The term HK-Aerial, Aerial HK,[1] or Flying HK,[2] refers to a wide variety of Skynet's large, airborne, VTOL-capable Non-Humanoid Hunter Killers. Featuring a devastating array of under-slung and wing-mounted lasers, missiles and plasma cannons, the HK-Aerial is fearsome and terrifying to behold.

HK-Aerials can be brought down by shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles.[5]

Known variantsEdit

There are light raiders seen patrolling the wastelands of the Future War,[7][3] massive and heavily-armed ground support craft,[8] as well as troop transport variants[9] which on occasion have been captured and subverted for use by the Resistance.[10][11]The HK-Aerial has been deployed in many configurations by both Skynet and the Soviet Artificial Intelligence MIR.[9]

In the Salvation timeline, an HK-Aerial is able to carry T-700 Terminators onboard,[12] while a Transport is capable of storing two HK-Aerials.
