If it's the marker light, consider Darkstrider, same BS and only 3 points more, but the breachers could use his structural analyzer. You do lose a bit of durability in the armor save, to be fair.
What is the purpose of the Fireblade in the fish? Breachers don't benefit from volley fire.

Lore wrote:Oh that damned separate unit rule! Also is there a misprint somewhere as it says 6+ invulnerable for Strike teams & 5+ invulnerable for Breachers yet they have the same base save. Granted though this makes the guardian far less attractive so probably 11 strike and a cadre firebalde, if only there was a way to get a pulse accelerator in the mix? Maybe send in a team of pathfinders with their special drones as well, would need to be quite a big piece of cover though.

What worries me is the devilfish in and of itself has very little offensive potential, it's essentially a points investment in increasing the durability and mobility of another unit. To that list you could add stealth teams, embedded drone squads, and long range commanders. Pathfinders can also do well on foot just using their vanguard move which further diminishes the utility of a transport. In the case of breachers, vespid can very nearly provide the same profile, but far greater movement, range, and the intrinsic benefits of fly and deepstrike. As long as we have the capabilities of deepstrike units transports will remain of secondary value.
