drones you are expected to meet when holding against a Skynet incursion and the kind of drones you'll often see patrolling either alone or in groups, hunting for their prey. The 500 is the go-to drone that fulfills the task of lightning recon and intelligence gathering, it's design allows for high maneuverability, whenever it's for reaching a high point of an area for a proper thermal scan or a quick in and out intelligence gathering. One should not mistaken the 500 for a simple, harmless drone that is merely capable of pinpointing enemies as it boasts an arsenal of plasma cannons that are more than capable of killing. This arsenal combined with their high speed hit-and-run tactics can be quick to devastate a squad of humans.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?


    Fulfilling my role as a 500 drone, it would not take part of the assault itself as it is not it's main function unless the extra firepower is requested. The drone however will be ahead of the forces much before they even set their feet outside of the base, either alone or with another 500 drone, they would scan a route for the force to go through up to the base itself. The drone will initially position itself on a high point or a spot where the defending force could not see it, utilizing it's thermal scanner to get an estimate of the defending force's numbers. Furthermore, the drone will relay back to the bulk of the force any additional information that is deemed useful such as but not limited to; reprogrammed drones, vehicles ground or otherwise, any forward forces that me be trying to intercept the bulk of the force and of course their armaments. Reporting back to the base/outpost thereafter to relay all information properly. During the assault itself the 500 drone will not participate unless directly ordered to do so, it will however remain in the rear of the attacking force, continuing to fulfill it's role of intelligence gathering. Reporting on flanking forces, incoming vehicles and attempts at retreat from the base while also acting as the force's rear guard.

    How long have you been in SkyNET?: About 2 weeks.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.: A support drone normally are fitted with more heavy weapons, Or more powerful ones, They are there to support other drones unlike a 600 and 700 which are standard patrolling bots, Nomrally a 400 or 500 are fitted with Rockets and are larger to present themself as more of a threat, For example, A 704 is fitted with more heavy plasmer weapons and deal much more damage, Yet they are not normally sawn fighting close range as there weapons are mostly stuck to long range unlike a normal 700 which is fitted with auto plasmer weapons which are lower wattage.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following: 400's are much larger then a 600, They also do not take any humonoids, 600's are normally seen patroling around on a road or path, They will ONLY move to there target unlike a 400 which will move close and have more range then a 600, They will also have near to the same taticts as 400's did come out earlier but have much better range, They will mostly use there rockets as a use to support there other allies (Bots or vesties) in a tough situation, Or to get something done. A 600 is a standard bot mainly sticking to a patrol, They normally are just sweeping the area to find any signs of humans, They are normally the ones to engage first and be killed first. Unlike a 600 a 400 will move more around the area checking a little more, It will always be comming if something of skynet is being attacked and is in need of assitance.

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?: Firstly, As a support drone I would move looking more into it, I would try and support Fellow skynet players, I would try and keep with the group supporting on dealing damage to the base, Mostly using plasma weaponry with a few rockets here and there, I would always move foward making sure that the other Bots Or Vesties can get a move in the base if we have pushed far enough, Even with enough damage inflictaed to me I would continue marching trying my hardest to move and support any other bots. The ammount of damage would not change anything to how I would try and help any other bot. The speed may vary if I was the only one, I should always rember, Im a support drone, Not a attack drone like a 600 or 700.

    How long have you been in SkyNET?: 1 Week as a T-600.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    | As a support drone such as a 100-500 you are designed to fill a niche roll that the other drones cannot. That could range from scouting, to bunker busting,. While the 600 + series is made to outright kill humanity through sheer force, the support division of drone is their way to expedite that process through recon and demolitions that humanoid HK's cannot perform without risk.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700

    | In relation to their next series successors the 600, a 500 series Hunter Killer is a machine built for speed, scouting, and recon as a drone made before the 600 it is designed to aid, by calling other drones and machines to locations of human populations or patrols. Where a 600 will blindly fire at a group of heavily armed humans, a 500 will first relay their location and pursue the group. Once a more combat suited drone engaged, the 500 would swoop in, targeting from a flanking position with its weaponry.

    as well as the following: [*]The roll it fills

    | The 500 series is designed to be a road-runner, checking paths and relaying information to SkyNet to make a judgement call if reinforcements are needed. Server side, the 500 is typically seen running its patrol route and engaging similarly to a 600, S2M at a group, and get them too scatter or hide, though if they do go to return fire the 500 will often call for backup. I have also seen / personal been around when 500's leaped onto rooftops that a 600 or 700 cannot reach, so I assume that is another aspect it fills.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.


    [*]You have ambushed a Tech-Comm patrol of three soldiers, two privates and a sergeant. They armed with a mix of projectile munitions and RPGs, but they have not yet seen you. What do you do?

    | The first step is to call in their armaments and location to SkyNet, no doubt they are on their way too fight a heavily armored machine. The second step would be to ask if I should delay them, either due to their target being preoccupied with RP or not ready to end what ever they are doing so soon. Third, if giving the authority my 500 would either emote his arrival if S2RP is needed, or simply fire near them in a S2M / S2K situation. I wouldn't blindly rush the three down with my weapons, but rather give them time to shoot me down, take cover, or retreat. Once I died, I would re spawn and return to patrols, or go assist with what ever event that RPG was likely needed for relaying info as needed / seen.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    - The Support Division Drones that range from 100-500, they are mainly the support element for the T600-800s, to take absolute control in the field, the support division is mainly for range/recon and reporting, though some of the support drones, do have the equipment and firepower to take on a battle, the support element has the ability to go into bunkers/bases and wipe them out, with the response of the 600+s. While the 700s are organizing the 600s, the support element, is trying to help the playing field by assisting in clearing the majority of the attack force, so that the T600s+ dont get over-ran.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:

    - The T-500, Its designed for fast agility/mobility, Its mainly there for flanking and scouting/recon. If a T-500 sees a group of humans, that are well armed, or just generally sees a group of random humans, the T-500 will wait, and report there location to all and any combat drones nearby, while the drone is waiting for backup, the T-500 will sneak behind them, and watch them, when back-up arrives, the T-500 will swiftly attack his foes, in a dashing matter flanking them in all turn point directions, until the unit is destroyed or the humans are dead or captured.

    - The T-600, is rather a blind and fire combat drone, they are the most dumbass units apart of Skynet, when human/enemy locations are directed to drones, they will proceed as they are tasked, not command by the 500s but, aware that the 500s have seen these humans/threats, and have been watching them, the 600s+ will be alerted and they will go to intercept them, the 600s do not care for there own life, and will simply charge the situation with no remorse to there own existence.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    [*]The roll it fills

    - Tactics&Methods of Attack: The T-500s are made for fast movers, throughout the wasteland, as Skynet orders them to. When the T-500 sees a group of targets, the 500 will run in shoot a couple of shots, to scatter the threats, allowing them to hide and get in cover, if the humans return fire, the 500 will hide for brief moment and relay its position and the threat around it, allowing the other Terminators to get the location of the attack. The 500 will then to proceed to try to stretch out the human herd and make them more apart before trying to engage a group. While the group of humans are speaking to each others, the 500 would sometimes be ontop of roof tops, to examine them, while waiting for a response from Skynet.

    T-500 - Seeing how they have not spotted me yet, I would carefully examine the troops with the RPGs. Then I would cause a distraction by either shoving some rocks around or exploding something nearby to create some kind of diversion. Once the TC Patrol is looking the other way, I would start to thin out the numbers by swiftly charging one of them, and eliminating or at least knocking him out. Right after, I would see the troops are getting skeptical and being more aware while the sergeant takes a look a his trooper, while hes looking I would charge his other private trying to kill him or knock him out. Once the sergeant realizes hes the only one left, he would try to use the RPG, then at that moment, I would come up from behind him, and kill him with my weaponary. That I receive with my T-500.

    I joined around the first week the server was up, though I went inactive for a month or two and reapplied a couple weeks ago.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.
    Support drones are in the name, they support the main combat roles. Six hundreds and seven hundreds are cannon fodder while eight hundreds look over them. The support drones are doing stuff from recon as 500's do, to being a siege weapon like 100's, 200's, and the new 450. They arent meant for total cannon fodder to go into battle in large forces, they just support the newer drones in battle.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    500's as I had said earlier are used as recon drones. They are lightly armored (Though not as much as their reaver counterpart) and quite fast. They are scouts, they look over areas and have the self preservation feature unlike a 600 or 700, they can't keep doing recon if they are destroyed. They are still on the lower spectrum of intelligence, not having a wide range of words and they are still ordered around by seven hundreds and above. They are faster then the six and seven hundred but still heavier then them.

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    [*]The roll it fills

    The 500 are usually not the best at attacking, they only overlook areas to scout and self preserve if attacked and heavily damaged. If they are to attack they are usually not a forward attacking force, more of a hit and run as they are lightly armored. 500's of course are fast, so they are firing while running, not standing in one spot. Its tactics are the same as scouts, they report what they see then retreat, maybe getting the attention of a group to keep them away from something and lure them away if told to.


    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?

    As being a 500 i'm a scout, so before the attack takes place i'll go and scout around the base and report in on their defenses, see how many were on the walls and how armed they were. Making sure nothing would be a big problem for the force, but lets say a rocket launcher. I'd report on that, maybe a drone with a sniper would come to take it out right before the attack. Of course still keeping a lookout for a while until the main drone force was ready, reporting on the actions of the base dwellers. As the attack started, i'd do my best to support the main force, mainly staying away from the front and in the safety of the back, firing on them to keep up the heat. If ordered to go to the front and attack, moving from side to side, keeping fire on them until my probable destruction.

    To support the operations and planning of the upper class roles, they have a minimized capacity to function in their ability but serve as niche roles that paired together form a stronger unit. Defacto, creating a new level of ambiance or game play.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    The 500 lacks the planning and abilities to compute scenarios, as a support role they upload feeds of data to higher drones that can use valuable information in the task at hand. Raw data is the key aspect here as they do not act but simply follow the orders of the upper level drone. Also, the key difference as the capacity for engagement, it lacks the strength or muscle to head on brawl with the human force so it uses distance and speed to complete it's defacto missions on recon without truly stepping into the fight whilst the 600 is a proverbial meat shield that charges headfirst into the vanguard.

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack:
    The 500 Serves as a machine that can traverse long distances. Although it lacks the cognitive or planning aspect to draw out complex engagements it serves as Recon for the upper class drones. This is what defines it's status as a support class, as well as, quick maneuvering in and out of engagements with extraction of high value targets or "shock and awe" tactics if planned by an upper series.


    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have ambushed a Tech-Comm patrol of three soldiers, two privates and a sergeant. They armed with a mix of projectile munitions and RPGs, but they have not yet seen you. What do you do?

    Specifically, upload the data to the overseen FCD or upper series drone. Fulfill the role of the support drone and dump the data of their movements, munitions, and important location data to the other drones. If such drones are disabled I would engage, harassing the patrol using speed and tactile movement planning with a balanced level of fire, Attempting to hinder our re-route the pack, most importantly reaching the apex goal of disabling the patrol but working within my limitations. If damage was come to my being, I would advise a standard ROE attack protocol attempting to injure one of the patrons contained within with patrol. If I am able to injure, I can slow the patrol to allow drones to further converge on the position. In the upmost, my presence and speed can be used as a tool to slow progress and allow planning of an FCD to plan for the moments ahead. A time purpose tool but also uploading valuable data in the Skynet communications links.

    3.) Digits: 9824

    4.) How long have you been in SkyNet?: Somewhere around a month and a half.

    5.) Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700: The main role that support drones fill in are self explanatory, they are the backup to the humanoid drone forces when called for, providing great firepower and tanky armor into the mix of battle ahead for them. Their roles are different from the humanoid drones as the humanoid drones roam around the wastes in means of a regular patrol as most of support drones come in when called for assistance, except for the 500 to be used as an actual scout to relay intel and such back to command.

    6.) Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following: Choosing to differentiate the 500 to the 600 and 700, the 500 is more agile and less equipped than the two drones combined hence being SkyNets main scouting drone when needed; The 500 is also known to have actual battle strategies as to flank or outmaneuver their opponents when even engaged or assisting in an assault, as for the 600, being the dumb, dumb, and dumber of SkyNet, going straight on into the fight guns blazing and ready to get destroyed at a moments notice; The 700 can run, also having some knowledge of combat efficiency, does not have the speed of the 500 but being more well-equipped and slightly more smarter than it.
    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack: The 500 is meant to relay intel and information through scouting out a certain sector that it's told to scout about to. They aren't too hard to fight but they will engage and harass the group or single person it spots in means of not wanting to get into a serious firefight due to its lack of armor and weaponry it holds. The scouts agility offers it to flank their combatant and provide light assistance to a drone in need.

    7.) As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?

    SkyNet is currently in the middle of an attack on the current FOB of Tech-Comm, they are taking heavy fire and are in need of heavy arms fire to create a counter-attack. The battle goes on and an FCD requests the support of a 400. The unit eventually arrives to the fight firing off rockets one-by-one towards the main battlements breaking off Tech-Comm forces from the barricades and providing a valuable push into the FOB gates. The heavily armed drone is now ordered to lead the push and push the forces back to the point where they can't make a sustainable counter towards the current push that takes place on the FOB; As it takes the lead an RPG comes flying towards the leg servos of the walking behemoth, creating a direct hit into its legs giving the 400 a 'crippled' status. The unit makes its last shot before dropping down 'face first' into the dirt due to the servos in complete malfuction and failure; The poor drone attempts to get itself up onto its side to provide more fire, but instead getting another missile in its optics, erupting the 400 into a fiery ball of fire.
    The fight goes on without it...

    How long have you been in SkyNET?: Bout a month.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.: A support drone isn't like a 600 or 700, it is fitted with more powerful weapons and is normally there to get info, Scout ahead or help out, Unlike a normal drone which does normal patrols looking for signs of humanoids. They are normally bigger in size and normally un-humanoid versions, If they are Humanoid versions they would be lighter, Quicker, Less armoured yet strong with higher weapons, They are not the rapid fire bots you normally see, They are the ones you'd normally not see but when you do, You will run as fast as you can. They are normally the tanks of the battle and normally soak most of the ammo up which is fired at it. They are the high calibre weapon wielders, The only one which isn't a tank is the 500 which is a scout.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack
    [*] The role it fits.
    A 500 is a scout, Gathers information and scouts ahead and gives the go ahead, They are fast, And are normally smart enough to run away at times, They will run back if they are damaged, Unlike a 600 which is the dumb one, They will walk to their target until they are damaged and shut down or have killed their target, They normally just make sure there is no scav's or TC members running around. The 500 is a scout, The 600 is a patroller. The 500 is normally fitted with plasma weaponry, It normally tries to take a target down quick and fast as the 500 is weaker to make it more nimble, The 600 on the other hand is not, It will try and take one target down, And will continue firing until there target is down, They do not give up in a battle unless they can not move anymore, For instance they fall to the ground but the arms and legs are disabled, The bot would try and move around as much as it can but phiscally cant, The 500 would die very quickly in a combat situation as it is a scout drone meant for scouting.


    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have joined during an Event and have come across a group travelling. What action should you take?

    Firstly, As a scouting drone you would make sure that they are not going to the event area, Yes you should continue moving but it depends if your in a group of Skynet and they open fire or not, If not, You have two options, Open fire and push them to surrender, Or continue moving to the event, The obvious answer is the first one, Ive seen many bots doing this as the event may not be of such importance to them and they are still IC, Like normal Skynet normally engages anything or scouts them tracking there movement. So I would begin to open fire until I've made them surrender, Kill them etc., The other option is to move away, keeping a eye on them and acknowledging them informing other skynet members. If they come and try and take it out then that's fine. My opinion would be to scout them, But it depends on what model I am at the time. If I was a 400 I could easily take them out with a few rockets and get it done quick, But if I was a 500, I'm not the right person to be doing it and should take the scout route watching what they are doing and trying to stay out of sight as much as possible.

    How long have you been in SkyNET?: Basically an entire month. July 24th is when it will be a full one.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    Support drones are just like any other terminator, produced to terminate humanity. The main difference between them and the basic ground units is that these support drones are specialized to do one or few things. 500s bring a good example, they are a quick, light frame designed to hunt and catch out targets that stray too far from the group; or maybe they run around before the fighting even starts to do reconnaissance. Besides them there are many different types, the tank-ish crab variants, the large walkers that bring in massive fire power, and even now new ones such as the widow are being created.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following: As stated above, the main difference between support frames and the basic ground units are what they were specialized for. The 500 are extremely maneuverable bot, capable of getting in and delivering a precise blow before escaping just to repeat the process. While the 500 brings its own unique twist, they also have much weaker armor and are susceptible to weaponry that other drones would shrug off.

    [*]Its tactics and methods of attack

    The 500 abuses its speed in both its tactics and methods of attacks. They will be moving along the battlefield quickly, harassing soldiers, marking weakly defended areas and so on. While it does deliver more tactics than some of it's compatriots, that doesn't mean intelligence is their strong point.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?

    As a five hundred I should be moving around the battlefield, aiming to pick off stragglers and anyone ballsy enough to leave the confines of their defenses. With constant plasma fire, flanking, and support from the rest of the offensive force I should focus on harassing the defenders out of their comfort zone. I wouldn't push extremely hard, waiting for orders to do so and avoiding hard S2K. Eventually I would flop over and die, either due to a barrage of hellfire or on orders from up above. As a four hundred, the situation would be completely different. I would advance steadily with the ground drones, firing off heavy weaponry to try and keep the defenders suppressed thoroughly. I would avoid using rockets near big groups (unless told otherwise) and continue the advance to my inevitable death.

    you seem to note the purpose of each drone although i would have liked you to do be more specific
    keep an open mind to any advice you receive and you should work out any kinks! accepted - scumbo

    How long have you been in SkyNET?

    Since February 20th.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.
    So a 600+ Series is what I would call an MBT, minus the T. It's purpose is to draw fire, or do whatever it's ordered to do specifically, even if so, the T-100, 200, and T-70 accomplish the MBT role more appropriately and effectively. Thing is, the Support Drones enable the regular series to accomplish it's goal, be it drawing fire to the more strong drones, or perhaps providing recon to allow more precise attacks or sabotage. In essential, they're the back-bones to whatever operations SkyNET wants to do, and without them they would fall flat on their face quite often, which would be embarrassing for an omnipotent AI capable of wiping out humanity as we know it.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    For the sake of detail, I'm going to describe the separate qualities that defines each of the four drones, hopefully without saying too much or repeating myself.

    To start, the 400 was designed to be a multi-purpose assault drone, capable of tanking several avenues of damage, ballistics, plasma, HE, AT, of course it's damage soaking abilities being different for each different projectile. The 400 can use rockets, miniguns, GPMGs, HMGs, 40MM, and whatever it's given to accomplish a task it's been assigned. The 400's slow, however, making it an easy target, however as a result, it's great for drawing fire away from more fragile targets.
    It's successor, the 500, was designed with a similar chassis however, much smaller and more compact, lightweight materials, and less weaponry overall. It's own purpose is to, generally, be a hit & run drone, able to chase down vehicles and eliminate them with prejudice, or be a recon drone due to it's small frame and agility. It's a great flanking drone as well, able to zip and zoom in and out of engagements with annoying efficiency. This drone is specifically useful whenever the hostile force is focused on eliminating something like a 200, or a small force of 600s or plus.
    Moving onto the 600 series and beyond, these drones are designed with sneaking closer to the organic menace than previously possible, shifting towards the skinjob models, and being able to enter human buildings without destroying it due to clunky chassis'. The 600 still operates on a regular HK OS, not having the capacity to think intelligent thoughts. 600's are a dying breed, as they've been out-produced by the 700, easy to eliminate by regular bands of people, and are prone to succumbing to weathering elements. Over-all, they're the cannon fodder of SkyNET, other than the Slaves.
    Finally moving onto the SkyNET Bread & Butter, the 700. Easy to produce (using the same materials as the 600 but with better quality and programming), the 700 is the direct improvement to the 600. Less bulky, much more intelligent, maybe not as durable. These guys are given basic prediction knowledge of their opponents, plus preset combat tactics and strategies they can call back to, making a single 700 able to wipe out what a squad of 600's would have a problem with. Of course they're easier to take down with traditional weaponry, however their upgraded precision and situation awareness makes them lethal opponents, and a priority to anyone to eliminate either these drone's support, or these drones entirely before moving onto the easier, less lethal drones.

    [X]The role it fills
    400: General Assault Drone, multi-purpose Termination Machine
    500: Recon / Flanking Drone, Usually sees you before you see it.
    600: Cannon-Fodder primitive mobile mini-gun. Draws fire for others.
    700: Regular "infantry" Units. Can and will command lesser units for efficiency.


    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have ambushed a Tech-Comm patrol of three soldiers, two privates and a sergeant. They armed with a mix of projectile munitions and RPGs, but they have not yet seen you. What do you do?

    In this situation, I will be telling the situation from the perspective of a player controlling a 500.

    The 500 remains on the cliff-side, masked by the twirling winds of the desert sand. The machine scans the grouping, tracking the path they've been taking, uploading live data to the cloud of the group's position and heading, as well as the arsenal they've equipped at the time. The 500 watched the pack, before it receives a transmission from local units to a drone ambush underway. The 500 continues it's recon, watching for changes in path, not moving around as much to avoid being caught in their peripherals. Slowly but surely, the group maneuvers it's way directly into the clutch of the local drone-bush. It receives an order to kick off the ambush with a simple spray of it's plasma weapon, serving as the signal for the rest of the drones to attack. The 500 paces up onto the top of a dune and stares down in to the group of TC, obviously the TC players spot the 500 at this point, and begin alerting one-another, before suddenly the 500 rips open it's weapon, glassing the sand next to them, sending the organics into a frenzy of trying to get of the way. All of a sudden drones begin encroaching from all sides, opening up their firearms in an attempt to eliminate the hostiles from their Earth, the 500 accomplished its goal, serving as reliable intel, and a flanking unit to discombobulate the patrol, not even giving the organics a chance to defend themselves, being entirely outnumbered and outgunned, and the element of surprise taking them over. It's a decisive SkyNET Victory.


    while its rare tech comm suffers a defeat like that, you seem to understand the purpose of the roles above. accepted - scumbo

    How long have you been in SkyNET?: I spent 4 weeks at Skynet, but my computer burned and I was away for a long time, I came back recently and I'm on Skynet 5 days now


    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700.

    As the name implies, these drones are meant to aid Skynet in attacks or defenses, they are generally not seen as much as 600 or 700. These drones will most of the time be seen helping 600 or 700 attacks or defenses.
    let's assume that an attack on BP is going to happen, operating as a 400 its role in this situation is to make way for the other drones, firing large bursts of fire suppressing the humans.


    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:


    ||400||

    The 400's are often used in attacks for being highly dangerous, having great armor and deadly weapons. This type of Drone is generally not seen patrolling around unless it has an order from Skynet. Because it is heavily armored, the T-400 is very slow which ends up harming it a little at times.

    ||500||

    The T-500 is a reconnaissance drone, which sacrifices its armor for speed, is a drone whose focus is not the attack but the recognition of the areas or events that are occurring.
    Also known as "Shoot & Run" they are extremely agile on the battlefield, although they do not play a big role on the battlefield, the T500s will often be seen entering and exiting the battlefield quickly.

    ||600||

    the 600 is a humanoid Drone, known for its low artificial intelligence and its suppression.
    They are drones that are very common everywhere, they have a horrible sight leaving most of the survivors to escape, they are common in attacks and are easily destroyed, although they are slow and heavy, do not substim them they can be deadly indoors .

    ||700||

    These drones are Skynet's main combat units, they have a certain understanding of combat, although they are not entirely intelligent, these drones are able to flank and exit the battlefield in high-risk situations.
    Their main weapons are the plasma ones, and they have a much more armored chassis when compared to the 600.
    but they are still easy to destroy with normal weapons.


    [X]The role it fills

    400:A support drone that is used to make way for the other drones and suppress the members of the resistance

    500: A drone with the role of reconnoitering areas and alerting Skynet to any on-site threats

    600: An extremely slow and ungainly Drone, which has its main role in suppressing resistance.

    700: Assault drones that have the ability to flank and exit the battlefield in high-risk situations can also command old drones



    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You have ambushed a Tech-Comm patrol of three soldiers, two privates and a sergeant. They armed with a mix of projectile munitions and RPGs, but they have not yet seen you. What do you do?


    Playing the role of a T-500, I would watch the group from afar, and send information to Skynet until the reinforcements arrived, I would not attack the group without a direct order from Skynet since my armor is very low.
    Most of the time I would watch the group, and wait for some order to attack or something of the kind, the group seems to have noticed me then I notify Skynet and leave the site until another drone is there to suppress them.
    If I receive the order to attack, I would look for an alternative way to catch them, and when I arrived at the scene I would shoot some of them and then hurry to a safe place,while I continue to notify Skynet about the soldiers.

    you werent super specific on the intelligience of some drones, and some of what you wrote was very redundant, such as "The 400's are often used in attacks for being highly dangerous" - to be clear, intelligience between the drones would be say, a 500 is roughly equal in intelligience to a 600 however a 500 will preserve itself when possible to continue recon, when a t400 is so dumb it needs to be told what to do almost constantly! that aside, you seem to understand the role and niche of the drones while you weren't as good as expressing that knowledge.
    accepted, just listen to advice given to you on the field - scumbo

    How long have you been in SkyNET?: Just about a week now.

    Describe the role Support Drones fill, and how it differs from the ones fulfilled by the 600 and 700:
    Support drones are intended to fill specialized roles, usually being seen deployed under specific conditions, rather than roaming or patrolling, like you'd find a 600 series. Examples being;
    The 400, which is meant as a heavy weapons platform, deployed alongside the 600/700 series in force, or seen defending vital points. The 500, which is meant as a scouting unit or harassing hit-and-run attacker, and a new variant of the 500, called the 500R (Reaver)- intended to be used for psychological attacks, and reducing morale of human targets. The 600/700 series are intended as all-purpose infantry, designed to directly combat human foes in close combat, rather than excelling in one role.

    Describe the differences between a 400 OR 500 and a 600/700 as well as ONE of the following:
    The 600/700 series is designed to directly engage human combatants, and be all-around units, able to deploy in most/all situations. The 500 series lacks heavy armor or weapons, and is meant to be a scouting unit. Due to this lack of armor and firepower, the 500 lacks the versatility that the 600/700 series provide, and should only be used under the right conditions.

    [*]The role it fills
    The 500 is intended to be used as a scouting/recon unit, and its design reflects this. Based on the 400 series design, the 500 lacks the armor and weapons of its bigger cousin, and is extremely agile and fast. The 500 can sprint for extended periods of time, which is useful in finding human targets and relaying the information to other, more powerful units. 500s are usually deployed in small groups of 2-3, as they don't last very long in direct engagements and rely on coordinated attacks for success. A group of 500s will usually be seen harassing small/lightly armed groups, or disabling vehicles.

    As a 400 OR 500, provide a small roleplay example for any one of the following scenarios. Minimum six lines/one paragraph.

    [*]You are going to take part in an assault on the defenses of a base. How would you do so?
    (Writing from TC guard perspective)

    Tech-Com had noticed the scouts earlier in the day. Two-legged fuckers that look like stripped down 400s from a distance. Usually we ignore these things.. but they were out in force this morning, nearly a dozen of 'em. Seeing them standing on the horizon gave me the creeps, it's almost like they were actually watching us instead of your typical "probe and run" we see from them. We sent out a few of our own scouts this morning to check it out, but they'd only say they heard awful screams out there, and wouldn't go out again afterwards.

    Within two hours of their appearance, they started their initial attack. We assumed they'd wait until more units showed up, but these scouts starting harassing our perimeter, pairing off in groups of two and employing quick strafing runs with their scatter guns against our isolated guards. In the ensuing chaos from their harassment tactics, we didn't notice the reinforcements the SkyNET scouts had called in until it was too late. A collection of 400s with an assorted foot force of 600/700 series accompanied them, hellfire barking from their weapons as soon as they were in range. The only thing we could do was run. We tried to load as many vehicles as we could and make a break for it, but the scouts were waiting on our flanks. The last few unlucky vehicles in our convoy were quickly converged on and disabled, having plasma fired at their wheels and engines. We could hear the screams as our drivers gunned it away from camp.

    I keep telling myself there was nothing we could have done to help them.

    (Tried doing something different than I'm used to, let me know if you hate the rp write-up and I'll simplify it or give it from the drones perspective. Cheers!)

    nice job! i liked the creativity you applied here, you were able to do something outside of the box but still show your understanding of each units role. accepted! - scumbo
