Are they at your Airfields? Try flying over an enemy airfield with searchlights. I've flown a couple of nighttime missions with searchlights and it is very cool.

There have to be aircraft that the searchlights consider "enemy" within range (about 16km I think, but someone will correct me if I'm wrong http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) before the lights come on.

Also the searchlights don't come on until 2045.

It's written into the contract of the Searchlight and Incandesant Illuminators Union.
