Berzerkers and Raptors

I was thinking about a 1500 point list that would include Berzerker squads moving in rhinos with a unit of Raptors outfitted with 2 melta guns coming up behind. I was wondering if it would be possible to effectively use these units in tandem, having the rhinos move towards a transport and disembark while the raptors jump over and blow it up with their meltas so the zerks could assault the squishy things inside on the next turn.

The problem is raptor squads are quite expensive for what you get and this would make my list very specialized, basically having to attack one unit at a time. What are your thoughts?

It is certainly a very viable tactic although you don't really need raptors, just something to trash mech. Which all lists need anyway, but raptors work just fine if used right. But I wouldn't rely solely on them for tankhunting just as I wouldn't rely solely on zerkers as my troops.

But your tactical implication of the 2 units is sound.

Btw, I love your name.:biggrin:
