Operation Northern Cross acts as the intro and prologue chapter to Valkyria Chronicles 4. The combat mission in this is called Engagement at Milt.
The battlefield is a mostly open grassy flower field with a dirt road running though it. There's a footpath on the west side of the map inaccessible to vehicles, but is also blocked off by indestructible barricades. In addition, there's another dirt path that runs through the buildings of Kane's Farm.
Raz is the only unit available at the start, and starts in the SE. Allied reinforcements will also arrive in the south and SE.
Unlike most other missions, there is no briefing for this chapter, though the mission objectives can still be seen in the "Mission Info" screen.
Location: Milt Outskirts
Description: Imperial forces have been detected in the outskirts of Milt. Take command of Squad E and eliminate the enemy.
If obtained A rank, receive "Capped Bullets" accessory (+3 aim, +3 vsArmor).
