Item #: SCP-3705

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Locations with high probabilities of producing or uncovering SCP-3705 instances are to be monitored closely by implanted Foundation Archaeologists and Paleontologists. Should an SCP-3705 instance be uncovered, non-Foundation personnel present on site are to be treated with class A amnestics, and disinformation regarding recent discoveries disseminated in the event of further questioning.

SCP-3705 instances are to be moved to secure engineering Sites 212A or B depending on size and condition. Functional instances are to be moved to 212A for potential reactivation and reverse engineering. Non-functional instances are to be moved to 212B for proper thaumaturgic disposal, and destruction.

Site 212A

Site 212A is a facility located on the Dunnethead Pennisula southeast of the Orkney islands, with a perimeter area of 3 km along the north and south edges, and 4 km along the east and west edges, or 12 km2 total area. The compound consists of 10 large scale engineering labs, composed of 10 250 m2 rectangular buildings, and three 500 m2 vehicle storage warehouses along the coastline, with open access to coastal waters for functional testing of reactivated SCP-3705 instances. A permanent staff of 100 mechanical, thaumaturgic, and chemical engineers are housed and retained on site. 859 technical and mechanical staff and aides are also housed on site. 68 security personnel and MTF-Sigma 32 "Recovery Wizards" are also housed on site.

The area directly encompassing 212A has been given status as a "No fly" zone by the government of the UK. This status extends into the surrounding oceanic waters in a 2 km radius.

Site 212B

Site 212B is a facility located on the Western coast of Hoy Island. Site 212B consists of a 50 m x 20 m compound capable of housing and carrying out the destruction of non-functional thaumaturgic items. Site 212B has a permanent security staff of 15, and 5 thaumaturgic demolition experts. Staff are housed on site. Remnants of thaumaturgic items are transported form 212B to 212A for repair and recycling of materials. Destruction of nonfunctional SCP-3705 instances on site follows standard disposal and safety protocols.

Description: SCP-3705 are a large number of recovered and potentially undiscovered vehicles with unique properties, several universal common factors, and varying functional attributes. Each SCP-3705 instance is capable of traversing aquatic environments, either as a submersible, or sea floor based all terrain vehicle. Each vehicle resembles known species of ocean fauna, though significant deviations from these animal species have been observed in many recovered instances, as is described in Table T-3705-01. Individual vehicles are primarily composed of organo-metallic polymers, with the oldest variants having been carved from stone.

SCP-3705 instances are diverse in both appearance and specific function, ranging from automated collection vehicles less than 3 m in length, designed to collect food, minerals, and other materials; to large scale assault vessels more than 200 m in length. Each SCP-3705 instance is powered via a spatial distortion, contained within a crystalline chamber composed of corundum, which emits high energy material bearing marked similarity to that found in SCP-3703. The size of both the crystal and the distortion appears to vary based on the size of the vehicle; however, recovered non-functional SCP-3705 instances are noted to have had the crystal shattered, or removed in its entirety.

When in an active state, all SCP-3705 instances are described as emitting a dull "humming" noise. Active SCP-3705 instances will possess carved channels where luminescence will "flow" across their exterior surfaces, forming patterns, artistic depictions of the vehicles history, and proto-nordic runic script containing instructions on how to properly operate and maintain each vehicle. Manually piloted SCP-3705 instances are more likely to have detailed markings, carved by the former operator, which appear to serve a statistical role, similar to the manner in which pilots during World Wars 1 and 2 would track enemy kills by painting flags onto their vehicles, in the form of three toe'd hoofprints.

Table T-3705-01

The following table contains selected entries describing the various instances of SCP-3705. Vehicles are assigned designations based on their type and relative functionality compared to other SCP-3705 instances rather than by order in which they were discovered. Prior documentation included designations based on order of discovery, these designations have been changed databasewide in order to avoid confusion.
