Default Deep Strike Onto Yourself?

Had a minor disagreement the other day over Deepstriking. My opponent's Guard squad scattered onto the top of his Leman Russ. I reveled in their immediate destruction, only to be told that it is enemies that kill deepstrikers, but not friends. He proceeded to tell me that his unit was displaced off th edge of the Russ with the only penalty being that he lost a couple of men from his second ring (this sounded a lot to me like the drop-pod rules).

I, of course, challenged and read the DS rule...to find that it says nothing of landing on top of friendly units.

So, I am hoping someone can clarify this for me and provide me with a page reference I can show my opponent if this comes up again.

I think this was covered in an FAQ. The answer? Splat.

Q. What happens if Deep Striking troops have no choice
but to land on top of friendly models?
A. As two models cannot be placed on top of one
another, friendly models count as impassable terrain for
the purposes of Deep Striking.

Its the 40k Rulebook one you want.

Thanks guys.

I am not sure that this would have had an effect upon the outcome of the game. It was, afterall, a single squad of Guardsmen(women, actually) worth a glorified 80 points. Still splatting them would have made my life a tad bit easier.
