Default Tank Shock

After searching the rule book I'm still not sure...
So I've decided to ask help from more experienced players.

Does a unit have to take a morale test if a tank charges them but doesn't finish their movement phase "in" the unit but continues on to...let's say charge another unit. And do the figurines in that unit have to move out of the way? ???
One caste for the protection of our race,
for their skills and strategies will defend us all.

One caste for the construction of a safe place,
for without their technology our empire would fall.

One caste for our faraway travels,
for their ships will bring us through the galaxy.

One caste for the talking at all levels,
for their smooth words will pave our road to victory.

One caste to rule them all, one caste to guide them,
One caste to bring them all together, and in the era of the Montíau, bind them.

In our galaxy there will only be the Tauíva.

If the tank goes into the unit at any time of the movement, its tank shock. It can continue into a second unit if the first doesn't stop it. So yes, they do.

Good answer Korill.

Careful study of the Tank Shock rules is essential for understanding this under-used part of the game. I encourage all and sundry to familiarize themselves with the Tank Shock system.
