as EMP is being widley discussed in this thread it would help if it was discussed factually .

to quote from WIKI :


Radiation hardening is the act of making electronic components and systems resistant to damage or malfunctions caused by ionizing radiation (particle radiation and high-energy electromagnetic radiation)


note the higlighted word


radiation hardening is NOT blanket imunity to EVERYTHING

but resistance to a givenn magnitude of " attack " at a given range

just like every other passive protection system

just like physical armour plate - there are degrees of radiation hardening - and the protection they afford

infact physical armour plate is a good analogy - as its very easy to protect something against the blast and damage from an offenive infantry hand grenade [ like the briitish L109A1 ] thats landed 10m away - but armouring a system to survive the detonation of a MOAB bomb [ gbu 43b ] at 10 m is nigh imposible with current armour on a mobile system

and its the same with radiation hardening - the more energy the EMP attack has and the closer it is to the target - the less effective any given level of radiation hardening will be

EMP is not a wunder waffen - nor is it possible with current tech to make a mobile sistem 100% immune

but hey - carry on - i wouldnt want mere facts to stifle the thread
