Default Does a Skyray have Unlimited Seekers?

hello, i was just wondering, does a skyray have unlimited seekers? or a limit of 4 like the other tanks?

i think it is a dumb ship if it doesnt have unlimited. y loose a heavy slot for a tank that has the same equiptment as somthing else can have? i would spend the 40 points and get 4 missles on a railgun then loose a heavy spot for somthing i can buy normaly.

No, it has 6 Seeker Missiles, just as the model shows. Once it runs out of seekers it cannont shoot anymore; but it can still fire it's secondary weapon and markerlights.

Dont forget it can pop off all 6 of its seeker missiles off if it paints a target. Instant dead 4 marines.

...But a definate waste of Seekers. Seekers are best saved for Open-topped, Light, or Medium Tanks, and units that need to be whittled down ASAP. These are my two personal choices for throwing around firepower with Seekers.

Actually the Skyray cannot do this, if you mean 1 ML hit to launch all 6 missiles at the same target.
You still need 1 ML pr Seeker missile

Hmm, forgeworld rules always had it as one markerlight hit could pop off as many of its own missiles as it wanted. Verified anyone?

EDIT:
I was looking ath the old FW books, my bad :/
