The rules state that 'Tank' and 'Guard Tank' are both Special units. However 'Guard Tank' is also Elite, which seems to make them superior to normal 'Tank' units, but does it have an effect in combat?

During the Counterattack phase benefits are given to Special units and Tank units. That means 'Tank' and 'Guard Tank' units are treated exactly the same and there should be no difference between them.

The only scenario when 'Tank' and 'Guard Tank' units are treated differently is within [13.3] 'Soviet Advance Priority'.

Actually I did expect that Elite units have higher combat values, did I miss anything?

I think you have it right.

Since we're slowing working on the second edition of the game, is there anything about this you think we should change?

Thanks for your fast reply!

Well actually I got the game last week and I am currently playing my first session. So it's a little bit too early to give any comment on the game.

However I am inevitably processing towards a decisive defeat but it's still really fun to play.

You will find that the Soviet Guard tanks keep pushing their way to the front of the line, making them really annoying, as they always seem to be in contact with units that haven't been tested or retreated yet. However, other than that, they are pretty much just tanks.
