Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter Thaumiel

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-X instances are to be stationed at a Foundation port near Area-05. Donovan Projectors are to be used to hide the true exterior of each SCP-XXXX-X instance when moving to neutralize and/or contain anomalies. At no time are SCP-XXXX-X instances allowed to launch aircraft for reconnaissance and destruction of SCP-████-1 instances. Aircraft are to be only launched during full breaches of subjects requiring immense fire power to contain or neutralize.

Description: SCP-XXXX designates a event which occurred during the time period between 12/23/2017-5/24/2018. During the aforementioned time period, 8 anomalous warships manifested within the Indian Ocean. The warships are currently designated as SCP-XXXX-1 through 8.

SCP-XXXX-X refers to warships which manifested during the SCP-XXXX event. Each SCP-XXXX-X instance are armed with at least 2 "shotgun" torpedo systems, 20 guns of varying caliber, 4 RAM systems, and 20 VLS cells at varying locations aboard the decks. Each SCP-XXXX-X instance also shows speeds up to 110 knots and 150 knots, and extreme turning speed. SCP-XXXX-X instances also display the anomalous property of not being capable of displacing water. A thorough description of these ships are as follows:

  • SCP-XXXX-1: A fleet carrier which measures an estimated 335.28 meters. The ship has 4 flight decks with 4 catapults each. The hangar shows the capability of "refilling" itself in an unknown manner. Aircraft launched appear to have an infinite amount of fuel. The guns of varying caliber on the jets are capable of aiming at targets out of view with high accuracy. Each jet appears to serve a specialized role despite their capabilities. Bombs and missiles show to be very powerful and create a explosion described to look like a "wormhole".
  • SCP-XXXX-2 to 5: A escort group of destroyers with the task of destroying enemy weaponry and vehicles. They appear to have a single turret with every gun concentrated in a small area, the range of the ships guns appear to make them only suitable for supporting land forces and obliterating targets which get too close. The range of each gun is approximately 10 km. The guns appear to be fully automatic and take approximately 1 hour to refill ammo supplies via SCP-XXXX-1 or SCP-XXXX-8. Their VLS systems appear to be the only way for them to hit long range targets. It appears their armor is very weak and can be possibly the only ships capable of sinking to modern technology.
  • SCP-XXXX-6 and 7: Two cruisers which appear to be designed similar to certain World War I cruisers. They lack torpedo tubes and RAM systems which make them appear to be closer to SCP-XXXX-8 in terms of dealing damage. While they lack torpedoes and RAM systems they appear to be very potent in dealing consistent damage to targets with high accuracy. The shells shot from these cruisers appear to alternate every 10 shots, where a shell containing a unidentified black liquid is used to coat the enemy target heavily until the target slows down completely. After the target is covered in the black liquid, shells which upon explosion resemble lightning strikes appear to constantly hit the enemy until the black liquid coating is gone.
  • SCP-XXXX-8: A battleship which has 3 turrets in a design similar to the HMS Nelson. The guns discharge concentrated rounds of an unknown material resembling purple flames. The material upon contact will begin a process of "consumption" and rapid degradation. Such damage cannot be repaired and portions damaged by such material has to be completely replaced. Smaller guns and turrets appear to fire concentrated electric at targets disabling any electrical currents if present.

The crew members of each ship appear to be non-anomalous humans and are capable of existing within modern society despite their unusual accents and heavily modified English. They are to given a modern English dictionary to speak to Foundation personnel, and they should not leave the SCP-XXXX-X instances they were/are assigned to.

Determining the history of subjects1 and the existence of their extra-dimensional realm is ongoing. See INTERVIEW LOG XXXX-01 for more information.

Discovery/Containment: The appearance of ships at appropriate dates and transport to the Foundation port near Site-05 are as follows.

12/23/2017: SCP-XXXX-1 Appears with in the ocean at top speed cutting through a cargo ship resulting in 20 casualties. The Foundation takes notice and has web crawlers take down footage from survivors and witnesses. Information about the event is suppressed heavily until a amnestic campaign begins.
12/24/2017: Foundation ship SCPS Shy begins communicating with SCP-XXXX-1, Naval Task Force Sigma-1 ("Escort Duty") rendezvous with SCP-XXXX-1 and escort it to the Foundation port near Area-05.
01/01/2018: SCP-XXXX-2 and 3 manifest close to a major population center, SCPS Hidden proceeds to contact SCP-XXXX-2 and 3 giving them proper directions to the port near Area-05.
01/24/2018: SCP-XXXX-4 manifests near SCPS Shy and is spotted quickly, NTF Sigma-1 arrives and applies large scale projectors to hide SCP-XXXX-4.
02/04/2018: SCP-XXXX-5 manifests and engages against an unidentified anomaly, effectively neutralizing it. SCPS Shy sends orders to SCP-XXXX-4 and NTF Sigma-1 to rendezvous and have projectors applied.
02/24/2018: SCP-XXXX-6 manifests and is spotted by NTF Sigma-1, SCP-XXXX-6 is escorted to the Foundation port near Area-05.
03/20/2018: SCP-XXXX-7 manifests close to North Sentinel Island and moves close before locals attack, locals eradicated by SCP-XXXX-7 and the Indian Navy notifies the Foundation.
03/23/2018: SCP-XXXX-7 begins communications with NTF Sigma-1 and is escorted to the Foundation port near Area-05.
04/10/2018: Foundation web crawlers detect SCP-XXXX-X footage and proceed to remove video, procedures put in place to remove any footage and dose amnestics to witnesses are in place.
05/14/2018: Footage and amnestics campaign complete, cover stories released about the deaths resulting from the manifestations.
05/24/2018: SCP-XXXX-8 manifests and is spotted by SCPS Shy, rendezvous with NTF Sigma-1 is ordered.
06/01/2018: All SCP-XXXX-X instances are at the Foundation port near Area-05.

Addendum XXXX-A: On 7/24/18, NTF Omega-0 ("The Police") has been formed from SCP-XXXX-X instances to contain and/or neutralize anomalies or threats which have breached containment or require containment. They are to mobilize immediately in the event of a large scale aquatic breach. Aircraft are to be launched immediately to assist in containing the breach.

Incident Log XXXX-A: On 7/01/18, a breach of nearby Area-██ occurred with multiple subjects set for termination breaching, a message sent to Area-05 stated that the subjects were headed towards a heavily populated city. SCP-XXXX-1A acquires info of the breach and requests permission to launch aircraft to complete termination of subjects which breached. The request is accepted and aircraft sent to locate the entities, aircraft locate the entities and proceed with neutralization of the subjects. Task is completed within 1 hour.
