During World War II, night fighters were either purpose-built fighter designs, or more commonly, heavy fighters or light bombers adapted for the mission often employing radar linked to ground installations to detect enemy formations. Many WW II night fighters also included instrument landing systems for landing at night, as turning on the runway lights made runways into an easy target for opposing intruders. The casualty rates of the night fighter pilots was exceptionally high due to the danger of operation blindly at night.
