I don't know why people think EMP bombs are some super destructive weapon, this isnt the Matrix Reloaded. All major weapons systems are electrical
like uhh Jets , tanks, vehicles of all types use electrical energy. Not to mention your radios, satelite communication, GPS, NV goggles. If someone
could simply disable everything electrical it would be sold in massive numbers : )
You can harden circuits from EMP. I assume most of the military apparatus has some shielding.
Somone mentioned the gun has no recoil, the story says no felt recoil. This is a vehicle mounted weapon. If you watch the video you see it doesn't
look like a convential weapon at all. But new weapons systems may not look anything like what is fielded today.
If the weapon works it is an amazing, out of the blue development IMHO.
Just think, were coming back to the days of the musket ball, just a whole lot faster,harder and more lethal by a power of magnitude.
