Default Elysian force, can they use tanks? (not as an obvious question as it seems)

Hi, I hope this isn't an obvious question, I know it seems like one but bear with me.

When sigmentum command sends an imperial guard detatchment to take a system, they send multiple regiments, like an infintry regiment, a tank regiment, an artillery reginment or one of the others.

Now, is it possible for an Elysian regiment being supported by a tank regiment that is deployed before the Elysians drop?

Of course. Or you can think of it as the Elysians supporting a regiment with more heavy armor. They would probably have somewhat different objectives, but that doesn't mean they might not end up on the same battlefield as some point.

Elysians have their own tank regiments anyway....

They just specialise in drop troops.

Do they get bonuses for Deep Striking or anything as a special force? Do they have a codex or their own rules I could find or buy? They look cool and I like their theme, I'll likely never be able to justify to my Fiancee a purchase from FW, but I'd like to dream.

Most current rules are in IA8 but they're still fieldable as a air cav regiment under the IG codex.

Here's an brief overview on what's different in IA8.

Their main thing is being able to deep strike & take Valkyries as dedicated transports plus their Tauros vehicles are sweet.
