This topic have cropped up time and time again, and the answer is always the same; we do not know what it is.

However, it is believed that it is some kind of objective marker or a beacon of some kind.

That would be problematic considering it doesn't have a name....

I personally believe a Topic explaining that its whatever the hell you wnat it to be should be stickied. Maybe even include suggestions of what to use it for?

It's a WMD. Send it George Bush, he's been looking for them.

On a serious note, it had no meaning, but we think it might be for an objective marker or something...

i asked this question myself not too long ago, and since then i've decided it's either a landing beacon, a trip mine, or a portable sensor unit, but that's just me. you should use it for what ever you want.

The have blank Apocalypse unit sheets at the GW site ... Get imaginative (Or you could always say they're the Remote Sensor Towers from Imperial Armour 3, just more sleek and high-tech, and much more affordable ;D

Personally I think that it is a sensor relay that the stealths carry around when scouting and place it to monitor positions of passing units. Or it could be used to enhance signals to and from the stealths, so if they need to remote detonate a bomb but don't want a massive antenna next to it they use that. Or it could be a landing beacon for drop troops and Orcas. Basically anthing you want.
