Default Help with Sniper Drones Rule

Hello, I am from Spain and past Friday I bought the new Empire Tau Codex.
I have read it but the entry regarding sniper drones is not quite clear to me.
The codex clearly says that Sniped drones are an Infantry unit.
My question is must the sniper drones maintain squad coherence with the controller or only between then?
If they must have coherence of 5cm/2inch. with the drone controller, the usefullness of the unit is less that if the haven't.
Please help me to clear the rule.

Unless otherwise stated you can assume they need to maintain coherency. How i see it anyway.
Wins: 46
Losses: 6
Draws: 4

Yes, they must maintain 2" coherancy.

They are a unit and maintain coherency normally. There is nothing special about the controller. That would be like a marine squad all having to maintain coherency with their sergeant.

You can do this:

D - C - D

or this:

C - D - D - D

Either is fine.
