Default Extra Skyray seeker missiles???

I know that the skyray is expensive as it is and not really neccessary on the table but is there anywhere in the codex that states that we CANT take the maximum of 2 more seeker missiles on the skyray? that would make it have a total of 8 seeker missiles and last a bit longer on the table.

Yes, under the extra support systems for a vehicle it DOES NOT list the seeker as an option. All other vehicles is does.

i think so...but u shoul invest that onto unit more i think...crisis battlesuits? could have squads of them with twinlinked railguns and missle launchers...it compensates and has more bang for ur buck in the long run...but protect them from infantry

Crisis suits cant have Railweapons though. Possible he means Broadsides of course.

Yeah I think he is referring to broadsides, possibly suggesting forgoing the skyray completely to have broadsides in your force. If that is the case then I would actually have to agree with him. If not then I have no idea what he is saying lol.

To be honest, a squad of 3 XV88s and 2 Railheads will cover all your heavy support needs. Unless you fight treadhead Guard who run masses of heavy tanks. In that case 2 teams of 3 XV88 and 1 rail head.

I like fielding a heavy support point filled with sniper drones personally, just that many more railrifles on the table make SM opponents nervous, never mind they are such terrible shots...
