An anime adaption of the 2008 video game Valkyria Chronicles. In 1935 in an alternate Europe with somewhat different geography (identified as "Europa" in the official English releases to stress its non-historical status), a continent wide conflict wages between the two superpowers of the Atlantic Federation (Western Europe) and the East Europan Imperial Alliance (a hybrid of Czarist Russia, Soviet Russia, and Nazi Germany that controls the land north of and east of what resembles the Italian peninsula, commonly referred to as "The Empire"). During this conflict the neutral Principality of Gallia (which amalgamates geographical parts of Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemborg as well as military aspects of Finland) is invaded by the Empire in an apparent attempt to seize its vast natural resources. While the original game used stylized, semi-realistic, hybrid guns almost exclusively, the anime features several recognizable real world weapons. The anime adaption was poorly received due to low animation quality, especially with character faces, and deviations from the game's plot.
The following weapons were used in the anime series Valkyria Chronicles:
Maximilian uses a Nagant Revolver. The weapon's cylinder appears to be different from its real-world counterpart, though it is hard to tell if it is intentional or a mis-animation.
Model 24 Stielhandgranate
The Model 24 Stielhandgranate grenade makes an appearance in Valkyria Chronicles as part of the large military memorabilia inside the Gunther house. The grenade is described to have been used in "The First War" by Isara, it is used by Alicia. It is also shown being thrown into a room during the second opening song.
The RGD-5 hand grenade is seen in the hands of a wounded Imperial army deserter who uses it as a persuasive tool to hold Welkin and Alicia hostage. This hand grenade is standard issue to the Imperial Army.
NOTE: Valkyria Chronicles contains a large number of fictional weapons that draw inspiration from various weapons from the WWI and WWII period (and thus can easily be mistaken for one such firearm), but are not modeled after any specific weapon.
Fictional Semi-Automatic Pistol
Welkin, Alicia and Faldio make use of a fictional semi-automatic handgun as their primary sidearms, and as such it can be assumed that this weapon is the standard issue handgun of the Gallian armed forces (although it is not seen in any other hands but the protagonists). The design draws some aesthetic influence from the M1911 design.
Fictional Semi-Automatic Rifle
This fictional semi-automatic rifle is the primary rifle of both the Gallian Army and the Gallian Militia and are used by all military riflemen, most notably Alicia, Welkin and Faldio. A scoped sniper variant is used by Faldio, Squad 7 members and some Imperial snipers. The weapon draws aesthetic influence from the Gewehr 43 rifle.
Fictional Submachine Gun
A fictional submachine gun that looks like an enlarged MP40 is used by Imperial Army Shocktroopers.
Fictional Assault Rifle
A fictional short-barreled assault rifle appears as a standard arm of the Gallian Military Shocktroopers, notably by Rosie. It appears to be inspired by the AKS-74U.
