Default Tau sniper drone rules clarification

I've been playing against Tau just lately and my oponant (the Tau player) when useing a sniper drone team, he hides his spotter at the back of the board and sends out his drones. is this legal or should he have to keep 2" coherancy between the whole team?

Yes, the spotter must be within 2" coherency of the drones.

Yup, as mentioned above and be sure he isn't moving his snipers and shooting in one turn.
I once saw a tau player in one turn try to JSJ away from spotter and fire a sniper drone!
That would be nice but... er, not allowed.

Oh, hes cheating you. Dreadsock him, force the rulebook in his face til he stops. Unless its by accident.

Drones must hold coherency with the spotter, and are armed with Heavy Weapons. As a note, they are also considered to be Class: As owner, like all drones, therefore they count as the spotters type, Infantry. Therefore they can not, under no circumstances, move in the assault phase.

Oh yes, they can! They have WS2 and so are perfectly legal for performing assaults, provided they didn't shoot in the shooting phase. (Close assault wouldn't be my primary option for their use though...)

Cheers

If I'm not mistaken, this question is answered in the Tau FAQ.
