    How? An EMP emitter?

    Any news on the Russian plane that crashed today?

    Extremely powerful microwave emissions. Any large jammer is indistinguishable from an EMP, and any significantly powerful radar is indistinguishable from a jammer. The IL-22PP is an airborne jamming platform similar to the EC-130 Compass Call.

    On some of the boats I was on we could use our radars to fry the sensors of patrol aircraft or enemy shipping, and demonstrated such during exercises on a few occasions. We could jam them too, but the power output of some of our systems was high enough to actually destroy the avionics of aircraft within a certain range.

    Within a certain distance you could also fry organics and machinery. Radars have an exclusion zone around them. Even when off, ships have no-go zones cordoned off from non-protected personnel to prevent them from coming into injury due to residual emissions and hazardous material.

    Using radar emissions alone, we'd not only fry this SU-24 "buzzing" Donald Cook, but would cook the pilot like a Turkey too.

    Russia makes powerful radars, the Zaslon on the MiG-31 could fry a rabbit at about 400 meters off-the-deck. They make good jammers too and if significantly powerful, either a radar or jammer could function as a directional EMP.

    In any circumstance they possess the means to destroy or degrade the avionics and electronics aboard aircraft.

    But there are other ways of degrading such too, without the intent to cause harm to the platform itself. While they're unlikely to be able to jam AWACS radars like AN/APY-1, AN/APY-2 or AN/APY-9 given the power output of the later and their ability to burn through jamming attempts or rapidly hop frequencies, they can degrade the communications capabilities of the AWACS. What good are working eyes with a mute mouth? If you can't talk to your assets you can't coordinate, can't react, can't fight as effectively even if your radar sees everything.

    Russia retains numerous options.

    You would think Russia would have jets by now.

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. military says it intercepted two Russian bombers in international airspace off Alaska's coast.
    Navy Commander Gary Ross, a Pentagon spokesman, says a pair of F-22 Raptor aircraft intercepted the Russian TU-95 Bear bombers on Monday.
    Ross says the intercept was "safe and professional."
    North American Aerospace Defense Command monitors air approaches to North America and defends the airspace.
    Fox News said Tuesday the Russian planes flew within 100 miles (160 kilometers) of Alaska's Kodiak Island.
    It said the American jets escorted the Russian bombers for 12 minutes. The bombers then flew back to eastern Russia

    April 29, 2017: Russia is discovering that reviving the quality and diversity of their Soviet era air force is becoming unachievable because the money, and the talent, is simply not there and is unlikely to be available in the foreseeable future. . Now its impossible and for the usual reasons; not enough money and inability to manufacture all the high-tech components (especially engines) needed. The money shortage is easy to understand but the talent shortage is somewhat unique to Russia. During the Soviet period Russia was very much a dictatorship with literally everyone and every aspect of their lives subject to the “needs of the state.” That meant Russia could order the most talented engineers, scientists and production specialists to work on weapons. These chosen ones received benefits that made life easier and that worked for a few generations until it didn’t. After the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991 Russia underwent a second “freeing of the serfs” (the first was in the 1860s). People were free to move around, leave the country and seek better jobs wherever they could. Russian defense industries have still not recovered from the shock of losing so many of their talent. After that there were far more attractive non-defense jobs for talented people.

    What defence, you have a few (56) short range nuclear tipped interceptors based around only Moscow. The use of just one of which would EMP your entire defence grid in that area. Meanwhile the US have 212 (at last look) GMDs and countless SM-3s and THAAD. Warheads would get through in either case, but clearly 56 short range interceptors cannot stop 400+ ICBMs with 1500+ warheads.
