Default Seeker missiles fired each turn?

I have been lurking for a while, have searched and waded through topics, and can not find that this has been addressed. If I equip a DF with one seeker, can that seeker be fired once each turn? Or is it a one shot per game weapon, as modeled, unless I equip it with more than one?
For instance...if I use my one Seeker on my DF in turn one, can it be called again during that game?

The TE:Codex explicitly states that the Seeker missile is a single shot weapon.

"Each [Seeker Missile] is a single shot weapon." (TE:Codex, pg 31)

Thanks...missed that! :-[
So is it generally considered worth it for the points it costs then?

People argue either way.

My belief is that because it can kill some forms of infantry before they take out your own models and earn kill point the cost is justified. I'm also considering taking some on pathfinders and using the high speeds to get behind vehicles and fire at the rear armor, wish me luck with that plan :P

stick 1 on a Piranha and move flat out to get behind your opponents tanks and you still get to fire the seeker into the weaker rear armour.

just so i don't have to start a new thread but if you get a markerlight hit on the rear armour of a tank does that mean that if you use that token for a seeker missile that it will hit rear armour?

Another question related to this; does this mean that the skyray can only fire 6 times in the entire game, or is the skyray some kind of exception?
