Electromagnetic armor isn't all that power consumptive or not as power consumptive as you'd think... I posted a link for electromagnetic already
earlier in this page.
As far as your assertion that a bomb disrupts logistics thereby achieving the goal....
As I've stated countless times my armored vehicle idea is not the be all end all. It's meant to be used in conjunction with persistent air cover to
spot emplacers of bombs at which point the vehicles sortie out to take out the bombers before they can finish emplacing it....
As far as shielding your bomb trigger and bomb (yes you'd have to shield both) idea go, that severely limits their choices of bomb trigger to some
sort of pressure or other trigger that can be mechanically actuated... and even then you'd have to be insanely careful to shield it fully! So no you
didn't defeat the navy's new technology. Like everything your idea is a trade off not a magic bullet.

Edit to add: I highly recommend going back through and reading the two pages of this thread many of your questions have already been answered either
in my original post or since then... I put a lot of thought into my design, and have worked to make it as balanced as possible. I have ordered some
more books which I should have in the next couple weeks which will help me work out my design further.
book 1: taming the land mine
These books will serve as further research aids for me to develop my idea further without trying to reinvent the wheel by looking at what others have
done to overcome the same issues I am trying to design around.
