Ishamael 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.

DeathKlokk 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.

forgot they could even have marker lights, if there on pathfinders I always wonder why you'd completely waste points putting them any place else really.

especially when "any place else" in a Tau army should be moving anyway, double that for stealth suits and there tiny range.

if anything has jet packs they get any special rules relating to jet packs from the Tau codex, not the main rulebook, as the codex overrides the rulebook.

so unless jet packs in the Tau codex say they get relentless (doubtful since its older) then no, they do not get relentless, but then again they have no heavy weapons or rapid fire weapons, so it matters very little
