Special Containment Procedures: With the conclusion of the Theta-Unseelie project, resources formerly allocated to SCP-XXXX-1's study are to be permanently allocated towards its containment.

SCP-XXXX-1 is surrounded by a Faraday Cage in an attempt to attenuate incoming transmissions. To this end, Mobile Task Force Theta-36 ("Swedish Rhapsody")1 has been tasked with sabotaging associated communication stations as they are discovered. As a precautionary measure, a combination of white noise and misleading radio reports are to be transmitted to SCP-XXXX-1 on a constant basis.

Due to the nature and location of SCP-XXXX-2, containment is focused on misdirection and prevention. As such, several Foundation-owned transmission statements have been assigned to monitor SCP-XXXX-2's movements. White noise/misinformation transmissions are to be beamed from all stations where SCP-XXXX-2 is currently visible, with a <25% veracity overlap to those transmitted to SCP-XXXX-1.

Foundation assets are to work with civilian space programs in an attempt to reduce debris within SCP-XXXX-2's flight path, as well as preventing collisions with mundane satellites. As such, the decommissioning of spacecrafts and anomalies within Low Earth Orbit is to be discouraged unless such objects cannot be safely removed from LEO.

Areas targeted by SCP-XXXX-2 are to be sprayed with aerosolized amnestics, and Abnormal Cover Story-10 ("Meteor strike") is to be disseminated to news media. Due to the severity of SCP-XXXX-2's strikes, the Gaslight Protocol is recommended for direct witnesses.

Decryption and analysis of SCP-XXXX's novel transmission systems are Kappa-level priorities.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a kinetic bombardment system developed by Ahnenerbe Obskurakorps for the purpose of aiding the Nazi Germany war effort against the Allied Powers. Records recovered from a 1945 raid of Obskurakorps' Dresden offices suggest its designs were reworked from a previously existing device; however, all records pertaining to such a device appear to have been destroyed.

SCP-XXXX is composed of a spotter device, SCP-XXXX-1, and a satellite, SCP-XXXX-2. SCP-XXXX's components are sapient, and capable of communicating with each other through an instantaneous thaumaturgic signal.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a machine intended to process information relating to geopolitical events, using such information to instruct SCP-XXXX-2 on when to fire. Information is intercepted from nearby radio transmissions, analysed, compared to SCP-XXXX-2's movements, and selectively passed over at SCP-XXXX-1's digression. Additionally, surviving documentation suggests SCP-XXXX-1 controls a binary setting that inflicts a continuous sense of pain in SCP-XXXX-2 while activated.

Retrieved documentation suggests that SCP-XXXX-1 is powered and operated by the consciousness of Dr. Eva Zellweger, a Swiss physician formerly employed by Obskurakorps.

Aftermath of SCP-
XXXX-2's 22/11/1943 strike.

SCP-XXXX-2 is a crude satellite in asynchronous orbit with Earth. When SCP-XXXX-2 was first launched, it had been fitted with an internally adjustable thrust system, self-repair equipment, a magazine containing six tungsten poles, and a vestigial receiver; despite this, SCP-XXXX-2 cannot interpret radio signals.2 As expected of long-term low earth orbit, SCP-XXXX-2 has suffered extensive wear, which it has attempted to repair with surrounding space debris.

As noted above, SCP-XXXX-2 is almost entirely reliant upon SCP-XXXX-1 for guidance; it cannot perceive any object further than 30 meters from its position.

Firing is managed by SCP-XXXX-2, and involves braking ammunition out of orbit. Kinetic energy loss is kept at a minimum through the aerodynamic design of ammunition, resulting in a significant amount of force upon impact.

Movements, communications, and actions are automatically recorded by SCP-XXXX-1; however, recordings are encrypted through a series of nondeterministically-cycled patterns3, with shifts occurring between 38-841 second intervals. To date, only Pattern 19 has been decrypted.


HISTORY

SCP-XXXX's existence was first theorized on 09/11/1943, following a series of atypical strikes against Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Weimar, and Berlin. At the time, it was thought to be the work of an Allied weapons program.

MTF-Theta ("Hole in the Wall") confirmed SCP-XXXX's existence on 06/03/1945, following a raid on Obskurakorps's Dresden offices. Capture was authorized on 04/19/1945, although efforts to secure SCP-XXXX were met with difficulties following French occupation of Stuttgart and interference from the American Supernatural Containment Initiative (ASCI); capture was further complicated by Dr. Zellweger's death sentence following the Nuremberg Trials.
