Perhaps not the right forum, but after a significant amount of searching, I'm confused to the skills and modules that actually influence Sentry Drone range.

Drone Sharpshooting - 5% / level
Drone Link Augmentation - Changes what range the sentry engages at, but not the actual range.
Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing - 3km / level, (affects Sentries?)
Ishtar HAC bonus - 5km / level (affects Sentries?)
Omnidirectional Tracking Link - % increase range/tracking

Those are what I've tracked down, I'm not sure if EW Drone Interfacing and the Ishtar HAC bonus influence Sentry range?

Is there anything else I missed?

Drone Sharpshooting: does only effect your optimal range of your drones, not the range you can control it. (optimal is higher (i.e. about 30km), but you can still control it at 45km)
Drone Link Augmentor: increases the range where you can control your drones (optimal the same, but with 1 modul you can control them at 60km (order them to attack)
Electronic Warfare Drine Interfacing: increases just the control range (3km /lvl). works on all drones.
HAC bonus (sorry i dont know, but it should)
Omnidirectional Tracking link: increases optimal and tracking

you have to notice the difference between control range and max/optimal range.

with no advanced skills your default conrtol range is 45km. this is the maximum range of you to the target at which you can order your sentries to attack. Some sentries have even higher optimal range than the your control range. To control the sentries at their optimal range you need one or more DroneLinkAugmentor and/(or Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing.

If your control range is i.e. 45km and an enemy starts attacing you from outside of this range and the sentries are out, the sentries start shooting at it (if set to aggressive). you cannot switch targets out of your control range, but the sentries will still fire and target a new one, if the first is dead.

All skills (if not stated otherwise) effect drones. They just dont effect fighters, which are not drones anyway.

Ishtar with HAC V and drone warfare v gives 85km control range, I am getting 77km with both skills at lvl 4. This applies to Sentries and all other drones.

As far as i know. Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing does effect all drones. 3km per level.

I enjoy my drones reaching out to 54km on none gallante ships such as the ishtar

Along with almost every contested system in the Caldari-Gallente Border Zone, the Caldari State has also requisitioned the Ishtar heavy assault ship. Nanny nanny boo boo.
