And how do you explain then with all this progress that German ships were repeatedly surprised by British ships? E.g. Hipper and Scharnhorst? And that their shooting at night was not impressive at all? Was that before these radars were developed? Or where they not sufficient to direct guns (as you indicate with "close to").
And that they were surprised is even more interesting because of the focus on radar detectors. Such detectors were used also early in the war, e.g. Bismarck misinterpreted her detection of British radars with being still detected by them and therefore made that long radio message.
