Default Codex Drone?

I was skimming through the codex a few minutes ago and I saw a drone that looks like it has a multitracker stuck on the bottom. What is it supposed to be? A remote targetting drone?

Still looks cool though, I have some spare multi trackers and drones so I might make a real version, not just a picture version.

There are more than a few pictures in the codex that are not real units. Such as the Etherial with a jet pack. Hopefully this will not be a problem in the new codex. Cheeseman is right, just a conversion.

The Ethereal with a jetpack is justifiable though, its probably not a jet-pack, but a form of grav chute. But gravchuting an Ethereal into a rabble of hostile forces isnt too good.

Its a jet pack, same or larger size than stealth packs and the same build as crisis ones. However jetting an etherial into combat is not a good idea, you also notice bodyguards. Not a very fluffy idea, not included in the rules but a nice picture that was printed in the codex. The Tau are in their 1st edition after all, the new codex will make their second edition and hopefully it will remove such things.

I thought it was a creative way of displaying a shield drone.

Page 7, on the right.

Drones are used for many tasks, not all of them related to combat. It is possible that this is some type of communcations or scanning drone.
