A weapon that generates an EMP to wipe out electronically and magnetically recorded data. These are normally only used by security agencies like the CIA and the Mossad however some amateurs have built working models.
The best EMP guns are nuclear weapons but they are the hardest to build. TANSTAAFL

According to some research I have happened across, some part of the defense establishment are working on conventional EMP bombs. They use a multi-stage flux compression generator (a type of explosive generator) to produce an enormous drive current for a virtual cathode oscillator, or other compact, high-power microwave source. A 2000-lb EMP bomb would have an effective radius of hundreds of yards.
