Description: SCP-3743 is a school located in a small town in Southern Japan. SCP-3743 resembles a typical Japanese school, which has been modified to contain extra wide corridors and doors, a barracks and a shooting range. The sign at the front gates of SCP-3743 reads 'Tank School: A School for Tanks'. Residing within SCP-3743 are 7 tanks of varying makes designated SCP-3743-A to G.
SCP-3743-A to G appear to go through a typical school day, attending classes, having lunch in the cafeteria, and returning to the barracks at night. The objects are able to maneuver without the need of a driver and are fully capable of human speech, despite lack of an oral cavity and vocal chords needed to do so. The objects are not hostile and enjoy conversing with members of staff and each appear to have their own distinct personalities.

Interviewer: Researcher Barker

<Begin Log>

Barker: Good Evening SCP-3743.

SCP-3743-E: Oh, I would much prefer if you called me TOG II. That is the name her majesty the queen gave me herself you know.

Barker: Very well. So TOG II, what can you tell me about this 'tank school' of yours.

SCP-3743-E: Well, after the war there wasn't much work for many of us surviving tanks you know. Especially with those new fancy models they have these days. I consider myself lucky I wasn't one of the ones who got melted down to use as scrap metal. It was perfectly horrid!! Luckily he found me and brought us here or God forbid I might have been shut up in one of those museums!

Barker: Who do you mean by 'he'?

SCP-3743-E: Ah… he was such a kind fellow. Its all thanks to him that we can move on our own and talk. After he found he brought me here and that's when I met those darling girls.

Barker So you remember what it was like before he changed you?

SCP-3743-E: As if it was yesterday dear. Oh I may be old now but I would give anything to see combat again. If only you humans hadn't signed that peace treaty of yours.

Barker: So, where is he now?

SCP-3743-E: It pains me to say it but he departed us many decades ago. I fear he may have moved on to a better place since then, he was getting on in years you know.

Barker: Indeed. So what can you tell me about the others?

SCP-3743-E Oh my darling girls! I do love them so. So sweet. So innocent. Most of them only came in at the end of the war. Oh we all get along so well at our school. Well… except…

Barker: Except…?

SCP-3743-E: Oh my poor dear sweet IS-2. Why did she have to witness such a devastating loss?They say over 4000 Russian tanks were destroyed in the Battle of Stalingrad. I fear the poor girl will never be the same again.

Barker: Hm… interesting. Well thank you SCP-3743-E. You have been very helpful today.

SCP-3743-E: Oh it was my pleasure, my dear. Do drop by for a visit again soon. The girls do ever so love visitors.
