We have known that the Russians have EMP weapons because of their published (an sometimes not) research with the technology. And now, of course, we can include China . . .

A declassified intelligence report, obtained by the private National Security Archive, provides details on China’s EMP weapons and plans for their use. Annual Pentagon reports on China’s military in the past made only passing references to the arms. (Read more from this story HERE)
