you have an orca? wow - sounds like a cool use of breachers
I use my devilfish as an orca. I'm working on 3d-printing one though.
Problem with the orca is that it has crap weapons, and it costs *BAD WORD DELETED!* of points to both field it and fill it up.
It IS pretty cool to move 55", get blown up then have 6 full breacher teams with 4 heavy gun drones rain down on the enemy though, especially since your transport blowing up is not that bad in 8e when you have such a large number of models in it.

1 Squad always go with a Darkstriker and 1 Guardian Drone (This is perfect to kill important squads with T4)
The other Squad goes with a Guardian Drone and Marker Drone (With this Squad i try to kill units with T3, block assault units or try to kill Heavy weapons in the back of the enemy)
In the case that there are a lot of enemy squad that can assault your breacher Squad, i assault first with the Devilfish to the squad that i don't going to shoot yet. Next turn leave the Devilfish of the combat and shot with Breachers.
The first Squad have the advange of -1 to T with darktriker, and i ussually shoot the marker light with him (+2) to repeat the 1 of breachers. In case that Devilfish stop 1 squad but there are more that assault your Breacher Squad i use Photon Granades (2 or 4) depends to try to survive... Why? because the next turn with Darktriker i can leave and shoot enemy in the face.
To finish i should say that i use always 2 squads of XV25 with homing beacon... in the 2º turn comes 3 crisis with 3 flamers and 6 shooter drones and Farsight with 2 shield. The enemy Friking out looking Tau at 5' destroy all xD.
P.D. I wanna test Aun'Shi in 1 Devilfish with Breachers
Honestly, I tried that. I put up one breacher team and aun'shi against belisarius. They all died without hurting him, and then two of my fusion crisis suits one-shot him.
