Manticore Rocket Launcher

Fortification
Aegis Line x2
2 Icarus Lascannons

Tactics
Put all the Chimera's in a row behind the Aegis Line so they get their 4+ cover save. All the Infantry Squads will be around or nearby the Chimera's to protect them. 2 of the Infantry Squads will be manning the Icarus Lascannons. The Manticore Rocket Launcher will be placed out of sight and bombing the area. I'd like to keep the massed Chimera's in the list.

To my personal aesthetic, wasting BS4 on flamers, borders on criminal.

The list is subject to all the failings of any other parking lot list. High strength barrage and deep striking assault troops come immediately to mind, although there are other counters.

Additionally, you are sacrificing the Chimera mobility for a static posture. A defense network might be a better fit.

Instead of using veterans and bs4 flamer squads you could use platoon command squads and special weapon squads inside your chimera's with grenade launchers. Then you could place auto cannons in the infantry squads and place them around your chimeras to keep them safe.

It looks better and you have a lot more bodies to shift than the prior incarnation. Additionally you saved enough points to increase your high str shooting output.
