    Developed for Korean War ground-directed bombing (e.g., B-26 bombers), one detachment of the 3903rd Radar Bomb Scoring Squadron bombed itself with an MSQ-1 because it mistakenly used procedures for the earlier SCR-584/OA-294 system[4] (the MSQ-1 was later replaced by the Reeves AN/MSQ-2 Close Support Control Set.) The MSQ-1 was subsequently used for nuclear testing during Operation Argus (mounted on the USS Tarawa (CV-40)) and during Operation Teapot, and for aircraft tests such as for "MSQ-1 controlled pinpoint photography" in 1954 (RB-57A Canberra "Night Photo Bombing").[5]
