Default Tau vehicle question

A quick newbie question.

The skyray has a weird piece mounted under the hull. I have always assumed that this was a markerlight for the skyray. But i have since seen it on the hammerhead. But the hammerhead doesnt have the option for the markerlight. So i am a bit confused.

so a little help would be appreciated

thanks in advance.

It's not really anything. You could say its the targeting array but devilfish can have targeting arrays as well but don't have one of those sensor pods.

alrighty

but if you put this weird sensor looking thing on instead of the burst cannon, your losing the burst cannon for nothing?

that doesnt make much sense

Hammerheads and Sky Rays can't have a chin mounted Burst Cannon.


That piece is just targetting sensors that can represent a TA if you want, or just a bundle of sensors otherwise.
The markerlights on the Sky Ray should be on the "wing" tips of the Launcher array.

well holy crap on a stick

thank god you said that
i had to go rip the chin mounted burst cannon off my hammerhead and switch it out. I realized that i was looking at a white dwarf and that particular hammerhead had one. Stupid white dwarf.

luckily i realized that before i played a game with it, or built my 2nd hammerhead.
