Default Can you link drones to fire warriors or pathfinders?

How can you link drones to fire warriors or path finders? Drones do not come as equiopment and they are not characters so they can't join units.

From the Tau FAQ found at http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=14117.0

Q: Can drones attached to Fire Warriors or Pathfinders use their jetpack assault move?
A: Yes, the Drones can use their assault move to get to a different part of the unit, as long as unit coherency is kept intact. So they can move to the front of the squad in the Assault Phase - it's a handy tactic to use. Mace

You need to upgrade one member of the squad (same for both Firewarriors and Pathfinders) to shas'ui in order to get access to the armoury. Then you can get a drone controller and up to 2 drones - shield drones or gun drones.

Cool, then use them to get a bit ahead of the unit for a faster, longer charge to get into combat faster.....I don't want to get into combat with my firewarriors...back to the drawing board!

i don't think that they can use their assalt move because in the rules it says that every model in a unit must move a the speed of the slowest member

The FAQ says they can so they can.

As to the main question you upgrade one member of the squad to a shas'ui team leader and then purchase them a hard wired drone controller and 1 or 2 drones, either shield or gun drones. Just remember they only get one hard wired system.
