Tailwind is largely unnecessary on Skarmory because most Electric Pokemon are fast enough already. It also has better support options out there. Why is it not using Roost for recovery and Sturdy to potentially survive fatal hits at full health? It needs those things to function:
-Stealth Rock/Spikes
-Whirlwind
-Roost
-Brave Bird/Taunt
Nature: Impish/Careful
EVs: 252 HP/232 Def/24 Spe or 252 HP/232 SDef/24 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Shed Shell
Ability: Sturdy

Lanturn's stats lean towards defensive sets; otherwise, you're better off using Rotom-W:
-Scald
-Thunderbolt/Discharge
-Ice Beam
-Heal Bell/Thunder Wave
Nature: Calm
EVs: 52 HP/252 Def/204 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb

or
-Substitute
-Charge Beam
-Surf
-Ice Beam
Nature: Modest
EVs: 52 HP/252 SAtk/204 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb

or
-Rest
-Sleep Talk
-Scald
-Thunderbolt
Nature: Calm
EVs: 52 HP/252 Def/204 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb

Rotom-W:
-Thunderbolt/Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Hidden Power (Ice/Fire)
-Trick
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

or
-Thunderbolt/Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Will-o-Wisp/Hidden Power (Fire)
-Pain Split
Nature: Modest
EVs: 144 HP/252 SAtk/112 Spe
Item: Leftovers

or
-Substitute
-Pain Split
-Thunderbolt
-Hydro Pump
Nature: Modest
EVs: 236 SAtk/20 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

There are better Electric Pokemon out there than Emolga and Luxray, like Jolteon, Zapdos and Thundurus-Therian, heck even Electivire and Eelektross. (there are a lot more, but I'll stop here). Due to species clause, you can't use 2 Pokemon of the same species on the same team:

Jolteon:
-Thunderbolt

Aggron isn't good in OU because of its common weaknesses. Dragonite or Salamence should replace it because they're immune to Ground and synergize well with Skarmory:
