South Korea: North Korea is developing electromagnetic guns based on Russian technologies

South Korea: North Korea is developing electromagnetic guns based on Russian technologiesSouth Korea’s national intelligence released a report from which Pyongyang acquired military electromagnetic pulse (EMI) technology from Russia, on the basis of which it is developing guns for disabling its southern neighbor’s electronic equipment.


Electromagnetic weapon is used to destroy electronic equipment, but when used at high energy levels can lead to more serious problems, including damage aviation designs, writes Defense News.

From the document it follows that the head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, considers cyber attacks as a universal weapon along with nuclear development and missiles. According to his order, according to Seoul, North Korean experts are trying to hack smartphones in order to offer South Koreans to become informants.

Intelligence officers also succeeded in proving that it was from North Korea that the last major cyber attacks were launched on the websites of banks, government agencies and television companies in South Korea. In total, according to the report, in recent years about a thousand sites have been attacked from the DPRK, and the damage from the activities of hackers amounted to approximately 805 million dollars. Meanwhile, Pyongyang does not recognize its involvement in cyber attacks and accuses Seoul of fabricating data.

According to intelligence data, North Korean experts collected information on South Korea’s oil reserves and the location of chemical arsenals. In addition, Pyongyang has metro and railway networks in major cities in South Korea.

The report also shows that North Korean intelligence officers are working undercover in China and Japan, promoting the views of the North Korean leadership.

    Everything Seoul said is paranoid. And if true, well done Koreans from the DPRK.

      I want to remind about 911
      another summer cyber match took place in South Korea that summer
      and swore American and Chinese hakira youngsters
      with its counter-strike and speedforce
      and then they called their older brothers
      and ended up by almost 70% by August already
      american government servers
      lay dead
      even the famous whitehouse dot gov moved to another place
      that's why the CIA was diverted to the other side
      and missed the attack of one h * asshole

      here you have a cyberattack

        And you mean white-assed? The Chinese and Koreans are Asians, and they are much better than the white-assed United States, and especially the Aryans. You have a mistake in the nickname. By the way, if they didn’t know, Hitler started a war that would cleanse him of non-Aryans, and my great-grandfather would kill Aryans.

          even a minus is not a desire to set
          don't hide behind grandfather
          say it yourself
          and if there is a claim to a nick, I ask you to write in a personal
          if she certainly works here
          we'll talk there

    If so, then the military-technical advantage of the South Caucasus is minimized.

    It’s interesting, and when will we adopt electromagnetic guns? The Yankees are already taking it.

      The fact that in the video this is a railgun in the common people a "gaus cannon" can only work from a large reactor, for several shots you need to charge for a rather long time, it has nothing to do with EMP weapons, there were EMP bombs in the USSR, and most likely there are also in Russia.

      The news was apparently misinterpreted, EMR bombs are needed to disable electrical equipment, in theory the railgun can be used in air defense and missile defense but it is expensive and not effective.

        The railgun and the Gaussian cannon are weapons operating on different principles.

    Never. Our government at this stage can trade and promise. They need more vryatli.

    Well, they sold something to them))) I think the developments of the end of the 80s) And what if it’s true and they gave them something or sold, or North Korean intelligence is so cool (and it’s not working badly for its level without a joke ), which has underestimated all the documentation and samples ... but there is one thing, BUT it’s not that technological level, so to bring this technology to mind, unite it with the forces of North Korea itself is not real.

    Well, yes ... there’s something to be afraid of ... without its electronics against frost-bitten, well-trained fighters, South Korea will simply be Korea with the Juche ideology

    Normally, this is not to kill people, destroy electronic killers. And if parity is not what everyone wants to fight.

    South Korean National Intelligence Releases Report
    More like nonsense and an attempt to shift the blame for any disaster on the DPRK. The plane crashed - the EMI guns were to blame, the bank hacked - the North Koreans tried, there was an OM leak - again, Kim Jong-un is extreme. Not even funny.

    For some reason, the article mixes two completely different concepts - an electromagnetic gun (railgun), which destroys the enemy due to the kinetic energy of a small projectile dispersed to cosmic speeds and electronic warfare equipment, which are designed specifically to disable or block the enemy’s electronics. The North Koreans probably do not have the first, and no one has such a gun yet (experimental installations do not count), but the second is quite likely and there is nothing surprising in this.

    In the photo, the railgun is an electromagnetic gun, and the article indicates the ability to disable electronic equipment. Damn, how do they write and do not notice things of a different order?

    Our leaked technology by e-magn. guns?
    It seems to me that they say that our electronics are backward, almost a tube, so it seems to me that they leaked for this purpose the South Korean chips on their knees
    in other words, to promote their lamps))
    a joke of course, but ...
