Does not mean there is actual laser object present. Returns laser designator weapon's toggle state. In other words isLaserOn can return true while laserTarget returns <NULL-object>, for example in case laser was turned on and unit left the vehicle, there would be no laser target entity anymore, while designator is still turned on.
