View Full Version : Chimera info

21-09-2007, 17:00
For background for a story I'm working on, I'd appreciate any information anyone could point me toward regarding chimeras -- the IG tank/personnel carriers.
Things such as: how many crew, how heavy, how armored, top speed, and so on.
I've seen blueprint/schematics for SM tanks: land raiders, predators, etc. Anyone ever see anything like that for chimeras?
