Follower robot count (research) increases the maximum number of follower robots that can follow the player at any point in time. This limit counts for Defenders and Destroyers; Distractors do not count against the follower limit.

Remember that the cumulative effect starts with 10 due to researching combat robotics giving +4 to max followers.
