Electronic countermeasures, abbreviated ECM, is an electrical or electronic device designed to trick or deceive radar, sonar or other detection systems, like infrared (IR) or lasers.
Introduced in Wargame: AirLand Battle, it is a countermeasure for aircraft against anti-air units targeting it. In Wargame: Red Dragon, the amount of flares released depends on the value of the jet aircraft's ECM.
In Airland Battle, the ECM is a modifier for the chance to hit.
