READY TO GO: US Deploys Microwave Missiles Capable of Disabling Iran’s Nuclear Facilities

The US Air Force has quietly deployed a new weapon capable of destroying the electronics of Iran’s nuclear facilities without causing any fatalities, the Daily Mail reports.

The Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP) uses high-power microwaves to render electronic devices useless, making it an ideal weapon for targeting nuclear facilities without causing collateral damage.

The missiles, built by Boeing’s Phantom Works, were first tested successfully in 2012 and became operational in 2019. They are fitted into an air-launched cruise missile and delivered from B-52 bombers, with a range of 700 miles and the ability to fly at low altitude. The microwave weapons emit sharp pulses of high power microwave energy, frying computer chips and disabling electronic devices.

The project has been advancing secretly since the successful test in 2012, which took down a compound’s entire spectrum of electronic systems without damaging anything else. The missiles are designed to penetrate bunkers and underground facilities, making them ideal for targeting command and control centers, nuclear facilities, and other military targets.

The deployment of CHAMP missiles comes as tensions between the US and Iran continue to escalate, with Israel conducting strikes in Iran in retaliation for Tehran’s unprecedented drone-and-missile assault earlier this week. The US has warned that further attacks could plunge the Middle East further into conflict.
