Default Firing Gun Drones on Vehicles

While gun drones are attached to a devilfish or hammerhead they "fire as part of the vehicle ... in addition to any other weapons that would normally be permitted to fire"

Does that mean a hammerhead that moves must choose to fire either the SMS or one drone, and can only fire the turret, SMS and both drones if it does not move? Or just that the hammerhead and drones form a "unit", and the secondary weapon and the drones must fire at the same unit?

It says nowhere in the description that they take the place of the other weapon systems. You refer to the vehicle speed your hammerhead can currently fire as: normal without a multitracker or fast with one. Also, read the target lock description.

They're only treated as passengers for rules regarding the passengers specifically (like disembarking on a penetrating hit). They fire as if they're a part of the vehicle, but are not subject to shooting restrictions like the other weapons I believe. But then, there's also crew shaken and crew stunned...-_-...

Default Re: Gun Drones and vehicles

They ARE subject to the shooting restrictions of vehicles. So if you do NOT have a Multitracker, and move > 6", you cannot fire the Gun Drones on your Devilfish. However, keep in mind that since they are S5, they are counted as Defensive weapons.

It says in the codex that they may fire "in addition to any other weapons that would normally be permitted to fire."
I would think that it means that it is not under the normal vehicle weapon restrictions.

it was explained to me that the drones fire like having access ports to fire from, with range and turret limitations. (as in you can only shoot as long as it's not going to hit your own ship)

Default Gun drones as passengers:

So, as per the passenger rules - gun drones on devilfish and hammerheads can target seperate units without a target lock?
