Default Reverse Fish of Fury

Well, in a recent battle, I encountered a problem where melta weapon wielding models were within 12" of my skimmer. As the disruption pods couldn't grant me a 4+ cover save, I came up with a variation of the FoF.
As the name suggests, it is the reverse of the fish of fury. Namely, the Fire Warriors are deployed between your vehicle and a enemy anti-tank unit within 12". While it is true that the vehicle must have its back/side face the enemy to do this, you gain a 4+ cover save. Best of all, as a unit must charge the same unit it shoots, the anti-tank team can't assault your fire warriors and, as they would need to move through the fire warriors to get to it, the devilfish! Definitely not useful most of the time as we have the d-pod for a 4+ cover save, but it can be useful in certain situations.
Anyway, this is just me sharing something I learned in a battle. If anyone sees any flaws or ways to make the strategy better, do tell.

I think you could drop the Drones on a couple of fish (like 2 min.) and the spread them out... I don't really know if that would work/provide enough obscuring.

If you used 6 Gun Drones (from Devilfish or the like) and put them on flying stands of all different heights (like using Vehicle and norma ones) you might be able to shield them. It would might also prevent Fire Dragons from then Assualting the 'fish instead, beacause of the Drone screen. They could shoot something on one side, and then jump over (the 'fish) to screen it.

In fact (I really kinda like this idea) one could use swarms of GD's to escort FW/Pathfinders in Devilfish and act as assualt defence once they disembark/reach an objective.

This would obviously only work as a viable replacement for the Firewarriors in higher point games ('cause really? who brings 3 DFs to a 1K game) and is completely theory.
