one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Id rather have a hammerhead. It doesnt run out of ammo, and the gun can change wether its better against ppl or vehicles.

My marshal told me to tell you to say that to his face.....

What about instead of Armament Destroyed result knocking down one missile could you not take out one of the markerlights?, as it does say it is armed with them.

Well, the Chaos Space Marines have the chaos gods on their side, while the Space Marines have Games Workshop on their's.
So one has the most corrupt, twisted and souless entities in existance helping them while the other gets the chaos gods.

Is a markerlight a 'weapon system'? I have no idea.

Markerlights are weapons. They're listed under armament, they;re listed in the Tau weapons list, they use all the normal rules for weapons (except they deal no damage and have associated special rules) They're weapon systems.

Skyray's indirect weapons come into their own in cityfight. Park it out of the way and let everyone else score your marker hits, then rip off some BS5 krak missiles against anything on the board

What do you mean? Which is better, which should you take, are they available?

I'd have to double check, but I think the skyray only has SMS as an option. Either way, the SMS is the best choice since if your sky ray ends up in line of sight of something within 18: you're doing it wrong.

Now as to whether gun drones count as weapon systems, I'm inclined to say yes. They're listed under armamament, and it's not as though there isn't a precident for vehicle upgrades doubling as weapon systems. Just if you deploy the drones then they don;t count anymore

Sky rays can have Just twin burst cannons, I think because the It has It's own markers and It's own missiles you'll want to be In the open most of the time to make sure you unload your ammo over the duration of the game, but overall I'd have to agree I'd take SMS over the BC's points permitting.
