Default Attacking drones on vehicles??

I was just wondering how you would do this... From what I know they count as passengers when disembarking, they count as their own kill point when disembarked, they are effected by explosions and count as firing through gun holes or whatever. So how exactly does one choose to attack them and if they survive the explosion they then have to disembark and are easy kill points?? Correct me on any points please but it seems as if it's a easy win if they just kill a squad of piraņas and then hammer their drones?? Show what vital fact am I missing please

Yeah that all seems fairly accurate but i'm almost certain theres no way to specifically target the drones while attached to the vehicle without destroying the vehicle.

and it's only an easy win if your actually playing for kill points most people don't these days since they favor small elitist armies and makes the game unfair play for victory points instead.

yeah you cany specifically target the gun drones as they're are just one unit.

Just as a scenario say I lost 8 piranhas and no drones can they group to become a ash attack?

I've never tried and have never seen anyone else try but i don't think you can as far as i know only independent characters can join or leave other units outside of my experience this one.

Piranha squadrons are a special case as noted in the FAQ:

Quote:
Q: If a Piranha in a squadron is destroyed and its drones survive the crash, must all of the other drones in the squadron immediately disengage?
A: Yes, as they have to form a single unit.
If you lose even a single Piranha in a squad all of the drones from that squad bail. They cannot, however, join with drones from any other squadron in play nor are the drones of the other squadrons affected in any way.

Thats good to know but still doesn't make me want to play piranhas anymore than i do now i think that may even be a disadvantage actually if you could keep them seperate you could potentially contest more objectives with them.

which is the main thing i use vehicle mounted gun drones for a quick last turn dash to contest objectives assuming their still in play.
