Default new skyray - guns on the end?

quick question

on the end of the skyray's missile wing bits does anyone have any idea what the things that look like horizontal fusion blasters are?

sorry if this has already come up but i didnt see a recent topic on the matter

Markerlights. I think it says so in the forgeworld page.

They're markerlights. Does anyone know if the markerlights are drone controlled (BS2) or pilot controlled (BS3,4)?

Most likely to be pilot/tank BS.

The Forgeworld model had them using BS4 - driver's BS and a built-in Targetting Array just like a Hammerhead.

IA 3 has the Sky Ray with a built in Target lock plus they can have standard gear except more seekers or multi track. I hope the codex version will be able to take multi track like Hammer Heads . That could be very handy.
