Nope, not with the current codex, but you could in the old codex with those official rules that allowed you to with the opponents permission. Even then they had special rules forcing you to take at least some infantry (due to the tank commanders not being able to see very well and troops being hidden in cover might attack and they need the infantry to spot for them).

Anyway, you can come closer with the Mechanised doctrine and perhaps the Tech Priest enginseer doctrine and a few others but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

But it might pack a punch and there certainly is the psychological element in facing loads of tanks. You could probably pack about 6 tanks if you tried in a 1,000 point force.

Actually, you can have an all-tank army. It is called the Armoured Batallion, and rules for it are in IAvol1.

Didn't they update Armored Company in CA 2004? The wargear names reflect the new Codex, so I'd assume the rules are now as valid as they were.

I was thinking:

HQ: commisar tank commander

Troops:chimera

oh and you can fit 6 to 7 tanks in that kind of army depending what weapons they have....but it wouldnt be a good idea as you can just armour every squad with melta guns.

Latest Chapter approved had rules for a Armoured company, also one of the recent White Dwarves has an update for this that includes doctrines for the Armoured company. Since there are rumours that in the far future there are plans for a Armoured company codex this might be something like the TVR and the TAR.
