Beijing Prof claims China used ‘microwave’ weapons to cook Indian soldiers alive on Aug 29

According to the British daily ‘The Times’, China’s military used microwave weapons to force Indian troops to retreat during a border stand-off in the Himalayas. The microwave attack was said to have taken place on August 29.

Professor of international relations at Renmin University, Beijing, Jin Canrong, told students during a lecture, “Its forces turned two strategic hilltops occupied by Indian soldiers into a microwave oven.”


He further added, “The Indian troops were forced back, allowing the positions to be retaken without an exchange of conventional fire.” He claimed, “The People’s Liberation Army beautifully seized the ground without violating a no-live-shot rule governing the orders of engagement in the mountain stand-off.”

“We [China] didn’t publicize it because we solved the problem beautifully,” Mr Jin said as The Times reported, “They [India] didn’t publicize it either because they lost so miserably.” The professor said that Chinese troops fired from the bottom of the hills and ‘turned the mountain tops into a microwave oven’.

“In 15 minutes, those occupying the hilltops all began to vomit,” he said. “They couldn’t stand up, so they fled. This was how we retook the ground.”

India and China are on border stand-off, started from 5th May to the present day. On 14 June 2020, Indo-China tensions raised significantly when Chinese soldiers attacked Indian soldiers in a hand to hand combat killing 20 Indian soldiers and unknown Chinese soldiers (as per the US reports Chinese casualties were 45 in total while India claimed 30 Chinese casualties which involve the death of a Chinese officer while China never revealed the numbers.)

Since the deadly clash India and China had total 8 rounds of high-level military talks. And finally, in the 8th round India and China had agreed to the disengagement process.

The High-Power Microwave (HPM) weapon system intended to produce electrically lethal damage or disruption and dysfunction in opposing airborne systems, be the aircraft or guided munitions in flight. The weapon uses an X-band pulsed 500 MegaWatt HPM source, generating 10 to 20 nanosecond pulses at a 500 Hz PRF, and average output power of 2.5 to 5 KiloWatts. The antenna is large enough to provide a gain of 45 to 50 dB in the X-band, for a total weapon weight of 5 tonnes. The weapon has been described as a “radio-frequency cannon”
