UK Reports Progress to Electric Armor Enhancement to Tanks To Counter Rocket Propelled Grenades
Using localized short circuited supercapacitors to shield against plasma jet shaped charges and RPG's. Other option is to use a non-uniform surface (via a hole pattern) to forcibly tumble projectiles, losing their effectiveness.

NASA - Carrington Super Flare
The only natural disaster that is specifically worse for a first world country, a Carrington Event level solar flare striking the earth at an inopportune time and after the ACE satellite dies means the first world will almost cease to exist as we know it, since it will effectively melt all the critical large transformers in the electrical gird unless the power companies get at least 15 minutes warning.
