Electronic Counter-Measures are systems installed on vehicles and TAGs with the goal of disrupting and deactivating enemy guided projectiles.
Standard ECM include fire detection radars that can pinpoint the location and course of enemy ordnance, and a small battery of short-range micromissiles that deploy nanotechnological chaff. The chaff interferes with the guiding systems, deviating enemy projectiles and making them detonate harmlessly out of range. Ariadnan ECM are similarly effective, but bulkier. Instead of nanotech micromissiles, their ECM fire a battery of rockets that create a wall of shrapnel to destroy enemy projectiles.
The Drãgao, outside the LoF of the Yaókòng Remote, can still declare an ARO because the Attack uses an Impact Template, and also because the attack is Guided and the TAG has ECM. The Drãgao must choose between Dodging the Template [Face to Face PH-9 Roll (TAG Dodging -6 to PH, and Impact Template out of LOF -3 to PH) against the Remote's BS+6], or activating his ECM (thus canceling the +6 MOD to the Remote's BS Roll).
After weighing his chances, the Drãgao pilot chooses the ECM option. The Yaókòng Remote fails its unmodified Normal BS Roll, and the projectile is innocuously lost.
