Matz the Cleaner is an Imperial Tank Ace that appears in Valkyria Chronicles. His appearance is in Chapter 15: Citadel Ghirlandaio (Pt.1), where he commands an Imperial Tank Destroyer. Destroying his tank rewards you with the Edelweiss' Firing Calculator Part.

There are a couple ways of destroying his tank. The first way is to climb the Sniper tower in the east and snipe down with a Lancer. While a little more luck-based, this also prevents you from getting shot after taking the base. As an added boon, if you miss often, your ammo refills completely due to your location near the base.

The second, more risky, way is to run into the trenches and fire at the radiator from there. The risk comes from interception fire from Matz himself and the second enemy ace, Oswald the Steel. While you'll have easier shots, you could take more damage.


  • Because he uses a Tank Destroyer, he has relatively lower Body HP and Tread HP. It will only take a couple of lance rounds to destroy it.
  • There is a GRA Tank Ace in Valkyria Chronicles 2 that's also named Matz, though his epithets are different.
