Default Tau Drones

If I'm shooting a unit with 2 drones, and there are four wounds to be dealt to the unit, I know the drone takes 2 wounds, but does the other two wounds get sucked in by the drones as well, or do they get applied to the unit?

Every time I play against Tau, we run into this arguement. I'm not sure exacty what they are called, but I do know they are 50pts each.

Any help is welcomed!

all hit are evenly distributed, however drones get hit first. For example, if there were three hits, both drones would take a hit and one crisis battlesuit would also take a hit.

Thats one posible scenario, but drones now follow the majority save rule, so its possible that the wounds would go on to other models first. In any case hits must be allocated to every model possible first before a model can take a 2nd hit.

this always confused me, what if one battle suit and two drones were wounded five times for example?

It would be a wound for each drone, then one for the suit, then one each for the drones again.
at least, that's my understanding.

So if I understand this correctly, a drone counts as a 1 wound item part of the unit and it suffers the wounds first b4 the rest of the wounds are distributed?

**sigh** No, you have it right but drones only have one wound. If you have t omake more saves than there are members in the squad, then you start the cycle over again.
