On January 24, the authoritative American analytical resource The Washington Free Beacon in the article
“China, Russia Building Super-EMP Bombs
for‘ Blackout Warfare ’”
spoke in some detail about the unique Russian weapons. Moreover, he did not use “expert opinions” or
“anonymous sources” in certain circles, as is often the case when publishing inventions. Its source is a Pentagon report to Congress, released a
few days ago.
One important nuance: the report was prepared for several years and was completed in 2017, but it was not publicly available, because it contained a
lot of top-secret information. In the Pentagon was a long work on their removal, writes Free Beacon, and at the same time preserving important
information. In addition, parts of the report were edited to prevent attackers from learning about US electronic vulnerabilities.
Here in this truncated form of the report was published.
Its authors believe that a superbomb that propagates electromagnetic radiation may be blown up, for example, at an altitude of 30 kilometers. It is
safe for people, but all devices where there is electronics will be destroyed "within a few seconds." The power supply will be stopped, the cars
will freeze, the connection will break. In general, USA in the event of the beginning of the Third World War will immediately appear in the Stone
But the main thing is that neither planes nor nuclear missiles will be able to take off from the territory of the United States to destroy Russia,
China or any other country.
According to the speakers, such weapons, besides Russia, may be possessed by China and, possibly, North Korea. Although North Korea, I think they just
added to the thrill of the reader.
The report is illustrated with maps, so that it is clear about the catastrophe of what scale is involved.
I do not know how realistic the weapon described in the Pentagon report is. In the Russian media, this is said extremely rarely and only with hints.
For the first time, fragmentary information about this weapon appeared 3 years ago in a blog of Oleg Matveychev, a philosopher, political scientist
and professor at the Higher School of Economics National Research University, close to the Kremlin. Then hints were said about the existence of some
kind of clever electromagnetic gun, the radiation of which burns away everything where there is electronics, right up to calculators. And if you hang
it, for example, to the satellite, then the area of coverage may expand to the size of the United States.
