The Chimeraâ€™s design is based upon the Kairiola, a vessel holding tremendous historical significance for the Caldari. Initially a water freighter, the Kairiola was refitted in the days of the Gallente-Caldari war to act as a fighter carrier during the orbital bombardment of Caldari Prime.
It was most famously flown by the legendary Admiral Yakia Tovil-Toba directly into Gallente Primeâ€™s atmosphere, where it fragmented and struck several key locations on the planet. This event, where the good Admiral gave his life, marked the culmination of a weekâ€™s concentrated campaign of distraction which enabled the Caldari to evacuate their people from their besieged home planet. Where the Chimera roams, the Caldari remember.

The Caldari Carrier.
The Chimera is the only shield tanking carrier, now that the Nidhoggur has been reworked into an armor tanker. It can fit a very strong tank which matches or even sometimes exceeds that of the Archon.
It used to have a tiny model that was smaller than a Megathron or the similar-looking Rokh, and it was a running joke that newbies would mistake a Chimera for a battleship. It has since been fixed (unfortunately).
