Seeing as i cannot find definet rules on armoured company, can i use valkrye's in a armoured company army?
As far as it goes, *if* you use armored company "codex" (or better to say add-on) then you'll have to stick to it and units it places under you're command (and as far as I remember AC is quite old - it didn't have Valks and/or Vendettas).
Also bear in mind, that 5th editon killed AC better than any enemy it could face.
Unless, that is you'll, try to build something similar on a base of newest codex (troops mounted in Chimeras, squads of russes), then by all means you can use Valkirias/Vendettas.
In the IA vol.1 book there was an armoured company army list. This had many things including armoured fist squads in troops, and a little something called an Impaerial Navy Air Support choice in the heavy support choice. Although back then there was no vendetta and the valkyrie wasn't included as an option for the support choice there was the lightning and the vulture. A lightning is much like a vendetta, it sacrifices the armour, transport capacity and 2 twin linked lascannons for an autocannon and the flyer rules. There was also the vulture which was a more powerful version of the valkyrie but with no trasport capacity.
You could use the IA vol. 1 list and get some air support but admittedly the IA vol 1 list isn't as powerful as the current guard codex. Their armoured fist squads are normal infantry squads without grenades that cost 20 points more than a squad of vets in a chimera. The flyer rules are also "with permission only". You could try it though.

The Armoured Company army list is now very outdated and is no longer tournament-legal. But for friendly games, why not. However, there are no Valkyries or Vendettas. Your only available units were Leman Russ tanks (variants: Demolisher, Vanquisher, Conqueror), Hellhounds, Basilisks, Medusas, Griffons, Chimeras (and Salamander variants). If I remember correctly, you could have Chimera-mounted troops as Elites and Leman Russes were one Troops choice each.
Google around for the .pdf of the army list, it'll be around somewhere.
As you need non vehicle troop choices to claim objectives the armoured company list now doesn't work well in 5th edition. However the new guard codex alows you to take vehicle squadrons in both the fast and heavy slots and your infantry can be easily mechanised so who needs an armoured company list anymore?
