- Hands up, who of you did expect the character who was previously set up as being a damn good sniper to use her skills to accomplish something important in the climax? ;-)

- Excuses if the panel flow is a bit confusing here. (You basically have to read them as two columns in a newspaper.)
This time, I added arrows to make things clear.

- "Perkele" is a Finnish expletive.
(And yes, I know this from Scandinavia and the World.)

I mean, it was a good idea; that’s how they killed Lord Nelson.

However, sniper range is AA/machine gun range, and those can and will give Camila a very bad day.

Military uniform that clearly marks someone from afar as the person in charge = obvious target for enemy combatants who seek to "decapitate the dragon"

Of course, the point is kinda moot when your only sniper drops her only weapon into the ocean...

But as we'll soon see, Camilla still has some aces up her sleeve...

Well things aren't looking too great for them. On the plus side, some very nice looking jittery effects there. XD

Whoops indeed! :-D

Dirty little secret: The jittering was a last minute addition. I tried to make it more clear that the gunship's graze shot is literally "rocking the boat".

Threaten to transmute the base metals of the hull into custard?

You are thinking about the right tool, obviously. (I mean, I can't just end this chapter without showing the philosopher's stone in action at least once!)
The way, how it will get used, however... ;-)

It's not Camilla's fault

Would be hard for Aino to blame someone else for accidentally dripping her own weapon into the ocean. :-D
