Item #: SCP-XXXX (Renaissance War Machine)

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in the 70x70 meter garage at all times surrounded by armed guards any civilian attempting to approach Site 262 is to be immediately rerouted back to Immenstaad.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a wooden construct of the Da Vinci battle tank from the Renaissance-era. SCP-XXXX is made of wood analysis reveals that the material seems to be an unknown metal alloy. Analysis of the material that composes approximately 60~70% of SCP-XXXX's mass reveals that, contrary to what is suggested by its outward appearance, said material is in fact a previously unknown metal. Upon closer inspection a mysterious symbol was found within SCP-XXXX itself. Every detail of SCP-XXXX matches up to Da Vinci's schematics right down to the configuration. SCP-XXXX's anomalous property occurs when SCP-XXXX is placed under attack. When under attack SCP-XXXX will tranform into a tank that is suited for the combat scenario that it is confronted with, meaning that SCP-XXXX shows a small amount of sentience.

Recovery log: SCP-XXXX was recovered by Armed Task Force Omega-13 “Green Devils” after reports of explosions outside of Venice city limits on February 14, 2015. Local residents were informed that a military training drill was going on near-by and asked to return to their homes. Immediately afterwards ATF Omega-13 surrounded and proceeded to engage SCP-XXXX with Javelin Anti-Tank missiles. SCP-XXXX ceased operation after a strike from a Javelin Missile fired by Agent Kirkland. After the brief engagement Armed Task Force Omega-13 Scoured the area outside Venice and discovered a hatch leading to an unknown facility upon further investigation the facility looked as if someone had left in a hurry. Three hours later, SCP-XXXX was transferred via rail to Site-262. En route the “Green Devils” were engaged by an unknown force armed with assault rifles and anti-tank charges (see Incident report XXXX-A). SCP-XXXX shifted form into an E-100 Super Heavy Tank and was used to engage the unknown aggressors. Upon its arrival at Site 262 SCP-XXXX was driven in its E-100 form into its current holding area outside of Immenstaad, Germany which is under the guise of a small military outpost.

Addendum: So far depending on circumstances SCP-XXXX has transformed into multiple forms all of which being tanks. The known transformations are all experimental tanks largely from World War II era Germany. They are as follows:
• E-100
• E-75
• Panzer VIII Maus
• Panzer VII Lowe
• Jagdpanzer E-100
• E-50 and E-50 Ausf M.
• Panther II
• GW Panther Self-Propelled Gun
• GW Tiger SPG
• GW Type E SPG
• VK4502A
• VK4502P
It would be wise to note that the armored vehicles in question were either blueprints or none except a couple were designed and built. Several experimental designs from the United States, United Kingdom, and Former Soviet Union were also among the transformations.
