Default Tetra Question

I'm betting the answer here is no, but I have to ask in the off chance it's not.

Fast vehicles can move 12" and fire one main and all defensive weapons, or 24" and fire neither. Main weapons are Str 7 and above and defensive weapons are Str 6 and below... so what does that make the markerlight? Since it has no strength profile, does that mean these rules do not apply and that the Tetra can fire it's markerlight even when moving up to 24"? That would be real fine if it could... ;D

This is true, so defensive weapons are Str 6 and below including Str 0? Makes sense, it just would have been awesome if that was a nice little loophole. Ahh well, still a cool model/unit.
