South Korea has prepared graphite bombs to strike at the DPRK

The South Korean military has made a deliberate leaks of information to journalists about plans to immerse their Northern neighbor in a world of darkness. A plan called “Deadly chain” is based on the mass strike on the territory of the DPRK ammunition type “bomb for the blackout”. They won’t kill anyone (except indirectly), but will bring many problems to northerners.

Graphite bomb did not contain explosives. In fact, it is a container with a large number of filaments of carbon. They are distinguished by low weight, coupled with great electrical conductivity – if a munition is activated over the plant, the territory will cover the climbing frame of the plurality of wires. This will provoke a lot of short circuits with laws and consequences for equipment and the facility as a whole.

Apply graphite bombs wherever there are electric wires without isolation – in 1999, the US tried to destroy the power grid of Serbia. Without much success, but risks of these strikes is small, especially for the civilian population. But there is chance to leave the region without phone service, and in the modern world without Internet access, which is very painful. But it is not clear whether this threat is relevant for North Korea.

South Korea’s military say that fully explored the technology of graphite bombs and at any time can start their mass production and use. Solely as a preventive measure, if you find prepare northerners for war. Will it stop the very probable retaliation direct fire from heavy artillery on the multi-million Seoul, is difficult to answer.
