Boeing Successfully Tests Microwave Missile

I've lurked here long enough (several years) to know that links won't show right since I just signed up, but here it is anyway.   http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2012/10/25/boeing-successfully-tests-microwave-missile-that-takes-out-electronic-targets/

The aerospace company tested the microwave missile last week on a two-story building on the Utah Test and Training Range where computers and electronic systems were turned on to gauge the effects of the missile’s radio waves, according to a Boeing press release.

The missile, known as CHAMP (Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project), fired a burst of High Powered Microwaves at the building, successfully knocking out the electronic systems and computers, and even taking out the television cameras recording the test.

Thought that was quite interesting.  Microwave warheads would be a good addition to the game, hard to balance though.
