The U.S. Air Force has deployed at least 20 missiles that could zap the military electronics of North Korea or Iran with high-power microwaves, rendering their military capabilities virtually useless without causing any fatalities, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
Known as the Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP), the missiles were built by Boeing's Phantom Works for the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory and tested successfully in 2012. They have not been operational until now.
The microwave weapons are fitted into an air-launched cruise missile and delivered from B-52 bombers. With a range of 700 miles, they can fly into enemy airspace at low altitude and emit sharp pulses of high power microwave (HPM) energy that fry computer chips, disabling any electronic devices targeted by the missiles with causing any collateral damage.
Mary Lou Robinson, the chief of the High Power Microwave Division of the Air Force Research Lab at Kirtland Air Force Base, has confirmed to DailyMail.com that the missiles are now operational and ready to take out any target.

WHICH world economy is most vulnerable to such weapons, huh..?
I’ll bet lots of DC is hardened against EMP like that.
How about the rest of America?
They don’t care about us.
Flying Microwaves are a nice complement to the Flying Ginsus................
North Korea has electronics to fry?
Lets just let everyone know our secret weapons.
Ill bet lots of DC is hardened against EMP like that.
Military stuff, yes. Civilian infrastructure not so much.
No Nork... Microwave-a-mullah. Regular or extra crispy?
Probably leaked on purpose... PSYOPS baby! Kinda like Reagan’s STARWARS.
I think we developed these in a joint project with the Israelis?
These were featured in Popular Science a long time ago. Truly.
You can search for all sorts of articles on directed and local-effect EMP, tactical weapons
Better be quick on the trigger. Those shore to ship missiles that line the Persian Gulf have a flight time to target of less than 30 seconds. Those young sailors in the Gulf are at grave risk if somehow the crazy mullahs start shooting.
We should fire those missiles at Iran and fry their telecommunications, which would destroy the regime’s command and control over the country.
Revolution would quickly follow, marked by lamp posts decorated with mullahs & R.G.’s all across the country.
The Israelis do have miniature versions of such a weapon, used for more local blackouts of targets.
Ayatollah, damn you Della Street and your damn radar range!
I can just feel that the RATs are conspiring with Iran behind our backs.
They already know.
When they heard “Four B-52s deploy to ME” they knew what it was, and it was confirmed by Senator Tom Cotton’s remarks yesterday about “No, there ain’t gonna be any long war, we only need to hit them once”.
Then this comes out today. For a reason.
Anything underground is OK.
Anything protected by Faraday cages/grounding is OK.
And, RANGE is a big issue. 1-200 meters is likely.
