Several nations including Russia and China are developing massive electromagnetic pulse (EMP) bombs that are designed to wipe out nearly all electronics, from computers to power grids, for hundreds of miles surrounding the blast, a new congressional report warns.
The report by the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from EMP Attack, which no longer exists, reveals for the first time details about how nuclear EMP weapons are being integrated into battle plans by China, Russia, North Korea, and even Iran, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
Of the details provided by the report, the authors also disclose how those countries would employ EMP attacks in various battle theaters including Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and North America.
“Nuclear EMP attack is part of the military doctrines, plans, and exercises of Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran for a revolutionary new way of warfare against military forces and civilian critical infrastructures by cyber, sabotage, and EMP,” the report says.
