Concluding the susceptibility of nations to having electrical power disrupted during a time of war.
As originally envisioned, the special operations unit First Special Service Force from the era of the Second World War intended to fight as guerrillas in Nazi-occupied Europe.
PRIMARY TARGETS TO INCLUDE GERMAN ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION STATIONS!
"[the First Special Service Force was] a commando unit that could be landed, by sea or air, into occupied Norway, Romania, and the Italian Alps on sabotage missions against hydroelectric plants and oil fields . . . attacks on Norwegian power stations, which supplied the country with 49% of its power, might drive the Axis powers out of the country and give the Allies a direct link to Russia . . . and Italian hydroelectric plants powered most of south German industry."
ATTACK TOO NOT BY MISSILE OR WARPLANE BUT BY THE PARTISAN, THE FOOT SOLDIER! TURBINES AND TRANSFORMERS BLOWN TO BITS BY DEMOLITION EXPERTS HANDS-ON!
And in the modern context a electric-production power station destroyed from afar by computer hackers. It is already a reality!! Who needs LONG-RANGE MISSILES or WARPLANES when a computer keyboard can do it all from 5,000 miles away [or greater]!
"When the US government demonstrated in 2007 how hackers could take down a power plant by physically destroying a generator with just 21 lines of code, many in the power industry dismissed the demo as far-fetched. Some even accused the government of faking the so-called Aurora Generator Test to scare the public."
"Victory smiles upon those who anticipate the change in the character of war, not upon those who wait to adapt themselves after the changes occur." - - Douhet.
