Nonetheless the theoritical groundwork of it (The paper also include mathematical equation for predicting performance) Showed that it might not be promising. Nonetheless it is one hell of interesting concept.
I was thinking something like Russia using ground based EW systems to target hostile F-22, F 35 etc over Russian airspace if they are involved in a dogfight with Russian Su 30 or Su 35s.
But then I suspect that ground based EW systems will also affect the Su 30s and Su 35s adversely.
Not if the planes are not close to each other..
The EW system russia have shown.. have parabolic antenas , like a Dish satellite cable antenna.
That shows they can guide the electronic attack to any specific zone.. So as long the russian planes are not withing visual distance of the enemy planes ie.. 5km to 10km,, they will not be aimed with the gun.
The nice thing of radio eletromagnetic attacks is that is not affected like lazers are on bad weather. go to the EW thread ,and see what i posted.. If Russia Electronic warfare is half as good as they claim.. it will be a real game changer.. it should be able to turn off combat planes..
and damage its avionics and electric circuits.. this will be catastrophic ,no even the ejection sit will work.. knowing how Americans likes to use electronics in all. Or at the very least.. Russia
electronic warfare should be able to interrupt F-22 radars and make all their missiles to fail.
US airforce have counter electronics too.. so if both are good .. then pretty much modern warfare will be death.. none of the modern missiles will hit any target.. and you will need
old school anti air artillery or planes close combat gun.. to do the job ,that missiles cant do.
It is possible that in the future.. as science progress ,stand off ,long range warfare will be death and next to useless and armies will be forced to fight with Shields and swords and physical combat again..
For example gun powder or tnt or any chemical could be neutralized before it explode .
by remotely changing from distance its internal chemical composition of the explosive..
Any nation who develop this will be a hundreds year ahead of the any competition.. nothing
will explode again.. This however should be dangerous too for humans if used against them.
Putin himself told they were experimenting with Bombs that can damage diesel and fuel
in armor..without killing anyone or damaging any infrastructure. .. so essentially neutralize any convoy of tanks before it reach the warzone ,forcing any army to go on foot.. or wait for fuel ..
What we have seen until now from NATO ..is just primitive warfare in comparison to how advanced is science,physics , and mathematics today. For example everyone talks about electronics how USA have the world best electronics.. etc.. But a Scientist i had a conversation ,told me electronics are yesterday technology and it will be obsolete in near future. ,and that Science is at least 200 years head of the technology we see today. What will replace electronics is photonics circuits.
Science is even exploring things like time traveling or parallel universes.. phenomenons they
see happening in the atoms world. What happens is that Theory Science always comes first.. and it takes a hundred of years at least to see its implementation of science into the physical world .what people call "modern technology" in reality is something really old in science.
Today for example.. computer processors use silicon ,semiconductors to create modern computers.. But already science have proven is possible to operate and control atoms and electrons to store computer information. They believe when such quantum computers developed..the jump will be computers a million times faster ,than the ones we have today..
that will have the size of a sheet of paper. Really cool stuff .
So i suspect..we are on the verge of a new Era of advanced military warfare ,that will totally
revolutionize the way wars are done..and its seems Russia is way ahead in this.. with their EW weapons.
