Default Usage of Shield Drone

Please correct me if I am wrong;

I have a Stealth Suit Team consisting of 2 burst cannon, 1 fusion blaster, 2 shield drones. 10 Space Marines fires rapid fire so that; 20 shots, 15 hits, 11 wounds.

I allocate wounds 4 for 2 burst cannons, 2 for fusion blaster and 5 for 2 shield drones. Fusion blaster saves all, Burst cannons saves 2, drones saves luckily 4. That means Fusion blaster and 1 shield drones survives, but all burst cannons dies.

Can I kill the second drone instead of 1 burst cannon? If not, does it mean that shield drones are for 2 purposes;
a) they are just additional models for allocation, but cant be used instead of dead models.
b) can be used for no save weapons.

P.S. is it same for independent chars?

must admit i don't give my stealth team shield drones, i give them to crisis teams for allocating str8+ weapons. would rather lose a drone than a suit.

Thx but, my question was about shield drone rules, not about stealth suits. You can imagine them as crisis suits.

Please anyone help me?
