RPC-903 shortly before returning to its passive state.

Registered Phenomena Code: 903

Object Class: Gamma-Red

Hazard Types: Aggression Hazard, Animated Hazard, Electromagnetic Force Hazard, Aquatic Hazard, Ballistic Hazard

Containment Protocols: At the time of writing, RPC-903 resides on the ocean floor in the Baltic Sea. RPC-903 is to be contained on-site by the Authority Nautical Fleet (ANF). ANF personnel have established a Safe-zone (ANF Outposts), Danger-zone (Observation), and Dead-zone (No Entry), at radii of 50 km, 45 km, and 30 km, respectively. There are to be unmanned solar-powered submersibles in the Deadzone at all times. These submersibles are to be fitted with proper EMP protection, as well as cameras so that RPC-903 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-903 is activated, the Authority is to keep all manned ships at the port until it returns to its passive state. Once RPC-903 returns to the ocean floor, the ANF Vessels must relocate the area and administer Class-A amnestics to all cities bordering the Baltic Sea.

Description: RPC-903 is a dilapidated pre-Dreadnought battleship with no distinguishing emblems or flags. The amount of crewmen aboard RPC-903, or if RPC-903 is maintained by a crew at all, is unknown. RPC-903 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-903 can float on the ocean surface and move at a maximum speed of ██ knots (██ km/hr). RPC-903 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-903’s field of view, which only reaches roughly 30km.

In its passive state, RPC-903 is a non-anomalous shipwreck on the ocean floor. RPC-903 becomes active when it detects a manned air or sea vehicle traveling within its field of view, which is roughly 30 km. First, RPC-903 begins to float upward until it breaks the surface of the water. It will then attempt to ram into its target. If it is unable to ram, RPC-903 will open fire at the vessel until it is incapacitated. Then, RPC-903 will [DATA EXPUNGED] before returning to its passive state. So far, no manned vehicle that has encountered RPC-903 has been recovered the remains of 60 vessels from various time periods have been found within the established boundaries of the Deadzone. Additionally, numerous corpses have been removed from the Deadzone. Forensic analyses of the corpses suggest varying causes of death.
