While you've found a different outlet for Markerlights, you must ask yourself a some questions:
Are you willing to burn an elites slot for a few more Markerlights, a slot hotly contested by the more versatile Crisis Suit?
At minimum with 3 suits, team leader, markerlight on the leader, drone controllers for each suit, then one marker drone for each suit, you're running 195 points. Compared with the 216 for a Pathfinder unit with a Warfish with landing gear, you have to ask yourself if you want to burn those points on the suits to get 4 markerlights, when there's a barely more expensive, more effective outlet in the Pathfinders. Also that Devilfish gets to be used for a Fire Warrior squad that didn't have one.
Until their points get reduced, I'm not interested in this different outlet for markerlights. It takes away a slot for a squad that does more damage, and it's less efficient than a different outlet in a different slot of the FoC. Relentless or not.

Hmm... the codex specifies that XV8 suits may not fire Heavies on the move but states that Stealth Suits have Relentless USR from the BRB. (pg 27 in the box)
Since the Stealth Suits are the ones able to have Marker Lights, you may have something here, Tervigonboy!
Checked the FAQ, nothing about it.

|DeathKlokk||Actually they have Marker Lights, which are Heavy. Since the Tau codex specifies that their particular Jet Packs do not work for Heavies then that is the rule you use.|

|aboytervigon||but does this extend to stealth suits do they get relentless|
