Upon reflection - I see where I went wrong

The two Nupes attacked me because I was the last in the formation - I panicked and dove away
The other two Rolands and also the two Eindekkers watched me dive away and thought - 'where the hell is that fella going?'

I should have stayed close to the two Rolands and my Eindekker escort for protection

In short - the enemy AI picked me off because I was an easy target

Again - good work WOFF

Authority should derive from the consent of the governed, not from the threat of force

If the only tool you have is a hammer, pretty soon everything starts to look like a nail
