Ok so the Ayrian 4th Infantry is debating becoming the Ayrian 4th Airborne Infantry. I was wanting to get your ideas on using Valkryes in squadrons to add some mobility and armor to my entirely infantry army (plus have no fast attack). BTW im new here (kinda) so dont burn me to hard.

Valkyries are well worth the points, but remember, anything worth buying in the Imperial Guard is worth buying two of, if possible. Two valkyries minimum, or two vendettas, and a few other vehicles (preferably russes). A solo valk or vendetta will just go down in flames.

i was actually thinking 3 or more since i run no other armor. No russes no basalisks
Always use Vendettas over Valkyries. The extra points are deffinatly worth it. Heavy Bolter door gunners are also useful because when all the enemy tanks are dead you switch to gunning down elite infantry.
Taking only Vendettas is ok but they are relatively easy to kill. If you take 6 of them you can quickly eliminate anti tank units early on and leave the vendettas free to control the battle tempo. Taking other tanks in your list also helps as enemy anti tank fire is diluted particularly if you try and reduce it further at your first opportunity.
If you go first you can often thin out enemy threats straight away. Get your infantry to help out achieving this as well. If the enemy go first then considder outflanking and take an astropath to help out with this. If the enemy steal the initiative you have a problem but your scout move could save your bacon. Use it once you discover you won't be going first afterall. The scout move can get you out of line of sight to tank hunting units or at least the speed or terrain can get you a cover save on his turn one.
