Augustana-pattern Infantry Close Support Chimera
The Augustana variant Chimera replaces the limited vision blocks in the driver’s compartment with forward and side viewports, protected by armored shutters. This variant gives the driver excellent all-round vision to spot threats in urban areas, and allows the vehicle maneuver with finesse to lend close support to advancing troops.
Replaces: Reinforced front armor with Close Support Tactics
Close Support Tactics: The Chimera and one infantry unit may each spend a minor action to move one zone together; the infantry unit automatically takes cover behind the Chimera.
