Default Drones disembarking on pirahna's

I can't seem to find an answer in my rulebook or codex, but when you have a squad of piranha's disembark there drones, the drones have to all disembark at the same time. All the drones that do so are 1 squad correct, but do they all disembark in unit coherency, or do they all have to disembark within 2 inches of there respective piranha?

both, they have to be in coherency because they are a squad, but it says in the codex that the drones deploy within 2" of there vehicle so there you go ;D

The only problem I could see is if the piranha were at the very tip of the 4" coherency for vehicle squadrons... :

About this, another question.
If the drones disembark, due to the destruction of their piranha, are the other forced to disembark too?

Unfortunately yes, as far as RAW goes. Doesn't make a whole heap of sense but its how the game goes.

Doesn't this mean that when a piranha of a squadron gets destroyed/disembarks, all of the drones disembark at once? But then they all then form the same squad don't they? If both are true then it's not so bad... :P

That is correct. The drones will ALWAYS form into one big squad.
