Default Heavy Gun Drones. Can they be used from the armoury?

Hi there. I have converted two heavy gun drones from the devilfish doors and I plan to use them for my commander. However, the IA3 book only have rules and point cost to use them as a heavy support unit.
Do any of you know where can I find the rules (if there are any) to choose them from the armoury?

I never heard about the Heavy Gun Drones being in the Armoury for Drone Controller options. Heavy Gun Drones are a Heavy Support choice.

Have you heard anything about the Armoury, or is it just a wish?

If I recall correctly, after the gun drones were created but before the IA3 book was released, there was a set of experimental rules that allowed you to replace a number of drones in gun drone squads for heavy gun drones. However I can't recall exactly if there were any more rules in that document (since I only saw it once). I think I saw that option listed, but memory is deceptive anyway.

If anyone can't point me where to look, I will just repost this in house rules alongside with some suggestions

Perhaps they could be like the Drone Sniper Squad. You know, have a Tau with a controller module with three drones. (For rules you could follow around roughly the same rules that are built around the Tau Drone Sniper squad and say that TWO teams of Tau Heavy Drone Squads make up a 1 Heavy Support option. The reason I say two is on account that it is heavy support and therefore more powerfull than Drone Sniper...I think. Its just a way to even the scale so that whatever opponent you pull these guys out on, won't give you too much hassle about it.) I mean, its the best way that I could think to justify it in a game without TOO much protest. (Even if it turns out that you cannot use them in a game, then at least you have cool looking models. ;D )
