Chapter 10: Under the Ice is the tenth chapter of Valkyria Chronicles 4. The combat mission in this is Defense of the Centurion.


With Crymaria's attack having knocked the Centurion's main reactor offline, the ship was rendered dead in the ice, with not even Chief Engineer Dunois knowing how to repair the A2 reactor.. Though Captain Morgan had managed to hide the Centurion in a crevasse before all power was lost, Imperial forces quickly found the Federation Soldiers. Captain Claude Wallace and Squad E deployed to defend the Centurion from the Imperial squad, led by Chiara Rocino and Nikola Graf, while Riley and Dunois stayed behind to repair the Centurion's backup reactor.

Allow me to brief you on the upcoming operation

"The Centurion has fallen into a crevasse. Engines are offline, and we're stranded. That means the ship can't provide support. Squad E will sortie from the deck, intercept the enemy, and buy us time to do repairs... Though it appears that enemy paratroopers are dropping in from the top of the crag. The bright side is they're defenseless while paradropping. A sniper can shoot them down. There is higher ground to line up a clear shot at the paratroopers... Which you'll need, because they're also dropping explosives onto the Centurion. The ship's in no state to take direct hits, so prioritize intercepting those bombs."

Location: Glacial Crevasse

Description: Protect the Centurion by taking out paratroopers and bombs. Send snipers up to higher ground for a clear shot. Ship Orders are unavailable, and the operation will fail if the Centurion is hit by at least 3 incoming bombs.

"The Centurion's fate is in your hands now. Please keep us safe, Squad E."


  • When equipping your snipers for this mission, do not give them the LF-ASR-series Sniper Rifles; they lack the range to destroy the parabombs before they hit the Centurion.
