I've never dealt with it, but isn't the commander supposed to be "Whatever-One"? Shouldn't it be "Delta One with take care of this personally"?
I'm sorry, are you attempting to reference some sort of canon?
Standard military practices, actually. Guy in charge is "ONE"
Seriously, can you expect Clef to accept ANY other number?
Dr. Clef’s voice responds through the radio in a terse command, “Delta Six. Go.”
Which means he's NOT Six
"Negative, Delta One, Delta Three. Delta Six will handle this one personally."
And then Clef kills her, making HIM Six…
The only thing worse than killing an innocent girl, is getting a medal for doing so.
I'm pretty sure that there shouldn't be a comma there.
I personally interpret it as where the main character (Strelnikov, unless I'm mistaken) pauses mentally. An ellipsis (…) wouldn't quite work, because it would feel like something's being left out, like when a portion is removed from a quote.
Also, considering that Strelnikov doesn't speak the best English, it's entirely possible that he was thinking in English there and made a mental typo. Although if that's the case, it's a bit too good of English.
So what was 784 at the time this story was written? It doesn't seem to make sense now in context.
Not entirely certain myself, and it might have been made up for the story, but there are some hints in the story at http://www.scp-wiki.net/784incident1
I'm kind of a bastard, in that I made it a story that you had to read another set of stories to full appreciate. But yes! This is accurate, and 784 is the correct SCP.

I just looked. The PDF matches the current SCP-784, the nanomachines. i don't see how securing it would involve shooting someone.
How did I miss that? Great story.
One minor note - " SVD Dragunov" is a bit redundant. D already stands for Dragunov.
