The icon of the T'au Empire.

A Marker Beacon is a T'au vehicle system that consists of enhanced optical processors and long-range communicators.

With a Marker Beacon, a vehicle can accurately guide the deployment of T'au Battlesuit-equipped warriors dropping into battle from transports far overhead.

Devilfish assigned to Pathfinder scout teams are sometimes fitted with Marker Beacon systems, whilst all Tetras have one as standard.
