That tactica was written using the old Forge World rules for the Skyray. The ability to "Alpha Strike" was removed in the Tau Empires codex. I left a note at the bottom of that tactica, but I will go make it a little clearer.

You can fire as many seekers in a single turn as you have markerlight hits- you could conceivably launch all your missiles at once if you had 6 markerlight counters. In any case, you may only launch one missile per makerlight counter.

And have an over-abundance of Markerlight Hits...

Note: If you're playing against someone that uses FW rules, it's a good idea to use the FW rules for the Skyray- It'll be your only Anti-Air unit.

GW obviously thinks that one seeker missile a turn is somehow useful... Unless we all play mass vyper Saim-Hann armies, which I doubt. Or a bunch of ravenwing landspeeders... :P

Cheers!
