    Exactly. Back when I was involved in RADHAZ/HERO testing for USN, we had a "rush job" to certify the then-new Apache with it's various weapon loads for USN flight deck operations. Needed in the Persian Gulf asap at the time. We conducted the testing at Dahlgren's ground plane facility for the better part of a week, nonstop including Sundays. Boy howdy..once we got up to keying higher field powers, we lit everything up and off on that bird including the rubber tire on the tail wheel. I think they (Army) ended up operating them off of barges or commercial vessels instead... ;-p

    EMV testing is based on operational environment.
    Platforms (Aircraft) are also tested for EMP if required to meet certain specs.
