Chimera
Spoiler
Image
The Chimera is the Imperial Guard's most commonly used armoured troop carrier. These ubiquitous vehicles are extremely durable and practical, capable of mounting an array of support weapons and protecting embarked Infantry Squads from all but the most destructive of onslaughts. / GW Website (06/27/12)*, - 40K Armies - Imperial Guard


Known Variants
--------------------------------------------------------
Manticore Rocket Launcher
Spoiler
Image
Deadly long-range artillery, the Imperial Guard Manticore Rocket Launcher and Deathstrike Missile Launchers are incredibly destructive war machines. While the Manticore launches a salvo of rockets, each of which disperses into multiple warheads, the Deathstrike fires a single, incredibly dangerous missile.

These fearsome vehicles are favoured by Imperial Guard commanders who like to pound their enemy into oblivion with relentless firepower from the other side of the battlefield.

Hydra Flak Tank
Spoiler
Image
The Hydra's main role is defending mobile Imperial Guard attacks from the unwanted attentions of enemy aircraft. Even in the abscence of airborne threats, the Hydra's long barrelled auto-cannons are still a potent weapon against lighter vehicles and infantry. / FW Website (06/27/12)*, - **

Feats

Attributes
--------------------------------------------------------
- Amphibious capabilities:
Spoiler
“Within the first week, Barcham had seen combat three times. In the worst of these engagements, he lost two of his four amphibious Chimeras to ambush in the muddy estuaries. The insurgent heretics had surged out of the rainforests and into the river, armed not with javelins and machetes, but with lasguns and bolters. The slow-moving Chimeras languished in the river, taking pot shots from the riverbanks.” / Flesh and Iron, p.4 - **


Firepower
--------------------------------------------------------
- Breaking nautical craft formations:
Spoiler
“They lost three boats to the Chimera-mounted autocannons before the enemy fire slackened and seemed thrown into disarray.” / Flesh and Iron, p.334 - **
