Should also look at Article 396 which tells us, Yes if it's a factory assembly.

Kinda a suggestion that if he is using a cable method to look in each Article called out in T. 396.10(A) but if it's single strands of wire as identified in T. 310.3 or T. 310.6 he would not be able to comply with the (B) part of 396.10 and not be able to use it in residential. And, Yes tom triplex probably would be the best approach. IMHO

If the circuit is 120/240 and there is any chance of a present or future metallic connection between the two buildings you will want to use quadplex.

In My Unhumble Opinion (IMUhO) UF on a messenger makes one ugly installation.
