Default Sky Ray Question

My question is this. Is a sky ray useful in a mech Tau army with no other markerlights in the army besides the networked one that comes with it. Also would it take to make it work in a mech Tau list.

Not really for antitank. It will only launch 1.5 missile per turn. It also is likely to be hit. However if you are using it for a mobile markerlight platform you will get two mobile markerlight to support a fish you can get 24 BS 5 shots and 24 BS 3 shots. or 48 BS 4 shots if you want to use one for each squad.
Also if most of its seeker get used the opponent will not consider it a likely target and now it counts as scoring unit which might be forgotten. Thing is its missile of launch them in a large strike to eliminate things early is not going to happen if you do not have more markerlights. In conclusion it is still useful but other things may be more useful in your list.
BTW if you want to now more about using skyrays see this thread http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=17751.0
