RPC-051 shortly before returning to its passive state.

Item #: RPC-051

Object Class: Gamma

Containment Protocols: At the time of writing, RPC-051 resides on the ocean floor in the Baltic Sea. RPC-051 is to be contained on-site by the Authority Security Force Naval Division (ASFND). Personnel have established a Safe-zone (ASFND Outposts), Danger-zone (Observation), and Dead-zone (No Entry), at radii of 50km, 45km, and 30km, respectively. There are to be unmanned solar-powered submarines in the Deadzone at all times. These submarines are to be fitted with proper EMP protection, as well as cameras so that RPC-051 may be monitored, and equipment for recovering objects within the Deadzone. All non-Authority aircraft and seafaring vessels are to be redirected from the established Safe-zone. Any manned vessels entering the Dead-zone are to be considered lost. In the event that RPC-051 is activated, the Authority is to keep all manned ships at port until it returns to its passive state. Once RPC-051 returns to the ocean floor, the ASFND naval units must relocate the area and administer Class-A amnestics to all nearby islands.

Description: RPC-051 is a dilapidated pre-Dreadnought battleship with no distinguishing emblems or flags. The amount of crewmen aboard RPC-051, or if RPC-051 is maintained by a crew, is unknown. RPC-051 possesses a variety of armaments, including three two-gun 305mm turrets, twelve 80mm side-cannons (6 on each side), four 20mm anti-air cannons, and four depth charges. Despite multiple breaches in the hull, a broken rudder, and an absence of one of its propellers, RPC-051 can float on the ocean surface and move at a maximum speed of ██ knots (██ km/hr). RPC-051 cannot be tracked through satellite or radar and emits a strong electromagnetic field that can disorient or disable compasses and digital clocks within a 45-kilometer radius. This is much farther than RPC-051’s field of view, which only reaches roughly 30km.

RPC-051 has an active and a passive state. In its passive state, RPC-051 is a non-anomalous shipwreck on the ocean floor. RPC-051 becomes active when it detects a manned air or sea vehicle travelling within its field of view, which is roughly 30km. First, RPC-051 begins to float upward until it breaks the surface of the water. It then proceeds to fire at the vessel. If the target is incapacitated, RPC-051 will [DATA EXPUNGED] before returning to its passive state. So far, no manned vehicle that has encountered RPC-051 has been recovered the remains of 60 vessels from various time periods have been found within the established boundaries of the Deadzone. Additionally, numerous skeletal remains have been removed from the Deadzone. Forensic analyses of the corpses suggest varying causes of death.
