i just thought up something. the hammerhead has a primary weapon (railgun or ion cannon) and a secondary weapon (burst cannons and SMS). also it states in the codex that no upgrade my be taken more than once, since the hammerhead doesnt have drones, can the hammerhead take a pair of gun drones? also says that the hammerhead can take any upgrade from the tau armoury and its always equipted with a targeting array (nore the Bs is already included above). doesnt say anything on taking extra gundrones
and if we could, where would you put the drones? i was thinking of making a frame on each side of the hammerhead, the frames will hold the gundrones in place.
what do you guys think about it?
aslo instead of just normal drones, i think vehielces can take shield drones over the gundrones,
this is a rule i think will work with the shield drones, the vehiecle counts as hull down until a 1 is rolled when taking the cover save

This is really nothing new. Yes Hammerheads can take Gun Drones, always could. Where you put them is really up to you and how good you are at conversions. I've even seen someone just put the Drones where they normally go for a Devilfish and model the secondary weapons somewhere else, which I think works pretty well.
No, vehicles can NOT take Shield Drones, just so you know. Nor should they be able to.
Well there you go, the answer to your question already. I wouldn't suggest taking the upgrade, as then your HH gets too pricy, and the Drones generally wont help anyway, but if you feel like it then by all means go ahead.
I agree, not worth it. Only time I've ever put gun drones on a hammerhead was in a special Tank only game (everyone had just one tank with a 250 point limit). I actually had a pair of gun drones position themselves behind a predator and took it out.
They might be decent if you had like, 4 or 5 hammerheads/devilfish, so that you would have 5 or so 2-drone squads running around to annoy people...but they couldnt do much more than annoy people.
you know what i getting realy board of saying this but it never was an extra option, it just done in a strange way to fill out the wargear section.
it has been cleared up in the IA3 and will be in TE when it comes out. the gun drones are secondary option just like SMS or burst cannons. please dont go maul your hammerhead for something which isnt even worth it
