Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The existence of SCP-XXXX has been removed from all records within the Russian military and Leningrad Kirov Plant. SCP-XXXX itself is stored within Site-

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 2B1 Oka self-propelled artillery gun manufactured by the Leningrad Kirov Plant for use by the Soviet military during the Cold War. SCP-XXXX is in remarkably good condition for its age and displays none of the mechanical faults common to the model.

SCP-XXXX's primary anomalous effect is activated as soon as a person attempts to fire its main weapon without a shell loaded into the breach. Upon "firing", a cylindrical gateway opens within the main weapon, and the Hume constant1 of the cylindrical space directly in front of the barrel becomes significantly lower (usually around 0.75 Humes). The range of this effect is approximately 1.5 kilometers, however deviations of as much as 100 meters from this have been observed.

The effect of this "Humic leeching" results in people observing any people or objects within the line of fire being able to exert their will upon them, effectively becoming low level situational reality benders. The utility of this effect will not be investigated at this time.

The gateway within the main barrel of SCP-XXXX connects to an area outside of baseline reality, the exact nature of which has yet to be determined (see Addendum XXXX/A). This area has been designated SCP-XXXX-1.

Additionally, if SCP-XXXX's primary effect is activated more than once every ten minutes, semi-sentient spectral entities will start to emerge at an exponential rate from within SCP-XXXX. Due to the low Hume nature of SCP-XXXX-1, these entities (hereafter referred to as SCP-XXXX-2) are usually unable to affect their surroundings, and dissipate rapidly.

Addendum XXXX/A: Exploration of SCP-XXXX-1



NOTE: In order to conduct this exploration, an automated drone was inserted into the barrel of SCP-XXXX, and allowed to fall through the aperture to SCP-XXXX-1. SCP-XXXX was then activated every ten minutes to transfer data back.
