If you pass the save, the shot hit the cover and not the target. When shooting through one's own units, it is assumed that those units move out of the way or the firing model is precise enough not to hit allies.

If a target is partially obscured from the firer by models from a third unit (models not from the firer's unit, or from the target's unit), it receives a 5+ cover save in the same way as it was behind terrain.

[...] It's not merely that you are firing through a unit. You must ask the more direct question, 'is the target obscured'. In either case, I'd say no, so no cover saves for the tactical squad or the XV88.

Ok, I handle intervening models like terrain: If it obscures my model by at least 25% I get my cover save.
But the BRB says that strange thing with the gaps which puts my model in cover even if completely visible.
No 25% needed. Why am I then in need of it if there is phisically an interfering model?
=> No 25% needed in any case => Riptide behind Firewarriors get a Cover Save
But this simply seems dumb to me.
Way to "fix" this would be to imagine a model from the interfering unit standing in the gap. This sounds logically to me as the narrative would tell us the soldiers are in movement yadda yadda...
But I don't know how to convince my opponent if he doesn't share my opinion.
What rule or wording can i quote/show him?
