Yes I believe you can outflank with a land raider if im not mistaken.
His rules state that *all* units in the army can use the Outflank rule. The point about specifying that dedicated transports can also do this is probably because, under normal rules, the unit for whom the transport was bought would enable it to Outflank as long as the unit began the game embarked on it. In the Kor'Sarro lists, this requirement would appear to have been waived.

Doesn’t it say that they replace their chapter tactics with the outflank rule.
So any unit that has "chapter tactics" now has outflank. Any dedicated transport that is being used with a squad that can outflank can also outflank.
So a land raider bought as a transport for a terminator squad can outflank, but a land raider bought as a heavy support choice cannot be used to outflank.
Isitused is correct actually.
Khans states that you are replacing Combat Tactics with Khans Chapter Tactics, which provides you with the Outflank rule. It then goes on to state that units with transports may also have the transports outflank. This means that you cannot outflank a vindicator, or outflank a land speeder, or a dreadnought for that matter. All things without Combat Tactics to begin with cannot outflank unless their rules allow them too anyways.
Vulkan's rules are the only ones that EVERYONE benefits from. The difference with Vulkan is it states that you remove Combat Tactics and everyone in the army, in the army being the key word i guess, benefits from his rules.

Thank You for the answer!
I don`t think that a vindicator meant to outflank, it is good enough without this rule.
What is important, the bikes, as they can be a very good lightning attack force from the sides. Better than Tactical squads, because they can move+shoot+assault at the same turn, but the tactical squad can not assault on the same turn when disembarked.
That confused me: any squad can outflank in dedicated transport, but it did not say a thing bout bikes. I guessed they do so because the bikes has the combat tactics that they can exchange for the outflank special rule. That`s how I figured, but I was not sure...
I plan to use Khan+command squad and a bike squad with an attack bike (loads of meltas) to outflank and pop the tanks from side/rear. I have 66% that they will come from the side where I want to, multiply by two The bikes are expensive enough to keep them in reserve and bring them in as they meant to be: Fast.
