Default Has the Rules of combat drones in vehicles changed in the new codex?

Hello,
I have a question regarding a rule in the Tau Empire Codex. The old one clearly stated that the gun drones that go with a vehicle (Hammerhead and Devilfish) use their proper firing ability during the game.
Has this rule being erased in the new codex? At least in the spanish version of the codex nowhere I found a clear reference to this. It is not stated in the description of the combat drones as a unit nor in the description of the vehicles like the devilfish, piranhas and hammerheads.
Can our drones use the HP of the vehicle the form part? Can be beneficiary of the combat computer add-on?
Answer will be wellcome.
Thanks for all.

Daniel.

Drones work as passangers in all cases (except shooting), so they do not benefit from any vehicle add ons. Drone still 'connected' may always fire as long as the vehicle may fire a weapon. I'm sure it is also stated somewhere that the drones for a unit when disembarked.

can drones riding with the devilfish use the same markerlight as the devilfish?

yes because it says that the gun drones shoot with the fish.
