Default Gun Drones & Markerlights

Okay, lets say I crisis suit unit that contains gun drones as well. If I use a markerlight to increase the BS of the unit do the gun drones benefit as well? In the FAQ it stated that gun drones on Vehicles do not, but I was thinking the reason for that is because it stated that in the codex that the drones fire independently from the vehicle.

Yes- because gun drones are a tau unit....

It's kind of misleading because kroot are a tau unit, their just not of the tau race...

Yes, but not just for the reason Scar gave. In the new codex, markerlights increase the ballistic skill of the entire unit - and drones are part of the unit.

Of course, they can also be a unit on their own, and it works as normal there.

With my kroot puzzle-ment do you know the answer because I feel some clever opponent is going to try to pull that off.

I'm not sure what you mean - do you mean why Kroot can't?

It says in the codex only tau units can benefit and a vespid strain leader squad can. This seems to be saying that kroot can't- they're in the same army, but not the same race.

Kroot can not use marker lights.

Basically. Think of it like this - kroot are given limited orders, and instead work towards the grand plan of the battle. Therefore, they don't carry the extensive comms equipment that strain leaders and other Tau units do.

Would a Commander within a group of Kroot be able to benefit from Markerlights, or confer the "Tau" status to the Kroot he is with?

Damn, thats a sticky question. I'd say no, because I believe it specifically states Kroot cannot benefit.
