Default Does anyone know what the Pathfinder Marker Beacon looks like?

I'm working on a Pathfinder Devilfish right now, and I was interested in adding the rumored Pathfinder Marker Beacon. I've heard a rumor that it allows more accurate deep striking (!!!) and it's mounted on the new codex Pathfinder Devilfish. I was thinking of something like the sensor turret of the Hammerhead, but with a burst cannon there, I need something else.

Actually, the model is already a little different. I had a Forgeworld Twin Weapon Turret that I modified to carry a couple seeker missiles. Looks pretty cool! Makes it stand out from the Fire Warrior Devilfish.

Anyone with info on the operation of the Marker Beacon, feel free to speculate on it's appearance. I was guessing it's like a Markerlight.

I'm guessing it'll be "built in" and won't actually have an exterior feature. Although this is just my guess, I don't actually know for sure.

There's no inspiring pictures of a squad of heroic Pathfinders with a Devilfish hovering protectively nearby with some sort of beam coming from a new turret shooting into the distance in the preview codex?

There might be. I spent my precious 20 minutes with eyes glued to the Wargear section though. I know jack-all about fluff, special characters, or the hobbyist section.
