1. Guided missiles - suppression and crossfire

Guided missiles follow all the normal suppression rules. So if a unit with a guided missile weapon is in range and has LOF to a unit in the target formation then it is counted for suppression purposes. It is counted even if it cannot fire because for instance - the target is not marked, or an aircraft (note: unless landed, aircraft never count as marked).

Additionally guided missiles count as having LOF to all units in a marked formation for the purpose of suppression, crossfire and when shooting as part of an overwatch action.


2. Coordinated fire

There are no requirements with regards which action from sustain, advance or double a formation takes.

If an action with a movement component is chosen there are no specific movement restrictions. You may move as normal in any allowed direction or manner. You don't have to move towards the coordinated fire target or even make any attempt to get any weapons in range if you don't want to.

The only requirement is that if you choose to shoot it must be at the formation picked as the target of the coordinated fire.

The target of the coordinated fire being destroyed or moving to a position where it cannot be shot has no impact on any movement component of the action chosen. It just means that you will not be able to shoot.


3. MARKER LIGHTS

A quick clarification on when marker lights apply. The do apply when one formation is shooting on another any formation. They do not apply to fire fight values.

The rules for marker lights specifically identify that the bonus is added to "shooting" and provide a bonus to "firepower." In the case of fire fight, the formation is taking an engagement action, not a shooting action. Additionally, firepower is a specific stat line for a unit, separate and apart from the fire fight value. The firepower stat is used for the shooting attacks, while fire fight is used in engagements.

Added a Tau FAQ covering some common questions. If anyone has any other questions they would like to see answered or feel the language or answer in the FAQ is either confusing or just wrong let me know by starting another thread in the Tau forum. I will lock this thread to keep it relatively easy to use.

Added an FAQ on marker lights to clarify when they do and when they don't apply.
