    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.

    The report also claims they are capable to creating electronic jamming domes over their bases that make them invisible on radar screens.

    The propaganda piece even quotes top US General Frank Gorenc as saying: “Russian electronic weapons completely paralyse the functioning of American electronic equipment installed on missiles, aircraft and ships.”

    The reporter adds: “You don’t need to have expensive weapons to win – powerful radio-electronic jamming is enough.”

    The news comes after Donald Trump dispatched the USS Carl Vinson, powered by nuclear reactors, carrying almost 100 aircraft and accompanied by destroyers, a cruiser, and a submarine to the Korean Peninsula.

    And the commander-in-chief is said to be bolstering American deployment in the region by sending the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz to the Sea of Japan next week.

    Russia, along with China, is said to have sent a spy ship to the area to ward off the task force amid rising tensions in the region.

    And Putin urged the US to show “restraint”.

    Now what kind of Bomb Is Russia Claiming? Is it just propaganda to create fear psychosis or is it for real?

    We do know that earlier SU-25 with KHIBNEY EW did fried USS Donad DUCK (oops Cook).

    And if it is for real does India or China has access to this technology? If India has access than it's good and if China Has access to it due to its closeness to Russia and huge Bucks then we are in soup.

    Off course, Russians are bullshitting. We could all expect that USN is not stupid enough to pile all its assets so close that a single EMP would be able to take them out.

    Or they meant a CBG and whole Navy was a mistranslation or mischief.

    Russia EW suites are pretty advanced, our own Vicky's EW suite and jamming ensure it can't be painted by fighters or AWACS on their radars.

    So, where were the Russians when US imposed sanction on them ?

    The god almighty Russia just needed to drop few of these weapons and US would have been a dead horse, no?

    Business as usual,

    Why would third world country buy weapons if there is no threat.
    Russia wanting to pair up to show, for their own defense industry is not making much headway.

    It is good for business as both US and Russia can benefit, i guess more to US side than Russia.

    So why does it need anti-ship missiles and torpedoes, especially really fast ones?
