Default Tau rules clarification

Please help with a few questions I have:

1) Can drones fire heavy weapons such as rail rifles and marker lights in the same turn that they moved?

2) If you have a squad of 3 broadsides, 2 have target locks and the 3rd has something else (multitracker, drone controller etc). If the unit shoots at an enemy target (so the non-target lock broadside fires at that enemy) and then the 2 target lock broadsides pick different targets, does this mean you can fire at 3 different units even though you've only paid for 2 target locks?

1) No
2) You pick target for whole squad , roll for leadership , then if pass it you can pick single target for each of the TL suits.
So yes you are able to shoot at 3 targets with such setup.

I have a rule clarification, with this conversion does the suit count as a having a target lock or is it lost as part of the twin linked fusion blasters?

I'd say that depends. If the owner wanted a target lock then he could point it out and claim it as there. If he didn't then he would just say that it's part of the twin-linked guns.

If the suit is a team leader, then he can hard wire the Target Lock. Otherwise the TL Fusion Blaster takes two slots and the Shield Generator takes the third.
