Electromagnetic missiles are active missiles that lock on the target thanks to active emission of electromagnetic pulses (i.e., radio detection and ranging, RADAR). The advantages of electromagnetic missiles are their fast adquisition of the target and that they do not depend on visual contact to adquir the target, thus giving longer adquisition range. The radar crossection of the target is more important than the vissual crossection, so for example an electromagnetic missile will take more time to adquire a F7C-S Hornet Ghost than a smaller Drake Cutter. The disanvatages is that they give amply warning to the target and that they can be targeted by countermeassures like chaff.
