were they U.S. Navy ships? i find it hard to believe even the gyro & mag compasses were completely down! no sun or stars to get some idea of where they were heading?
Do you have it stowed in a Faraday Cage??What would an EMP to to a handheld GPS which was not activated and stowed?
OK, I'll embarrass myself here and mention that movie was actually 29 years ago, yes it was really dumb, and they were F-14s. Don't ask me how I know, because if I have to explain myself I might have to jump off a tall bridge.There was a movie like this a few years back. One of the big carriers ran into an electromagnetic storm off Hawaii that caused it to travel back in time to December 7, 1941. Ridiculous premise, fun movie watching the F-15s fly past the Zeros.
Okay then . How about vacuum operated DG's (directional gyro's) that some older aircraft use. Would they be affected?Gyros are affect by EMP due to that their amplifiers & distribution boards are electronic.
