Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be anchored at the Site-25 harbor in ██████, France. The former 839-man crew of SCP-XXXX is to be housed in standard humanoid containment cells and designated as SCP-XXXX-X. As of █/█/2017, only 826 of the original 839 remain alive. To prevent the spread of disease to the subjects, all personnel who come into contact with instances of SCP-XXXX-X are to go under stringent decontamination protocols before contact and after contact.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 127.6 meter long Deutschland-class battleship with a top speed of 18 knots. Due to testimonies from both the former crew of SCP-XXXX and documents retrieved from SCP-XXXX, it is believed that SCP-XXXX is the SMS Pommern, a battleship used before and during World War I and which was reportedly sunk during the Battle of Jutland on 1 June, 1916.

Despite being a pre-dreadnought, SCP-XXXX is a remarkable defensive construct. When damage is done to SCP-XXXX's exterior armor, it is able to, with relative quickness, repair itself. Testing done on SCP-XXXX reveals that the severity of the damage affects how quickly SCP-XXXX is able to repair itself.

The former crew of SCP-XXXX has overall very limited knowledge of SCP-XXXX's capabilities and has a large majority that doesn't know of SCP-XXXX's capabilities. However, SCP-XXXX-1, formerly Captain Friedrich von Steuben, has extensive knowledge of SCP-XXXX's capabilities through knowledge obtained from operating the ship and from debriefings from the German Admiral of the High Seas Fleet at the time he commanded SCP-XXXX in 1916.

The following short debriefing from Admiral Reinhard Scheer to SCP-XXXX-1 forms the basis of current theories on SCP-XXXX's regenerative capabilities and its origins.

To Captain Friedrich von Steuben, SMS Pommern

As of now you are in control of the SMS Pommern until further notice. Below is attached the necessary information required to run the Pommern successfully. Failure is not an option.

1. The Pommern is effectively indestructible. Through the use of the research done by the Imperial Naval Office, we have devised a way to make a ship near indestructible. Unfortunately, due to the research being relatively new and relatively untested, we have unfortunately been unable to apply this same research to the whole of the High Seas Fleet. The Pommern is also able to preserve human bodies alive as a byproduct of its regenerative capabilities. Please refer to further documents provided by the Imperial Naval Office for clarification.

2. The Pommern's capabilities are to be kept strictly secret. The content of our naval program is to be kept strictly secret. Our naval buildup has already struck a cord with England, and we can not afford this information to be leaked out as it could potentially cause further strife. Furthermore, the Pommern's crew must be maintained at a high level of secrecy.

Admiral Reinhard Scheer, Commander of the High Seas Fleet
