Not sure about all the extra stuff that's supposed to be crammed into the hull (stealth field, markerlight, etc.) but I certainly think it fits the Tau nicely.

Doesn't look too bad, but I agree that we don't need any more fast attack choices.

I can't make my mind up on this one - something's not quite right but I can't think what it is...

I don't know what it is, either. It just looks...meh.

Why must everything nice come from Forgeworld? :

I like the model. Looks to bring a fair bit of firepower and I can see it as a scout.

I like it very much. It's like one of the posters on the Warseer forums said:

Quote:
They fill two needs in a Tau army:
1.) Another Drone that saves Tau lives (fits my army philosophy)
2.) A fast and small source for seeker missiles that will survive longer than Piranhas without cloaking, cheaper than a Sky Ray. Might even work as alternative for stealth suits (although I like those models, too) with their burst canons.
Honestly, Tau have alot of fast attack choices, but they don't fill up with the same haste that our Heavy Weapons slots do. This fits in very well with the style of war I envision the Tau to use (i.e. my playing style).

It's not long enough. Look at any Tau vehicle, save the Manta/Tigershark and you'll see that its longer than it is wide.
This drone does not have the same look. I say slap on a couple of Piranha engines and some kind of tail-fin and it'll be fine.

It seems good to me though, sort of a heavy 'strike' UAV.

Excellent, they're keeping with the same naming paradigm.
