Russia Claims To Have An 'Electronic Bomb' That Can Disable The US Navy's Electronics



FOX News/The SUN: Russia claims it can wipe out US Navy with single 'electronic bomb'

Russia has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming.

A news report from the country – where the media is essentially controlled by the state – said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless.

The newsreader says: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralise any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.”

The news report claims a single Russian war plane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling its systems and leaving it helpless.

I remember the original reports. The ship seemed quite spooked by the incident.

Doubtful

Equipment is hardened.

The fallback is tossing nukes.

Everyone should have their iodine pills.
