Iran Missile Test Sends “Shockwave” Across Entire World
Aug 4th, 2012
A grave Ministry of Defense bulletin flashed to Russian Naval and Marine Forces approaching their Mediterranean base in the Syrian port of Tartus is warning that Iran’s successful test-firing of their fourth generation indigenously-made Fateh 110 precision missile earlier today confirms that this Middle Eastern nation on the brink of total war with the West has achieved the ability to detonate at high altitude, and with great range, a much feared EPFCG weapon.
EPFCG stands for “explosively pumped flux compression generator” which is a device used to generate a high-power electromagnetic pulse by compressing magnetic flux using high explosive.
An EPFCG weapon can be used only once as a pulsed power supply since the device is physically destroyed during operation. Most feared about EPFCG weapons is that could be easily carried by a person and can produce pulses in the millions of amperes and tens of terawatts, exceeding the power of a lightning strike by orders of magnitude.
Explosively pumped flux compression generators are popular as power sources for electronic warfare devices known as transient electromagnetic devices that generate an electromagnetic pulse without the costs and side effects of a nuclear weapon. They also can be used to accelerate objects to extreme velocities, and compress objects to very high pressures and densities; this gives them a role as a physics research tool....
