Bulldog Light Tank: Can switch between cannon/target painter with a deploy command
Siren Frigate: Can switch between Blaster/Negation Shield mode with a deploy command. When in Negation Shield mode, any damage dealt to it will repair instead.

I don't know if this is place to give an answer this question,but I do.Ares' convert deploy is required.

[UNITA]
IsSimpleDeployer=yes
Convert.Deploy=UNITB
Primary=whatever it is
Secondary=different from primary

[UNITB]
IsSimpleDeployer=yes
Convert.Deploy=UNITA
Primary=PainterWeapon
Secondary=different from primary ,if you wish

;Gatling logic works the best with this laser painter unit , if you can manage to code it.  Very Happy

[PainterWeapon]
Damage=1 ; a small positive number, 1 is OK  Very Happy
Range= as you wish
ROF=as small as  you can
IsLaser=yes ; more common  
LaserInnerColor=255,0,0 ;red
LaserOuterColor=255,0,0 ;as above, red
LaserThickness=2 ;is enough ,another ARES tag.
Warhead=PainterWH
Projectile=InvisibleLow ; for example

[PainterWH] ;do not forget to add this at the end of Warheads list !
Verses=%3,%3,%3,%3,%3,%3,%3,%3,%3,%3,%0 ; for example
CellSpread=.5; is enough
ProneDamage=% as you wish
AttachEffect.Duration= ;up to you
AttachEffect.Armor= ;less than 1, 0.6 for example
AttachEffect.FirePower= ; all these up to you if you wish
AttachEffect.Speed=;all these up to you if you wish
AttachEffect.ROF=; all these up to you if you wish
AffectsAllies=no


For MO's Siren ship, a special armor type must be declared

[ArmorTypes]
magic=%-50   (-50 is an example, but must be negative, that means all positive damage weapons WHs collide  with this armor type,will  heal it,instead of damaging it.


[SHIPA]
Armor=light
IsSimpleDeployer=yes
Convert.Deploy=SHIPB
Primary=whatever it is
Secondary=different from primary


[SHIPB]
Armor=magic
IsSimpleDeployer=yes
Convert.Deploy=SHIPA
Primary=maybe none for game balance
Secondary=none,same as above
Speed=0 ; this maybe arranged by AttachEffects also...

;I don't write here more  about AEs , this is an another branch....



I don't know if I forget to write  additional necessary   tags.But it is OK,I think.

Unit conversion, as the code already given above. Basically you get a completely new unit after deployment that inherates the old unit's health percentage and owner. Certain weapon and tags won't work on converted units, i.e. chrono, mind control, spawner etc, remember.
