'Saviour Protocols: If a DRONES unit is within 3" of a friendly T'AU EMPIRE INFANTRY or BATTLESUIT unit, you may choose to allocate any wounds to the drones instead of the target unit'
In other words, it works exactly as if the drones were temorarily part of the target unit for the purposes of wound allocation, the drones would still get their saves.
I've used shield drones a lot in my games so far and I find them very nice for soaking wounds off of other targets.
If anything I think I preffer them to gun drones.
It's not in the book. It's in the FAQ/Errata.

and 74 – Saviour Protocols
Change this rule to read:
‘Saviour Protocols: If a <Sept> Drones unit is within 3"
of a friendly <Sept> Infantry or <Sept> Battlesuit
unit when an enemy attack successfully wounds it, you
can allocate that wound to the Drones unit instead of
the target. If you do, that Drones unit suffers a mortal
wound instead of the normal damage.’
Ah, well, than I shall neglect to mention that to my friends
But seriously, did they not also errata anything about mortal wounds? maybe invuln saves now work with them? hmm, seems like a hasty fix, I'll probably ask to keep running it as pre-errata with my group for now till they have time to put more thought into it (I assume they are very busy trying to re-balance all the armies at once right now).
