The Lancer Elite is a 3rd-tier class exclusive to Valkyria Chronicles 2. They can be promoted from Lancer Veterans as part of the Lancer Class Tree. They wield more powerful advanced anti-tank lances. Due to their limited mobility and their powerful lances, lancer elites tend to take tanks head-on instead of going for the radiators, this is further emphasized by the fact Lancer Elites often get the Max Vs Armour potential that allows 1 hit kills to all but the heaviest of enemy armor.
They should not be confused with the "Lancer Elites" in Valkyria Chronicles, Valkyria Chronicles 3, and Valkyria Chronicles 4, who are just levelled-up members of the regular Lancer Class rather than a specific sub-class. Lancers simply gain the label "Elite" when they reach the requisite level in these games.
