Default Hammerhead Drone Question

If a Hammerhead is equipped with the SMS Drones or Burst Cannon Drones is it possible for them to detach and act as an independent unit? Also are they able to reattach back to the Hammerhead?

My buddy is a newbie Tau player and says they can but I really wanna be sure. Thanks everyone.

SMS and Burst Cannons are not Drones at all. They are on regular undetachable weapon mounts.

Gun Drones may detach, but if they do they form a separate unit (worth another kill point) and they stay so until the end of the game.

Detatched gun drones do not give out any Kill points if they are killed.

Yup just another reason Kill Points don't work. War gear should never give a kill point. That's my opinion, and I know it is not the way it actually works.
