I think it said that all Tau models have to take a leadership test or fall back.
But then it says in the manual that all vehicles without leadership scores are exempt from taking tests.
So does that answer your question ^_^?

Hehe, that would hurt.


No, because in the Codex it say every Tau on the Table top . . . being in skimmer does not really count because they are not on the table top. They need to be deployed.

that would hurt indeed That's exactly why I don't play with ethereals, I think it's a bad idea, especially against space marines with loads of units with jet packs and tanks.

So vehicles without Leadership are unaffected. Big deal. Tau vehicles have Leadership 7. Read your darn codex, its the last page of the Armoury etc. under "Tau Special Notes."

Correct. Vehicles never test for POF, nor do units that are inside transports when the Ethereal is killed. The leadership value for vehicles is included only for reference, as there are currently no cases in which a vehicle would have to make a test.

I just had this strange image pop into my head of a dozen fire warriors piling out the back of a Devilfish and running away as it drives towards the objective. Pilot says: "Hey you retards! Get back here!" :
