The Chimera was trying to back up but was not moving fast and the Choas forces were closing fast. The main gun an autocannon and the heavy bolter opened up with automatic fire spraying bullets into the infantry coming at the Chimera. The Choas Marines knew instantly the Chimera was not some regular unit it was a veteran unit.

Weapons fire started to hit the Chimera as the Choas Marines started to fire on it. rounds started to pierce the front armor of the Chimera killing the driver and heavy bolter gunner. The sergeant knew he did not have much time. He hit the button for smoke as the canisters fired off in front. that should give him time to call on the Vox box. Deploy he yelled at the others as the back ramp dropped. he pulled on another Handle a flare shot high into the air alerting others of the fight. Las fire erupted as the two forces started to fire on either. His men were dying fast.

The sergeant got on to the Vox "Black Iron 2 to Black Iron 1 Contact bag mix nuts (meaning Choas Marines and Guard infantry.) need support now." he said as he looked back seeing the last of his men fall. "Corection, fire on my location it has been a honer" he pushed a button pining his location. the Choas forces heavy weapons team fired an anti-armor missile at the Chimera blowing it up.
