Chapter 08: The Crystal Sea, Part 1 is the first part of the eighth chapter of Valkyria Chronicles 4. The first combat mission in this is Army vs. Navy Mock Battle. This is also the first chapter where you can assign your own leader, provided they are a Corporal.
- Snowy Hill
- To the Crystal Sea
"Pleasure to work with you, Captain Wallace. This is a mock battle between Army and Navy."
"The village will serve as our combat zone. It's just one inhabited island out of many on the Crystal Sea... But don't worry about collateral damage. This town has long since been abandoned. Your objective is to get past the navy's defenses and capture their base camp. Several soldiers have taken the hillside and are laying an ambush for you now. If you can confirm their location, you'll be able to wipe them out with mortar fire. The Centurion will provide support. I'll give you more details once combat starts."
Description: Defeat the forces of the Edinburgh Navy in mock combat by capturing all their base camps. Use the "Radar" Ship Order to locate enemy soldiers and adjust your tactics accordingly.
"All right, that covers the briefing. Squad E, prepare to engage."
- This is the first map when Ship Orders become available. Ship Order availability also extends to skirmishes, but doesn't apply to main story missions that occur before this chapter.
