You will have to be stupid to operate SAMs on automatic mode in peacetime.

Even in wartime there is hardly any reason to ever operating in such a mode. Not unless you are in so much trouble that you know turning on your radar is pretty much a suicide mission, so you set the system on automatic mode and high tail out of there before enemy SEAD/DEAD assets obliterate the SAM site, and just hope it managed to fire off some missiles and shoot something down before it was toasted.
