Default List of contents inside the Skyray kit?

I have been hearing all this talk that the Skyray have all the parts to make a Devilfish and Hammerhead.

Does somebody have a breakdown of the parts that is inside a Skyray kit?

Does the Skyray kit really have all the parts to make a full Devilfish and Hammerhead? Does it have the turrent piece to fit the Devilfish burst cannon in?

I am planning to pick up the Skyray kit myself but I will be unhappy if it doesn't have all the parts for the Devilfish and Hammerhead.

Basically, they hand you a devilfish kit. Then, you pay $5 for a HH weapons sprue and the Skyray 1337 turret.

I made a modular Railhead/Skyray. Took some work, but I'm proud of it. Mace's guide is better though...

I bought a Tau Sky Ray last week and I can confirm as to what parts are in the kit with these photos below.

Unopened box
Inside the box
Landing Gears
Engine
Main Body
Front Page of Manual

Yes, I can confirm that the Sky Ray does have the Hammerhead parts.

Plus you get the Sky Ray spurce.

The instruction manual shows you the different way to build a Devil Fish, Hammerhead and Sky Ray from this kit.

The manual gives you step and step instructions for each vehicles like the Devil Fish.

To summarize what you can build with the Sky Ray kit.

Sky Ray - Yes
Hammerhead - Yes
Devilfish (From what I can tell you get the burst cannon, but not the gun drones)

LOL... so true.. all Tau players should have plenty of drones lying around :\ . This is interesting. I'm sure that if GW were trying to be a pain and make you buy more stuff they would have made a special sprue for the skyray that didn't include the HH weapons... then again they would have to make new molds... Just so you all know, if you go onto the GW online store you can buy the HH gun sprue independently for pretty cheap.

It will make it earier to make terrian for the Tau, like using a railgun as a supporting strut or something like that. It also gives a wider variety for making tanks. I have one on my to get list, second from the top actually.
