The Chimera is the Imperial Guard's most commonly used armoured troop carrier. These ubiquitous vehicles are extremely durable and practicle, capable of mounting an array of support weapons. From withn the armoured confines of a Chimera, an embarked Infantry Squad can utulise the hull-mounted firing points to unleash a lethal fusillade of shots onto the foe, protected from all but the most destructive of reprisals.
Chimeras are a potent symbol of the might of the Imperial Guard and are fitted with a range of equipment, including searchlights to locate the enemy and massive bulldozer blades to clear a path for heavier battle tanks. With scanners and communication voxes, Chimeras are also suitable mobile bases of operations from which the Imperial Guard officers can marshal their forces.
