Default Markerlight question

Are Devilfish able to utilize markerlight hits to boost BS, also, must they use a separate hit counter than the troops which disembark from it that turn?

Thanks, looked in the codex but couldn't find the explicit answers so I just figured I'd be certain.

And remember: the drones are not part of the devilfish.

It's surprising how many people I've seen get this part wrong.

Using MS on the fish as it is, so not a huge issue there.

I almost cried when I saw a guy who had them all glued down with what looked like six litres of superglue. They're removable for a very good reason. I'm talking to you, Dawn of War.

I'm much more surprised to see many people trying to disembark the "Drones" wielding SMS and BCs from their Hammerheads and Skyrays....

Which brings up another question: Would the SMS count as part of the devilfish for markerlight purposes? I'm pretty sure it does, since the drones can't disembark, but I guess it's possible the drones could still be counted as separate.

SMS and burst cannon are not drones!

They are a 360 degree weapons instead of gun drones, so yes they benefit from the devilfish marker token.
