SCP-4473

Item #: SCP-4473

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: All warheads within SCP-4473 is to be disarmed. To accomplish this, triweekly explorations are allowed in order to locate specific warhead storage chambers and determine the nature of the warheads stored within. Exploration teams, assembled from several paradisciplines departments, are to return with a detailed description of the explored chamber, and payloads stored within, from which a disarming protocol is to be elaborated and carried out.

Site-4220-4473 has been constructed for testing and disarming of recovered payloads.

Under Ethics Committee orders, no further testing with SCP-4473 warheads is allowed, unless it us conducted for one or both of the following;

  • In order to disarm other similar warheads.
  • For development of countermeasures, should similar weaponry be deployed in the future.

An Ethics Committee representative is directed to oversee the operation of Site-4220-4473 at all times. This position is currently occupied by committee member Borja Dowell.


Description: SCP-4473 is a partly-underground facility, located near Cerros de la Vera, Uruguay, shaped like a rectangle, measuring 5km x 10km, of unknown depth.1 SCP-4473 consists of four sections, designated SCP-4473-1 to -4.

  • SCP-4473-1 consists of 50 individual missile silos, located in the north section of SCP-4473, each measuring 45m deep and 17m in diameter. A gear mechanism is placed beneath each silo, in order to raise an armed ICBM to firing position. A secondary mechanism locks all of these in place. All of the lock mechanisms are connected to a central unlocked silo, designated SCP-4474-Prime. It is believed that if SCP-4473-Prime fires, all other silos will be unlocked, and presumably, their fire mechanisms triggered. 50 assembly lines connect to each silo, presumably assembling, arming, and placing a functional ICBM within the silos (See SCP-4474-3 and -4.)
  • SCP-4473-2 consists of 195 offices, each individually decorated like the presidential office of an United Nations member or observer. At every desk, a pair of mechanical brass hands are mounted via pneumatic tubing. Each right hand has a pen, fed by a pneumatic tube extending from the hand. These hands used to continually write on a mimicry of peace treaties, all consistent with official documentation from each represented country, prior to the events described in Addendum 1 - Discovery. Each table continually printed additional templates, having a limited supply of at least 1200 sheets per table. The necessary ink was provided by additional pneumatic tubing, from an undisclosed source.
  • SCP-4473-3 is a massive storage unit, of unknown depth, that takes the majority of the size of SCP-4473. SCP-4473-3 is subdivided in interconnected 100m x 50m rooms, housing variable amounts of unarmed warheads. Each floor houses a different kind of warhead, seemingly progressing in lethality the deeper the room is.
  • SCP-4473-4 refers to another similar storage unit located right below SCP-4473-1. SCP-4473-4 houses an unknown amount of functional uniquely-designed ICBMs, each lacking a warhead. These missiles are disposed vertically, in 50 separate lines, held together by chains. Should SCP-4473 be activated, it is presumed that the assembly lines below SCP-4473-1 would arm these ICBMs with warheads taken from SCP-4463-3.
