Default stealth suit marker?

okay this has bugged me for the longest time, what on earth is that extra little array looking thing that gets it's own base? Is it a markerlight token? a deepstrike beacon what?

You can probably use it for whatever you want. I just use dice to keep track of markerlight tokens and the only beacon Tau have access to is found on a Pathfinder Devilfish.

I just set mine up as an Objective marker.

Though, it would make a cool vehicle upgrade for ML or DP, don't you think?

The actual bit name/use question was answered in White Dwarf when they displayed the sprues.

It's an Objective Marker.

Though really it looks better when you use it for conversions imo.
It made/makes an excellent leadership drone, bits used on weapons, used on vehicles, etc.
