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

- Lone Wanderer:"What exactly IS a Chimera?"
Thomas Morgan:"Put simply, it's a co-opted mining rig that's been changed into an armored vehicle -- bigger and tougher than any tank we have in our arsenal. The Chinese fitted the vehicle with multiple weapons, reinforced the armor and outfitted them for long range."
