Default Are ethereals useless for leadership/moral?

Heres a weird and complicated question guys.
is a leadership check the same as a moral check?

Casue a guy at my store said I couldn't use the ehtereal to re-roll checks to shoot at tagets farther away than the closest one. He says those are 'leadership checks' not 'moral checks' like is specified in the codex.

Is this true?
help me here guys.

Unfortunately, your friend is correct.* Not all Leadership Checks are Morale Checks. Ethereals can't help when it comes to Target Priority or Pinning tests. Technically, they can't even help with Regrouping tests. All they can do is give you a reroll for 25% shooting casualties, losing an assault, or being Tank Shocked.

This may be addressed in the new Update. When the Tau were originally released, the distinction between Morale and Leadership was not as important (no Target Priority).
