What happens if you use an EMP weapon against swarms? The book says it fries communication equipment, but swarms are controlled by a gestalt mind. Without communication, the gestalt swarm-mind ceases to exist. Does this effectively kill them? Do they have any way of resisting? What about nanoswarms; you'd think they'd be too tiny to mount any real form of sheilding; an EMP blast ought to kill any nanites exposed to it dead. Nanites inside a living organism or synth would likely be protected by the matter of the host acting as a sort of Faraday Cage, but free-ranging ones ought to die horribly. Also, what happens to a bush robot, like the TITAN's Fractals, exposed to an EMP blast? Practically the entire thing is a giant bush of extremely fine wiring.
