Default Question on 4" Coherency

All right then here goes, I fill real dumb about asking this, but a question came up on an army list I posted on the Tau board that I didn't know the answer for right away so I went and read the rules (Vehicles In A Unit PG 73) and the Tau Codex pertaining to this question, but it is in the way the unit's title's are written that pose a legality for its use. Are Tau Piranha and Tetra Teams considered to be teams or squadrons, as this could affect how the unit's are placed during deployment and affect movement during a game, are they 2" or 4" for coherency?

Piranha and Tetra units with multiple vehicles are considered Vehicle Squadrons in all respects, and thusly use the 4" coherency rules.

They have Front/Side/Rear armour values, thus are considered to be vehicles (their army list entry even states this) - and as they are vehicles, they follow the rules for Vehicles in a Unit (Squadron) as detailed on page 73. Nothing vague there.

Thanks, I just wanted to clearly understand the rule, the only reason I asking is that Landspeeders in the SM Codex are listed as a squadron, but the Piranha and Tetra are just listed as team. Thanks for the understanding and not berating me for the question.

Squadron or team is just terminology, we're not darn lawyers But it is never bad to ask! What does count is that they're vehicles, like .mace said.

For a joke:
This reminds me of a guy who argued that in the rules it is written that you can shoot at 'models', while the tanks are not referred to as 'models', hence you cannot shoot at his tanks at all
