The US army has reportedly successfully used cyberweapons and electronic warfare (EW) to repulse a simulated tank attack during a training exercise. The cyberweapons used during the exercise, which took place at the Army National Training Centre in California, reportedly targeted radio and wireless communications systems of tankers. Soldiers reportedly used specific cyber tools to jam the tank’s communication signals and hack into networks to disable attacks and/or manipulate communications to deliver false information to the enemy. The exercise included the intrusion of civilian networks, which may help troops to invade a given territory and subdue population.
