Default Marker Drone

Hello all
I have a question, what is a Marker Drone
Is it just a drone with a marker light? I have heard that it will be in the new codex, can some one tell me about these (possibly) amazing units?

Thank you in advance
The Mothman

P.S I have done a search and found no dirct info on them, just them being mentioned

Marker drones are supposedly drones armed with markerlights. I beleive they can be attatched to pathfinders and stealth teams.

Needless to say, they are in the new 'dex. They might also be Forgeworld creations.

Codex: Tau Empires - Marker drones here are different from the Forgeworld Marker Drones (yes Lanfeix, there was a Forgeworld Unit, though they they were different models)

The new/upcoming ones are the size of normal gun drones, whilst the Forgeworld Marker Drones were the size of the Heavy Gun Drones - and were basically those with a markerlight instead of one Burst Cannon.

The New marker drones - can be selected with drone controllers I think. Standard drone statline, with a targeting array (and possibly a target lock?). That's about all we know/guess. Check the rumours board sticky..
