Santa Elva is seen in Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception. The geography around the city of Santa Elva has rolling hills. The Lena River, the largest Aurelian river divides North and South Aurelia. The location of the city as the main transportation link between the two regions of Aurelia and also is a possible inland water link to the open ocean. Santa Elva was captured by the Leasath Military and used as a maintenance station for the Airborne Fortress Gleipnir.
Leasath - Aurelia War Edit
Standoff in the Skies I Edit
If the player choose to complete "The Midnight Sun", the Gleipnir suffered immense combat damage. It's Digital Optical Stealth (DOS) Technology was destroyed and it's SWBM Missile Launch ports were rendered useless, along with external and internal damages.
During maintenance in Santa Elva, after landing in the Lena River, the Gleipnir was attacked by an Aurelian Fighter Squadron, lead by Gryphus 1. The Gleipnir had no time to complete any major repairs and was forced to launch into combat. Using conventional weaponry and without any DOS and SWBM Weaponry, the Gleipnir was engaged by a swarm of Aurelian fighters and Gryphus 1. After being stripped of its conventional weaponry and becoming completely defenseless, the captain of the Gleipnir took control of the fortress and performed a shocking feat. of the Gleipnir's maneuverability. The captain rolled the Gleipnir onto its back and flew upside down in order to fire use it's shock cannon as an air-to-air weapon. Despite this the Gleipnir was destroyed by Gryphus 1 and fell into the Lena River. Santa Elva was taken soon afterwards.
Standoff in the Skies II Edit
If the player choose to complete "Rolling Thunder", the Gleipnir will depart to Santa Elva for preparations to defend the city(as CRUX said) & the player is forced to fight a fully-powered Glepnir in Santa Elva.
After Gryphus 1 destroyed it's DOS & the SWBM launch port, the Gleipnir will position diagonally & will use the Shock Cannon. In the end, Gryphus 1 destroyed the Shock Cannon before it could be fired upon the city & it crashes into Lena River.
Time Limit Edit
If the player choose to complete "In Pursuit I", the Hamlet Unit will invade Santa Elva by using Cynocrine (A poisonous biological gas).
Gryphus 1 is sent to neutralize it with the SP Weapon [NTRL](Neutralizing Agent). After all the Cynocrine gas cloud has been neutralized, Gryphus 1 then proceeds to sweep out the remaining Leasath Squadron that appeared during the invasion by the Hamlet Unit.
