Item #: SCP-3411

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Due to the nature of SCP-3411 it's unlikely that with today's technology that SCP-3411 will be moved from it's current location in the ███ desert, because of this a fence has been constructed around SCP-3411 and is 1.3 meters away from SCP-3411's active range. 4 watchtowers, each standing at 9.6 meters high and located 2.3 meters from the fence surrounding SCP-3411, they are used observe SCP-3411 and have snipers shoot trespassers.

Any personnel with level 3 security clearance and above are allowed to view SCP-3411 at anytime. In the event that SCP-3411's targeting range is to grow (see incident SCP-3411-1) all personnel within the containment area are to be removed and the materials required to make a replacement fence be ready.

In the event of a containment breach at least 3 mtf officers armed with anti tank weapons be sent to immobilize SCP-3411 (see incident 3411-2) and a new containment area be constructed around it.

Description: SCP-3411 is a M1A2 Abrams tank that's armor is heavily damaged, halon firefighting system is believed to be offline, the 120mm XM256 Smooth Bore Cannon is fully functional, 7.62 M240 coaxial Machine gun and 50 cal M2 Machine gun are functional, targeting system is believed to be fully operational, and both treads are missing.

SCP-3411 is a M1A2 Abrams tank that's armor is heavily damaged on the right side, halon firefighting system is believed to be online, the 120mm XM256 Smooth Bore Cannon is fully functional, 7.62 M240 coaxial Machine gun appears to be unable to fire, 50 cal M2 Machine gun is fully functional, targeting system is believed to be fully operational, and the left tread is broken. SCP-3411 appears to be able to regrow parts by slowly absorbing metal in it's active range.

Whenever a subject gets with in 4 meters of SCP-3411, and has some sort of weapon on it, will cause SCP-3411 to shoot at the subject until they shows no signs of life even when it has left the active range of SCP-3411, but if the subject is unarmed they will be able to get additional 3 meters closer to SCP-3411 before being shot at. If the subject is wearing the uniform of a US soldier then SCP-3411 will ignore the subject no matter how close they get.

Incident 3411-1:
Dr. █████ suggested that markers be placed at the edge of SCP-3411's active range so that no one be in danger of accidental walking into it. This was approved but while placing the markers Dr. █████ was shot dead by SCP-3411 due to it sensing the pocket knife Dr. █████ had on him. It's theorized that before placing the markers SCP-3411's active range grew, due to this no attempt to do anything like this again is allowed.

Incident 3411-2:
After several months of being in containment SCP-3411 "regenerated" it's treads and was successful in destroying most of the containment area and killing 5 of the onsite personnel before being immobilized by several mtf officers armed with anti tank machine guns. It was discovered that 2 meters below SCP-3411 was an iron deposit it absorbed and used to become mobile.
