Does this mean we can shoot S530D without a radar lock, just by using the Magic seeker?

Thanks for the clarification. Just to be clear, this thing of being able to combine the magic seeker with other weapons, be AA or AG, confuses me a bit. What's the purpose? in which situations this is nice to use?

Background search, like a poor man's IRST. You can switch and shoot magic instantly, you keep the target even when your radar is notched....

I'm sure there are some other application that I'm too tiered to think of.
