This means their lights can only reach medium intensity at full brightness, so when they truncate it's not an SSALR, it's a MALSR.
The light setup is identical to SSALR but, because of the reduced intensities, this is called MALSR or "medium intensity approach light system with RAIL." "M" is the same as "SS"; the brightness steps are the only difference.
