Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is secured at aircraft hangar II (Repurposed as of ██/██/████) at Site 23. Access to hangar II is restricted to Level 2 personnel and requires prior authorization from the senior researcher currently overseeing SCP-XXXX containment. Testing must be carried out exclusively by D-class personnel while oriented by guards, agents and researchers trained in the containment of grade II infohazards and debriefed on SCP-XXXX’s nature.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an infohazard that affects any human being to become aware of the exact numerical value of one or more of SCP-XXXX-1’s physical measurements, including weight, width, height, length, caliber, [REDACTED]1. SCP-XXXX-1 is a firearm of unusually high dimensions2 bearing no identifying marks and unique design, although several similarities to the Heckler & Koch G36 (Specifically the G36C variant) assault rifle have been noted by personnel tasked to analyze it. SCP-XXXX-1 displays signs of wear consistent with prolonged use but, since acquisition during [REDACTED], it has proven to be inoperable due to damage sustained by several of its inner parts, which display no anomalous effects upon dissemble. No ammunition was found alongside SCP-XXXX-1.

Those affected by SCP-XXXX will immediately undergo a poorly understood change in the manner by which they perceive SCP-XXXX-1 after contagion. Among all █ tests conducted to date, █ test subjects replied to all questions regarding SCP-XXXX-1 as if they were already familiar with it at some degree prior to contagion, often mentioning and describing in detail non-existent broadcasts in known media depicting mechanical humanoid constructs, referred to by the abbreviation “TSF”, carrying weapons similar to SCP-XXXX-1 during military operations, in attempt to prove such statements. █ test subjects also reported to have personally came into contact with the aforementioned constructs. As of test █, exposure of D-class personnel for the purpose of interrogation has been discontinued, as no further relevant information could be acquired See Interview Log XXXX-██.

Interview Log XXXX-██

Interviewed: D-55796

Interviewer: Researcher █████████

Foreword: D-55796, test subject ██, was supplied with a written report of all data gathered about SCP-XXXX-1’s specifications during previous tests with the objective of gauging whether or not SCP-XXXX’s effects were related to the amount of information provided to the victim during exposure. The following interview happened twenty minutes after D-55796 finished reading the abovementioned report.

<Begin Log>

█████████: D-55796, I’d like to ask you some questions.

D-55796: Sure. Can’t say that I remember much of those numbers, though.

█████████: What can you tell me about SCP-XXXX-1?

D-55796: (Pause) XXXX-1? Oh, the TSF's gun. Well, what do you want to know? They kill alphas3 with them, I guess.

█████████: Alphas?

D-55796: Hum, yeah. The bug-squid things, doctor. Too fast for the tanks, and we can’t fly after what they did to the sky, right?

█████████: (Pause) I see. Tell me what else you know about these creatures.

D-55796: Same as everybody else! I mean, it was all over the news: Came from nowhere and started killing people in some Asian country. Taiwan, I think.

█████████: Is that all? You seem agitated, D-55796.

D-55796: Look, why are you asking me all of this? You guys from the government know all about this stuff already. I didn’t steal any shady military secret, if that’s what you want to know.

█████████: You’re not under suspicion, D-55796. A guard will escort you back to your cell, and we’ll resume this interview tomorrow.

D-55796: Whatever you say, doctor. Mind if I ask something first?

█████████: (Pause) I may not be able to answer, D-55796. I’ll do what I can, provided you continue to cooperate with us.

D-55796: Fine, fine. I just wanted to know how long till I can get out of here, and why won’t you give those poor girls some decent clothing. It’s bad enough you’re making them fight inside those things, you know.

█████████: (Pause) I’m not sure, on both accounts.

<End Log>

Closing Statement: D-55796’s termination has been delayed until the interview series scheduled to be carried out from ██/██/████ to ██/██/████ has been completed. Exposure of two D-class personnel to SCP-XXXX under similar conditions to those of D-55796 has been approved. Despite the amount of information gathered since this interview, no evidence that D-55796’s claims may be true in any regard has been acquired during investigations in [REDACTED], Taiwan, [REDACTED], South Korea or [REDACTED], Japan.
