Default question on some of our equipment

Hi..i apologize for having to ask but i tried looking it up in the search engine and can't find the right answers...
1) For sniper teams, besides their added BS because of TA, the drones get an added BS from their spotter when the ML hits right?

2) When i call for a seeker missile on a markerlight counter, do i have to roll for it to hit?

3) (For tetra users) , since a markerlight is a heavy weapon, i can still move 12 inches and still fire it right?

4) Clarification for carbine armed FW, i can move 6" and fire ..right?...don't we do that with regular rifles too? what's special with them?

5) For skyrays with multitracker, if i move 12" can i still fire my MLs?

6) What is the meaning of life ;D

Thanks and have a great day guys

Yes, that is correct. Or the markerlight can give any of its other advantages.

Yes, but you hit on a 2+ so there is a very good chance you will still hit.

As the tetra is a skimmer you can move up to 12" (no more), and still fire all heavy weapons.

They can both move and shoot, it is just a matter of their ranges after moving. The carbine gets its full range after moving because it is an assault weapon, while the rifle gets its shots at 12" because it is rapid fire.

Like the tetra (and all Tau vehicles), the skyray is a skimmer. You can move up to 12" and still fire all heavy weapons.

There isn't one, there is only the question "how was life created?". There was no intelligent being capable of thought when it all was created. :P

All of these questions, (except the last one), could be answered from either buying a rulebook or the Tau Empire codex, get them sometime if you do not already have them, if you do look stuff up in the index before asking questions.

Well thanks for the answer novum...though even though i have the codex and rule book..each person have their own interpretation of the rules and stats...these questions came out during gameplay by "seasoned" players some of which are tau...i just needed more input as your answers were also my answers...it is always ok to ask and ask for clarification as this is what this board is for...helping other people in playing fairly and enjoying... i do appreciate you answer.

as for the last question it was for humor though some people will argue the fact that there is a question of "what is the meaning of life" but this is not the place for such debates...i do apologize if it offended you....thanks again

Yes with BS 5

Yes

The carbine has a range of 18" and added to the 6" move it goes up to an effective 24". The pulse rifle has a shorter range when moved but it has two shots instead of one.

Yes

Counts as having a BS skill of 5 but you can only fire them IF you have a markerlight hit.

the meaning of life is to get laid and make more life.
also to try not to die, so as to have more life.
also to achieve happiness, or at least a lack of discontentment,
so as to actually live, as opposed to simply existing.
it is finding appropriate means to achieve these ends that's the tricky part.

for the other questions- those other guys are
correct- so, what they said.
