In the early days, every kid grew up throwing a baseball, and so the grenade was desgined accordingly. Now, every kid grows up playing videogames, and thus the weapons systems on new military vehicles are designed accordingly
But an EMP blast over a possible base could fry every chip in their electronics, leaving the equitment up for grabs...
The U.S. does have an EMP device. So it is hard to say if any one else does. And I think all the people creating the weapon systems are concerned about is how much proffit they can make on it.
I belive its the Gov that flips the bill for desighning and creating the weapon systems. But because of that all the Corp. has to do is make the bill as large as possible. Hence the $700 ash tray, $2000 coffee pot, ect.... I do feel the enginers will make things as good as possible, but some where past the enginer some one is only looking at how much they can push the bill up.

I doubt any hacker is breaking into a system devised by the Pentagon.
lol, braking into the pentagons computer systems is unbelievably easy, and getting access to there phone systems with the legendary Crunch wistle can be done in seconds by a ten year old. No system is completely secure, yet.
