Sorry to contradict you, Calgar, but the commander loses his IC status if he comes with drones. The drones and commander become a unit and can be shot at as normal.

However, he *retains* his ability to join and leave squads, taking his drones with him. So he can still join a squad, but when he does he;s a unit and can be shot at, him and his drones.

This is why I don't like giving ICs drones. I prefer instead to just detach a pair of drones from a nearby transport or piranha and have them move in front of the commander, acting as a bullet shield without making him lose his IC status.
