I propose this was the U.S. military demonstrating an above-top-secret method to neutralize nuclear weapons. If we can shut down our own nukes, that means we’d be able to shut down Soviet nukes.
So, on the hypothesis that we already had advanced field-propulsion vehicles by the 1960s and that we’ve actually had this capability since the early post-war period, by the 1960s this super-secret weapon was outfitted with electromagnetic pulse technology to bombard the hardened electronics in nuclear missile systems. This would have temporarily taken down these systems.
But, hey, I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. It’s all in Flying Saucers!
Another story about UFOs shutting down nuclear missile sites.
While you might think this indicates space alien involvement, I would argue just the opposite. My hypothesis is that this was the Pentagon testing new technologies to shut down the launch mechanism in the event of the Big One.
The idea is that if you can shut down your own nuke sites, penetrate the hardened electronics, evade security, etc., etc., then you should also be able to neutralize those of your adversaries.
I propose these were above-top-secret U.S. military platforms that operate using field propulsion.
I further propose the United States has had this propulsion technology, in one form or another, since the post-war period and that it has been evolving ever since. So now we see the most recent products, like the Tic Tac vehicle encountered by Navy pilots.
