EMP grenades are HERE~!


Quote:
"EMP grenade technology is out there, but I've never had my hands on one," said Col Laurie Buckhout, chief of the newly formed Electronic Warfare Division, Army Operations, Readiness and Mobilization...
The target may be a small building or a village, she said, and so a small jammer could be used, or EMP grenades.
I just ordered mine at the egg this morning...LOL!

USA has EMP tech ready now.

Towards the end of the article they also talk about a pulse rifle a.k.a. EMP rifle. Pretty sweet~~~~!

Well, they did say that the technology was out there. It just may have taken this long to get them small enough that they can be carried in the hand, or they were too expensive in the past.

But I wish they would have at LEAST showed us a picture of the device! Even if we couldn't see any of the internals, I at least would have liked to see the outer shell of the thing.
