Yes. "No pre-measurement" is fine for historical (ancient/napoleonic/
whatever) battles where there were no reliable way to measure distances.
For high-tech battles, however... well, if I can see you on my radar, I
know how far away you are, right? And I can keep track of the range all
the time, too. I strongly suspect the same would apply for other types
high-tech sensors or scanners too.
