I also don't see a point in this...but Ok; I'll play along. ^-^ Also by "Pulse Carbine" you mean the Gun Drone? Then yes, the Gun Drone due to it's many uses:
  • Shooting the rear of tanks
  • Flanking
  • Bodyguard to Commanders
  • Deepstrikers
...the list is endless... ^-^

gun drones. shield drones can only be used by a drone controller... would be kinda wierd seeing a squad of 8 shield drones flying around... unless you had an independent character attach to that unit!

Gun drones. Unless GW decided to make the sheild drones explode with blast templates when they fix the drones rule.

Basically under the current rules, they're the only type of drone thats useful, and even then its only in squads.

SO when putting shield drones together you're not supposed to put the guns on?

Wow I learn something every day.
