The Chimera is world object in the Fallout 3 add-on Operation: Anchorage.

Characteristics

The vehicle is a mining rig that has been modified into an armored vehicle.[1] Thomas Morgan explains that the Chinese forces have fitted the vehicle with multiple weapons and reinforced the exterior.[1]

The player character may encounter Chimera tanks twice throughout the campaign, a pair off in the distance during The Guns of Anchorage and at the fuel depot during Paving the Way. Only one chimera is fought, the event taking place at the fuel depot. Walking into a Chimera while crouching will knock the player character down, causing damage.
