Default Seeker Missile question

hey, i have a question about seeker missiles that came up in a battle a little while ago. it says in the codex that instead of firing a markerlight, a unit with a markerlight may call in a seeker missile salvo. does that mean that i have to fire the markerlight, then the missile, or go right to firing the missile?

I don't think it says instead. I believe you would do use the marker (from the successful markerlight) in the same way you would for any other firing unit.

ML>Declare>Missile(bs5)>remove

I believe the order is

Squad A: Markerlight @ Enemy A
Squad B: Declares fire on Enemy A
Squad B: Calls missile expending token generated by Squad A, then fires as normal
Missile A: Blows the heck out of target
Squad A & B: Celebrate

of course, if squad A's markerlight is networked, then they can call the missile on the target themselves.
