Preferably Volus, or support players. We have 2 Geth Juggernauts & my friend wants A Volus for support or a Krogan Warlord. if anyones interested let me know.

Yeah, this sounds like a great formula for an hour long partial extraction on platinum. You really only want to have one Jugg OR one volus. Both classes have bad damage potential, and if you need a volus to keep you alive, you are doing it wrong.

I understand survivability is your main concern but a game with 2 Juggernauts and a Volus does not work well. When I run Platinum games with less experienced players I often suggest the following team composition: Flamer, Ghost, Juggernaut OR Volus engineer, fourth whatever except a second Juggernaut or Volus.

The Ghost covers the Flamer casting chain overload on the flamers targets and then shoots whatever is in his sights. The Volus engineer places the recon mine in a strategic spots and leaves it there for the debuff, do not detonate it. The Volus should spam the debuffing proxy mine alternating it with the Shield boost for the DR buff . If you use a Juggernaut instead of a Volus, equip a rapid fire AR on him and unload it on whatever bosses are approaching thus drawing agro. When the bosses get close heavy melee to stay alive, the Flamer and Ghost should unload on whatever enemy gets near the Juggernaut.

Other general tactical advise on Platinum:
Stick together as a team and focus fire for the win.
Prioritize sync kill enemies.
Create and keep open routes of escape for yourself and the team
On objectives waves, stick together for Hack and Escort, split in two pairs for 4 objectives, 4 targets and the pizza.
Use equipment consumables, this is Platinum and it does not get more difficult, use them and it will make a huge differences for survivability and game completion time.
Your medigel, OPS packs, thermal clip packs and missiles are meant to be used, Platinum is the time to use them. Even if you use all 6 of each of them, the credits from completion allows you to be buy at least 20 of each of them.
