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?

Thanks for the advice everyone. I've only recently started playing this new army that's built around berzerkers so I'm just starting to find new ways to ensure they reach their full potential in assault. I think I'll try out all of these suggestions.
Yeah I've heard a lot of good things about that set up as well. I think it might be slightly cheaper if you only pay for the two meltas (some people have told me to load up all 5 with meltas) but I too like the idea of raptors. I've never played an army with jump pack troops before and it seems like a fun way to do it.
