Default APOC emperors fist tank company

HI guys, looking for a little bit of help with the emperors fist, now i know that the company is broken down into groups called squadrons and one command. but do these " squadrons " follow the squadron rules in the rule book? or can the tanks in the formation act independently and gain the special rules as long as they are with the 6 inch coherency?

What does the Apocalypse book/Formation sheet say? Your answer should be there. Worse case aply the vehicule squadron rules found in the Rulebook which is 4" not 6" coherency.

I'm fairly certain the Apoc datasheet only requires 3 Russes. This may or may not be a squadron, as you please.

It's important to remember that Apocalypse was written for 4th edition, before Imperial Guard could take pretty much anything as a squadron, and the datasheets which group tanks together do not make them squadrons (unless otherwise specified in the Datasheet itself, of course, but I'm unaware of any which do this). They merely encourage the vehicles to keep a close formation in order to receive several benefits, without the downside of squadrons.

So them while in the formation they can still fire independently?

Indeed they can. They're still separate units, they just have to arrive from reserve together, and receive benefits for keeping close to each other.
