This is the mission where one is to rescue a unit. I tried a couple of reloads in hopes that the placement of the unit and the enemies would cause a no way to succeed playing field. Not the case, it was a total no way one can win situation.
The unit in question is placed in the middle of the map. While the player’s units are tucked in a corner near the evac location. One can’t move the unit to be rescued anywhere safe and they are in the open to begin with. No matter where one moves the unit, the enemies all start swarming on him from all directions. Assault units just dash to a position where he is killed on the first enemy turn. Even with a team of 8 there is no way to stop the enemy from swarming in.
I would expect the unit to needing rescue to be holed up somewhere safe not hiding out in the open.
