Default Markerlighting Markerlights?

With all the tacitcal chat about the new Codex, I've decided to let you in on a possibly deadly tactic. Using a Firewarrior Shas'ui qith a hardwired target lock/markerlight to light up a unit for Pathfinders. Then using the Pathfinder Markerlights to upgrade a further squad to BS 5, remove cover, adn all that good stuff. My questions is, does anyone else think this will be possible, and will it be a viable option do you think?

I've heard no, but I'd like to see it in print. Having a unit like the Skyray designate for Pathfinders could make them extremely good. The Skyray can designate with a BSF for night missions, or increase Pathfinder BS, or any other goodies. I don't understand why it wouldn't be allowed, but that's the word, unfortunately.

Isn't this markerlight cycling? According the rules, you can't.

Yep - Markerlights may specifically never spot for other markerlights.

The book states that markerlights cant add a bonus for other marker-light hits-

each is a seperate to-hit roll at the user's BS.

its a better i dea to use marker lights to guide your pathfinders carbines with some extra lights you can easily make them bs 5 with the enemy unit testing at -3 ld for pinning

You can't markerlight your own squad...so you'd have to get a Shas'Ui with Marker Drones to do that :P

The final answer is - you can't markerlight cycle (that would be insane. Think about it.).

In which case, tactic was refuted, thread locked. See sticky:
