Linkers, a little while back we discussed electromagnetic pulses as
munitions. A friend who specialises in defence writing sent me this link:
http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/munitions/hpm.htm

I note with interest that, near the bottom, the effective radius of a 2000lb
microwave munition is given as 200 metres (heaven knows why they mix
imperial and metric!). That's a lot of energy for not much reach...
