Hey all,

Playing the last scenario in COW and I have a B-1 loaded with JASSM-ER omni-directional EMP weapons. I haven't worked out the best way to use these for maximum effect.

From what I can tell, they differ from the high-altitude airburst EMP weapons in that the footprint is much smaller. Is that correct?

I can't find much info on the interweb. Articles I've seen talk about the CHAMP armed JASSM but that's only available in the Professional Edition.

Any of you kind people have some tips as how these weapons are best used?

Thanks in advance

It needs a direct hit on a unit to kill the radar. It has no area of effect. I played around with them in the editor

The only use I found for these was hitting high concentrations of SAM sites or systems consisting of multiple units (e.g. S300-S400). One hit will knock out all radars instead of thrusting the random target allocation hit system to knock out the vital radar system of a site instead of one of the 8-10 TELL's...
