Default Sniper Teams

Hi guys,
I didnt understand the deployment of sniper teams. Do the drones have to be cooherancy with the spotter or can they move independently?

I'm pretty sure they need to be coherant as they're a unit although i'm not sure and will have to check.
Hope this sheads some light on the subject

The drones remain in coherency to eachother, the spotter may stand his ground so find a good cover spot for him. I think that's how it goes. Good luck figuring it out.

Good cover for the spotter but you want to make sure he still has a clear line of sight for use of the network markerlight he is equiped with.

Hi, thx for replies.

Where it is written that drones can move with out coherancy to spotter.
Btw, I read that snipers drones count as infantry. Is it right?

Sniper teams are all the one unit and must remain in coherency with each other however you can separate individual teams when you chose two or more sniper teams as a single heavy support choice but the spotter and his three drones MUST be in coherency the same way as any other unit with drones and drone controllers as far as i know the only time drones may separate and operate on their own is with vehicles like devilfish and piranha.

No you said they you were pretty sure about it but had to check i said i was sure and since theirs a few people saying otherwise i thought it would be good to come in and put some decisiveness on it and i also added in the little bit about the teams being able to separate.

Anyway whats the big deal am i not allowed to agree with you or something or answer a question that you answered but kinda wasn't maybe that sure about?

is there a problem here or what?
