Default Anything stating Gun Drones disembark together?

I was looking at the devilfish box today and something came to mind. Is there anything stating that the drones on a devilfish HAVE to disembark together?

Common sense? After all, the two drones are taken as one upgrade to the vehicle, and function as one upgrade. As it says in the codex, when they detach, they form a unit of two..

Yes, they form a unit and so really should disembark into coherency.

I don't think it's explicitly stated anywhere but...

Ok, it was just the box art was a bit confusing. Thanks for the help guys.

that's like asking if you can have just half of an embarked squad dismount, and leave the other half inside the transport...

Oh, never go by the artwork!

The artkwork is just to impress people to buy GW products. Also, can drones take hits for the devilfish (when on the drone cradle)?

No, they're passengers when on the drone cradle, except they fire as vehicle weapons.

The Codex does say that 'they' disembark and 'form' a unit.
