The first “active” systems may seem crude by today’s standards, but they gave those using them a huge advantage over those who did not—that is, the ability to accurately engage targets in the dark.

While the systems themselves are highly advanced, it still takes a definite skill set to get the most value out of them, and a fair bit of training time is required.
