Default Imperial Guard Command Chimera

Has there been any exploits into a possible command varient? I was considering combining two Chimeras into a single vehicle (either double-width or double-length) and adding a whole bunch of sensors to it to represent a regimental command vehicle. Not sure of what bonuses outside of 'cool' factor it would provide, aside from maybe an improved communications deal, but this was something I wanted to try and possibly get feedback on.

Fluff-wise; the Command variant of the Chimera just have more antennas e.g. more and better communication equipment. There aren't any bigger than normal Chimeras.

Perhaps with Company Command, but what about at higher echelons, such as Regimental?

Still the same size. Mostly they like to get a superheavy tank like a baneblade when they are that high up.

Same thing. This is the Imperium; they won't ever double the width/length/height any vehicle for anything. If they wanted a bigger vehicle, they would just go for something that does already exist e.g. the Leviathan Command Vehicle. Or maybe a Baneblade but they aren't for mere Infantry Regiment Commanders.

This is actually for a mechanized regiment (all infantry squads are mounted in a Chimera), but I can see your point. Perhaps I should invest in one of those vehicles then, though the Super Heavy might be a bit of a stretch...

Nah, it has to be a commander from a Tank Regiment or a general at least to have a Baneblade or anything heavier than a Command Chimera.

i would expect a mobile command unit to be either a chimera with a huge anntenea array on top or a large radar dish (like in the cities of death strategem section

That's what I was thinking as well.
