A kind of Bigfoot of warfare

Posted in Crazy Weapons at 1:19 pm by George Smith

A no byline story on the website of the South Korean newspaper, the Chosun Ilbo, discusses the always said to be coming but never quite arriving electromagnetic pulse bomb.

It earns the quote of the day, of sorts:

A military officer who asked to remain anonymous on Sunday claimed South Korea has developed basic technology that will one day allow it to produce a so-called electromagnetic pulse bomb capable of paralyzing all electronic equipment. The bomb is a kind of Bigfoot of warfare.

“But another military source said the technology is a long way from being usable as a weapon,” concludes the paper.

Do they have Sasquatch south of the 38th parallel?

Apparently not.
