When using support squads and heavy weapon squads do they all have to remain coherent and shoot at the same target or can they disperse like infantry squads and nominate different targets.
Help would be greatly appreciated since I can't find anything using the search function.
They must all shoot at the same target.
And I dont know what you mean about infantry squads nominating different targets either. Infantry squads must also shoot at the same target. You can not have your lasguns shooting at infantry while the heavy weapons shoot at vehicles.
It's worth a krak!
I think he means the squads within a platoon act like seperate units but are actually part of one Troop choice.
The 6 members of a Support squad must remain coherent and shoot at the same target. However if you choose to take two Anti Tank squads, then the 2 squads act as seperate units.
Hope that helps.

Each support unit operates just like the individual Infantry units in a platoon.
However the heavy weapon teams within each support squad must remain within coherency each other and must target the same unit.

... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
sorry if any of that was unclear, but Archaon knew what I meant. Thanks for clearing this up for me.
one more thing,
why can Anti-tank squads target different units and not other support squads.
what you mean anti-tank can split fire?. if there 2 squads of any sort then each 1 can target a seperate target, but the 3 in a unit must fire at one unit e.g anti - tank squad 1 at devilfish, anti tank 2 at hammerhead etc. or fire-support at kroot, and fire support at troops
