Spider Tanks are roughly two-and-a-half times the height of a human being. They are quadrapedal ground units of a similar design to the HK-Centurion. Spider Tanks have two arms, each equipped with a forward-facing and rear-facing plasma cannon.
A Spider Tank is stored in the belly of an HK-Aerial for transportation.
During the raid on Los Angeles, when John Connor and Kyle Reese rushed to enter Skynet's facility that housed Time Displacement Equipment, a falling HK-Aerial dropped a Spider Tank in front of them. After a brief battle, Skynet Core in Colorado was destroyed and all the machines were shut down, including the Spider Tank.
- An early concept of the HK-Aerial deploying the Spider Tank depicts the Spider Tank being the front portion of the HK-Aerial.
- Another early concept art depicted the Spider Tank as being similar to the T-1.
