Default Farsight Enclaves rule question...

A friend of mine who is also interested in the Tau was thinking of playing with Commander Farsight. However, Farsight's rule "Breakaway Faction" is slightly confusing to me. It limits certain units to be 0-1, among them "Broadside Battlesuits" and "Piranha Skimmers". Now, since these units may be fielded in teams, does this mean that you would be allowed a maximum of one unit of each, or one model of each? It seems to me to restrict them to one model, or it would have said "Broadside Battlesuit Team" and "Piranha Light Skimmer Team".

Please tell me I am wrong, since he was hoping on having a 3-man Broadside team as his heavy support, wanting to use as many suit models as possible.

Thanks for the help.

It also says "...the following units count as 0-1 in an army led by O'shovah....."

So yes, you could take a single team of three Broadsides.

The 0-1 choices refer to a squad not, a unit. In a farsight army since Broadsides and Pirahnas are 0-1 this means he can only have 1 squad of each. It doesent matter how many model he wants in the squad as long as he only takes one squad

It seems that my definition of what "unit" means is different to everyone else's, but despite this we all mean exactly the same thing anyway.
