Default Hardened Fighters - Sentinel Question

I'm relatively new to the Guard and am currently working on an army list that includes the Hardened Fighters doctrine. When taking a Sentinel Squadron of 3 can I just upgrade one Sentinel with Hardened Fighters or do I need to upgrade the whole squadron? It would work better for me fluff-wise if I can just do one.

Thanks in advance!

I think you have to upgrade the entire unit - but the wording doesn't specifically say that you have to upgrade the whole unit.

I you dont have to upgrade the whole unit, you can do one or two if you want. Personally thats what I would do.

Is there any reason why you can't just split up the Sentinel group into 3 squadrons of 1?

That would solve your problem, and also allow them to go off on their own thing.

I don't read it that way. It says it's available to a Sentinel squadron at X points per Sentinel. I think that literally means the cost is X points multiplied by the number of Sentinels in the squadron (ie. X points per Sentinel ). If it said this skill was available to Sentinels for X points each then I think you could select it for individual vehicles.

I think this is the same principle as Stormies taking Meltabombs; they've all got to take them or none at all, and the price is just multiplied by the number of models in the unit.

I should have figured that out since Army Builder wouldn't let me do it. Just wanted to make sure. Thanks a lot for your input.
