What happens when a unit deep strikes into a friendly unit or tank?
The deep striking unit dies. Your own models are classed as impassable terrain.
It's in the GW FAQ available from their site - they're a good starting point for any rules question you might have.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Just to add in the Rulebook page ref: P.15, first lines of second paragraph of "Movement Distance".
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
Basically if the coordinates on the tabletop are occupied by the existing base area of anything else it becomes an invalid area to move onto and since you can’t stack base areas the deep striking model cannot fulfil its obligatory role of deploying so it becomes destroyed. (Barring any special rules of course, like Monoliths.)
The Reserves rule says that the model “must” come on so if you can’t achieve this then the model cannot take any further part in the game.
You can’t even approach an enemy model closer than 1” unless its in assault.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
