Default marker drones

Are marker Drones Relentless? I've been milling about it, and I did find that models in equipped with the Jet Pack are relentless per the BRB, but what about Drones.

This has been clarified for a little bit but if you're new to the forum then I'll help you out.

Drones take on the characteristics of the unit that they join. If they join crisis suit or stealth suit teams then they become jump infantry (jetpack) and are thusly relentless. If they join a team of fire warriors, pathfinders, broadsides or any other regular infantry then they are considered Infantry.

So if you want to move and markerlight targets then have your drones join crisis or stealth suit teams. If you're looking to run a stationary gunline but want some extra accuracy then you can have them join regular infantry but you cant move and shoot the marker light.

Hope that cleared things up.

You're very welcome. I just noticed you're not new to the forum.... sorry there. I didn't even look. But anyway, the best way to take advantage of this is to give your stealth teams marker drones. You can move and markerlight targets at the same time and with stealth field generators it makes it incredibly difficult for your opponent to shut them up at maximum range. I find it to be helpful.
