Those are 800p that spawn 560p every turn.
Together with the Drone-Net you'd have 80 shots with BS3 and twin linked and numbers raising every turn. Pretty scary but as already said mostly an annoying and not fun to play against gimmick and not broken as in winning tournaments-OP.

While the Firestream Piranah Wing was ruled to be able to leave the table on the same turn it arrives, a previous FAQ ruled that units cannot leave the table on the same turn they arrived. I'm pretty sure the original ruling was to prevent flyers that arrived from immediately leaving again on the same turn, while the Piranah Wing has specific permission to ignore the general ruling. Unfortunately, GW did not state the intent behind either ruling, which flags it as a contradiction.

If detached drones count under this then the infinite drone loop doesnt work even if you can redploy every turn. Everytime the formation leaves the board it would include all the drones that had disembarked and they would just come back on the next turn. Ya it could still be helpful to replentish lost troops but it wouldnt create a scenario where you have 100+ drones running around...
If we say detached drones aren't part of the formation then you are shooting yourself in the foot slightly for Hunter Contingent since detached drones could help get the required 3 for coordinated fire.
Drones are a separate unit for all purposes once disembarked, this was reinforced in the KDK FAQ where it was stated that they drones do give Blood Tithe if killed after disembarking. Once the drones have detached they are nothing to do with the Piranha unit for the rest of the game. The drones should still be considered part of the formation but I am not sure that it would ever matter much that they are.
