I've encountered this queory where it says very little in the Rulebook.
say I've got a Tau Squad disembarked from a Devilfish, when it reaches my opponent's turn. she wanted to shoot at the Fire Warriors behind the 'Fish. at that time i thought that there would be no TP test due to firing through the 'Fish because of it's high AV.
so here's my Question:
Does a Squad have to take a TP test to shoot at the Enemy Squad behind it?
any help will be appreciated
Yes it does, this is a common tactic for both eldar and tau.
Remember you even have to take a target priority test if you were trying to shoot past the devilfish at another vehicle.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
Yes, a target priority test must be taken.
This is a very common mistake made. You can declare you're shooting at "large targets" which allows you to ignore any small targets for target priority, but you can never ignore large targets. This is of course stupid if the squad has no tank busting weapons, so in my group we don't require this if the squad has no weapons which can not at least glance the vehicle, but this is definitely a gentleman's rule, not the rule in the book.
If you check out the last sentence of the paragraph which deals with "Firing at Large Targets", you'll find the rule there. You can't ignore a large target in order to shoot a smaller one further away.
As usual, GW hides their rules rather well!
