Default I need Help figuring out what this is!

We here at Battlewagon bits have a problem. :'( we cant seem to find out what to label a bit that comes with the Skyray box set as. As a Tyranid Player myself i am unfamiliar with what it may or may not be. after about 45 minutes to an hour of fumbling around with the tau codex i am still clueless as to what it is.

here are a few pics of what it looks like, any help as to what it is would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks again!

What you've got there is an aerial.

it's an aerial that can be used for multi-trackers, sensor spines, anything you feel like really, as long as it is consistent with the rest of the model.

Thanks for the information and subsequently getting all of those aerials that are laying around a name and a place on our website. ;D

Actually that's the vehichle multi tracker.

It's an optional upgrade for Tau Vehichles that is IMENSLEY useful.
The arial with three prongs is the Sensor spine.

oohh... that's what that thing is. I normally use it for a targeting array because I don't actually use sensor spines (a useless upgrade)

Falstead is correct. The bit you have outlined is a Multitracker.

Considering that the bitz are not fully labeled, you can use that as pretty much anything. I always just assumed it was just an antenna. Pretty much everythingin the Tau range has a similar bit, even though not all can take the same upgrades.

It is a multitracker, as most of the previous people have said, but I personally dont use a multitracker on my skyray, but i still put it there to make it look cool! 8)
