I think The targeting array doesn't have to be represented on the model, but thats just a guess, because im pretty confused with the pieces myself...

Nothing really.

There aren't any piece for most of the 'fish chassis gear. You got the sensor spine, the seeker missile and the landing gear, drones and that's it. FW did do a decoy launcher and flechette discharger too.

So the short answer is you don,t represent them on the model, but just mention it to your opponent so that he knows.

It's just an aerial, I put it on all my tanks. You could have it represent TA/MT if you wanted, but there's no bits for either so I say they don't need to be represented so long as you pay the points for them.

Well the codex on page 30 states that you must represent these upgrades on the devil fish vehicle but I don't ever! You can model them however you please and use the excuse "But there is no real piece to represent those things!"

If anyone asked me where it was on the model I would tell them the targetting array and multi tracker are in that viewing slot window on the tanks hull. On page 55 of the codex it is the thing that is painted red on the hull.
(On a hammer head I would tell them any and all upgrades are on the sensor thing on the front of the tank, where the burst cannon would go if it were a Devil Fish)

Yeah, that never made much sense to me. Something important like a weapon, yeah, but for other upgrades that really shouldn't be visible? :-\

So long as I paid the points for it, who cares? It's not like I'm trying to claim a rifle is a carbine.

exactly my point here, i saw the dex said you had to represent them, but i hear from most Tau players they just claim them. But then there are some places that play "What You See Is What You Get." But that mostly deals in terms of weapons...

Hey, my logic is this: If a Space Marine can put that whole "Machine Spirit" crap on their Land Raider without having to model it, I don't have to model my Multi-Trackers, Targeting Arrays, Flechette Dischargers, or anything else that doesn't come with the stock kit.

It's kind of hard to model a spirit though, and especially seeing that the spirit is within the vehicle.
