Loitering Munitions (also known as kamikaze drones) is a class of weapon systems in which ammunition orbits a target area for a period of time and attacks when the target is located.

Loitering Munitions are characterized as something between a cruise missile and unmanned aerial vehicles (UCAVs), as it has features in common with both.

The LORA missile system is a ballistic missile system built in Israel with a range of 400 kilometers and a CEP of 10 meters. In 2018 the system was purchased by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces and used in 2020 in the Artsakh war.
