Usually, loitering munition is classified in the category of kamikaze drones because they can wait in the sky for a few tens of minutes or even a few hours so that the operator can get the target. 

Thus missile has two methods to attack the enemy. One is the automatic method which after locking the missile's head camera on the target, automatically pursues the target and hits it. The second is that the missile is manually guided by the operator at the same time.
