You might be able to mesh two T300s, but 400m might be the edge of range, without adding additional external antennas..
Mesh would require a ZoneDirector.  Consider also two P300, point to multi-point bridges, which can easily span your distance.

The exact distance is about 290 m according to " google map " .
My supplier confirmed me the feasibility without ZoneDirector with the new version of T300 ' s

Yes, Unleashed T300s do support Mesh now, and 300m is typically maximum distance for Mesh without external antennas. 
With good RF, you may be able to connect two Unleashed T300s at 300m by mesh.

Good,
Actually the firmware version is
"Software Version: 100.0.0.0.127"
Can I configure Mesh with this version ?
Can you give me a link to a user manuel to configure it ?

No, that version is ZoneFlex standalone AP image, from a 901-xxx ordering part number, and does not do mesh without a ZoneDirector.
Tell your Supplier, that you need Unleashed 9U1-xxx ordering part number APs.

I feel like this might be really pushing the T300s to their limit depending on the bandwidth requirement for the link... I only cover around a 200m area and even with clear line of sight around the edges you can start seeing throughput drop due to lower RSSI noticeably even with 80MHz channels and good RF.

Perhaps a T301n or T301s might make this more realistic, but the P300 pair is really designed for this job and appears to be priced attractively relative to buying two T301n's.

Rostom, out of curiosity, why the insistence on using the T300 specifically for this job?

+1 for the P300. What you are describing is a P-P link not a mesh network.

It Worked fine, for 230 m of distance.
The P300 Model is not allowed actually in our country ( We will see with our supplier to get P300 in the futur projects).
Thank you very much
