Default Drones as part of infantry groups and screening

Hello hello, please excuse me if I'm getting certain details wrong as I'm a pretty green player and am still trying to wrap my head around everything.

So here's what I've been thinking, I know drones (particularly free drones like those attached to devilfish) can and often are used for screening fire and assaults, but I had a question about drones that are attached to a Sha'sui.

Now, if I needed to or decided to screen with the drones attached to a Sha'sui and they were assaulted, does that count as if the whole unit was assaulted and therefore locked in close combat? Or does it mean that the drones simply get sacrificed and I can load back into the APC and take off (or screen again with the drones from the APC).

Basically, when taken as a wargear option for a Sha'sui, do the drones count as members of the unit as far as being assaulted or since they are wargear are they more akin to the drones launched from the devilfish, ie a separate group that happens to be following around the Sha'sui.

Drones are breity much useless so don't use them unless the come from a devilfish , but I don't know why you would take one because they are also useless so only take the if you need the points other wise don't take them
