Default Remora Drones and Positional Relay synergy?

A simple question really, but would a Positional Relay aid a squadron of Remora Drones in reaching the board faster?

The rules for flyers in the IA III calls it "on station," but states that it works the same as a unit held in reserve.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Yeap, the PSR applies to fliers, and it is a must to carry if you run a Manta Death Blow Cadre.

Thanks you for the clarification, Khathecleric. ^ ^

You've piqued my curiosity though; what are the specifics of a Manta Death Blow Cadre?

About a 4000 point army, half of which is the Manta itself.

You know what its like, when a marine army has a unit come down by drop pod, and ten power armoured super soldiers arrive with earth shattering force from the drop pod?

Now imagine something the size of a small starship doing the same thing, with more guns than a titan, comes swooping low over the battlefield. It blocks out the sun as it hangs in the sky, burst cannons chattering, Ion batteries sending arcs of energy smashing into the enemy ranks, and with a crack that deafens half the enemy army, rips a titan in half with its rail cannons.

Now, to make it worse, the bay opens, and Tau battlesuits drop out, gunning down the enemy who have been left confused, dazed, unable to function by such an incredible entry onto the battlefield

Of course, in game terms it makes all the Tau fearless, without going into specifics :P

Not to mention, in game and IRL, hideously expensive. :P

Makes sense... I'd just never heard the term "Deathblow cadre."

Up to a max of 50 XV8s or 25 XV88s, according to IA3...

It's been updated since IA3. I don't remember the numbers though.

The rules for the Death Blow Cadre and the updated carriage capacity (and the amount of space each unit takes) is in IAA.
