Korea plans to start developing bombs with carbon fiber filaments that can knock out the electricity of enemy bases, its top arms research institute said Thursday, Yonhap reported.
In a report presented to a parliamentary inspection of defense affairs, the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) said the prototype of a carbon fiber bomb will be created next year.
The bomb contains filaments that can inflict damage on electric wires and facilities and temporarily incapacitate them rather than destroy them.
Research into related technologies has been under way since 2006, the ADD said in the report. It did not say by when it plans to start the production of carbon fiber bombs.
Carbon fiber strands were extensively used by U.S. forces during the Gulf War in 1991.
