The cause of the crash was not immediately clear but the incident took place during South Korea-US joint military exercises.
There is a reason their nickname is the "Crash Hawk"....

For all you nooobs out there. EMP will never down any U.S. Military anything unless the bomb goes through the front window.
EMP is and has always been a result of nuclear detonation, we learned that fact the hard way back after WW2. Everything since has been hardened against it so NO , EMP will stop anything our country uses from running.
Currently the U.S. is the only one that I know of to experiment with a device that only causes an EMP. Not that China and Russia haven't but they would know better than to use it against our military because it wont have any effect. What they are good at is turning off the power in third world cities like Baghdad.
the technology has now been refined to such an extent that targeted weaponry has now come to the fore. Promising to knock out enemy technology while saving that of nearby hospitals or friendly troops, the ability to direct EMPs, as demonstrated by devices like Boeing's CHAMP, holds the potential to revolutionise modern warfare.
