This could very likely explain what happened to the USS Donald Cook a few months ago, where it was described to be shut off like it was a simple television set.
As oft said here, what’s more concerning is not the Russian capability in war or the undeclared weapons, but what the American unintelligence community fails to see ahead of time until it’s too late. They all of a sudden become “shocked” to see something like this. It’s quite safe to say that Russia’s military (and also China’s) is just about on par with their American counterparts. Within the next few years, as America suicidally declines, they will be the dominant forces in the world.
As we speak, we’re living through the changing of the guard.
Russia is boasting a major advance in electronic warfare technology enabling Vladimir Putin’s armed forces to zap foreign military satellites, and “switch off” enemy weapons.
The new system will muzzle the guidance systems of Western cruise missiles and other high-precision arms, it is claimed.
Its Russian makers say it is a “fundamentally new electronic warfare system” which can be mounted on ground-based as well as air- and sea-borne carriers.
