Hi Nikolay,
Fixed charge.  The polarizable ones have "pol" in their names.

I should mention that Chimera 1.7 (development, daily build version) has been updated to use Ambertools 12, including newer force fields.  The default force field in Chimera 1.7 is ff12SB. For all the gory details, one should consult the Amber documentation, but there is some information here:
