It's true. Petrograd is quite a bit less wacky than the later campaigns we're used to. But there are echoes of it, in the TV episodes that look specifically at Sanya and Eila. It's one of the odd contradictions of Strike Witches that on the one hand, it largely is what one reader summarized as "an excuse for moe and panty shots," and yet at the same time, it's got a terribly serious premise—one that has a lot of mostly-unspoken but never-deniable tragedy woven into its backdrop.

Safe to say that if it were an actual movie, it would not be to every main-series fan's taste.
