and MSU/horde + arty type lists (tyranid player, hence the five flamers on the XV8s).
The flamers seems absolutely justified to me. They can combo off your stealthsuits homing beacon, too!

Your math seems off to me. I will assume Cadre is using markerlight support to make my math simplified.
If over 9": 4shots(11drones + 2 embarked drones(fish))+burst cannon(fish)=56
If under 9" range: each drone gets an additional shot PER GUN. Devil fish also gets buff. 6shots(11drones + 2 embarked drones(fish))+burst cannon(fish)=82

Life tip:Learning to breath from your diaphragm can help you deal with nervousness. It has helped me profoundly. To learn how to do that I recommend to start this video at 13:46 and watching it to the 15 min mark. https://youtu.be/a2MR5XbJtXU

Tooling units with a same load out is my personal preference, too
, I cannot reccommend it to another player as an absolute. It makes rolling dice easier. It makes it easier to synergize the weapons to the task they are preforming. I have tried flamers on crisis suits with other weapons. It has been good for Overwatch. Also there is a meta opponent which justifies them. I think the flamers are alright here.

I actually love this support system. It cost 5 points, not 8. The OP crisis suits are less optimized by not having more shooty drones with it. His overall list benefits greatly. With his 4 drones he is gaining only about ~2.6 extra hits. That's about equivalent to gaining one unbuffered drone. So 5 points to gain 8 points worth an effect seems OK. Where it can get absurd is manta striking the crisis suits near a devilfish target. The math above (devilfish)gains an additional 1/6 hits before any reroll effects. So 82 shots pre-markerlight can turn into 41 hits (versus ~27.3 hits without dc). His crisis suits DC is his second DC. I don't think that's bad though. having only one dc feels like 'putting all eggs in one basket' to me.
