the saying goes, one thing down a thing. Sometimes deal with advanced weapons, not necessarily non-use of advanced weapons can not.
1943, at the Bay of Biscay Allied ships in World War II was a weapon “chasing” a hit, with heavy losses. Identified, the culprit is the German Air Force HS-293 guided bombs. It is equipped with a radio receiver and boosters, in the remote to adjust the direction of flight, hitting the target.
sent scientists to take the Allied warships into the Bay of Biscay, field trips, looking for solutions.
fleet just entering the Bay of Biscay, have been subjected to violent attacks. Scientists to bring the instrument playing over and over, did not find a good way. Fortunately, Walker, commander of the fleet command ship deftly dodged the German attack.
helpless on the occasion of the scientists, the German bomber fired two successive bombs. Seeing nowhere to hide, but deviated from the direction of the two bombs, fall into the water! Shaken scientists sensitive to: may a ship on the electronic equipment being used since the interference effect. They soon find out, when a bomb dropped to the ship, an officer is using electric shaver.
so, they will also assured the coast close to the fleet that will attract the German bombers. Walker ordered together four electric razor in the fully open when the German bomb. Results, HS-293, like locusts, like losing the wings into the sea.
original, electric razor will turn generate a weak electromagnetic wave when its wavelength and the HS-293 guided bombs similar to the radio wave length, its remote control commands to produce the interference. As we watch TV or listen to the radio, if someone in the vicinity of the use of electric shavers, there may be covered with snow on the television screen, speakers, filled “rustling” sound phenomenon.
However, when the Germans never think he could even so advanced guided bombs sink like a stone.
