Recovered report of Item written in 1944

Usage
Item is capable of destroying or severely damaging enemy ship fleets when properly directed. Personnel interacting with specimens are required to be able to speak fluent Japanese and be dressed with a WWII Japanese Army uniform displaying a rank of army lieutenant or higher. Item could be only deployed into a large source of saline water, but possesses the capability of damaging structures and killing enemy personnel when near shore. All personnel are advised to remain as far as possible away from shark specimens. Normally all Item specimens are to be put into separate aquarium containers with the minimum size of 8.5 m x 8.5 m x 4 m filled with salt water. All Item specimens must be fed with at least 20 kilograms of raw mollusks or deep-sea squids every 4 weeks.

During the time period of mating season, female and male specimens are to be categorized in pairs and be placed in tanks. Laid egg sacs should be taken care of until birth of pup.

As a reminder, a specific order must be directed to Item specimens prior to deployment.

Report
Item includes 28 specimens of an anomalous species belonging to the Mitsukurina genus. Item originated as the Mitsukurina owstoni species but later became a separate anomalous species after a genetic modification project (See Document-Shark Unit Epilson) performed by scientists from the Japanese government during 1944. Specimens are currently sapient, and show a basic understanding of the Japanese language. Specimens will display hostility towards any subject that it perceives as a supporter of the Allied Forces in World War II. All Item specimens will respond to commands directed by a lieutenant or higher ranked WWII Japanese military official and support anyone who they view as allies with the Japanese Empire in World War II, albeit they have a tendency to judge subjects' identity by their appearance.

All Item specimens possess a long, penetrative snout mainly composed out of manganese-steel alloy enveloped with skin tissue. Specimens will utilize its snout to impale individual enemy subjects. Specimens are capable of detecting enemy ships within a 10 kilometer radius. If a specimen encounters an enemy ship, it will promptly approach the ship and attempt to attach itself to the ship by piercing its bottom with the shark's snout. When close to a ship or enemies on a nearby shore Item specimens will proceed to do what it appears to be inflating themselves. After approximately 10 seconds, the specimens will release an explosion with the force roughly equivalent with 4.5 kilograms of detonated Trinitrotoluene (TNT). Due to the rather undetectable size of the Item, specimens have proven effective weapons for bringing destruction to enemy ships. Specimens that are trapped on land will also detonate when they detect threats, which prevented them from ever being studied by enemies. As specimens tend to display hostility towards a large amount of subjects, a direct order specifying targets must be given before they are deployed for operation to reduce collateral damage.

Despite being aggressive towards natural preys of specimens, specimens have been extremely passive to its own kind.
