I am playing JA2 1.13 for the first run after having played JA2 vanilla several times (as well as original JA several times).
I have run into the Drassen counter-attack and after clean-up I'm ready to secure the north-east corner of Arulco.
I have explored south of Omerta into Sector C9, and have run into an ambush.
When I send a squad of 2, 4 or 6 mercenaries, the game drops me right into the middle of them with no preliminary.
I don't get the option to put my guys on any border; they are just dropped into the middle of red-shirts.
After the first enemy round, my guys have -50 action point (can't move) and ensuing rounds they guys are shot.
The enemy are usually highlighted when a squad moves adjacent to an enemy held-square.
These red-shirts never show until I am dropped in their midst.
Whether I SNEAK or DRIVE into the sector the same thing happens; dropped in, ambush ensues and my guys die.
I can't even escape.
The prelude screen showing the sector and the list of my guys, a red drop-down list -- THIS NEVER APPEARS.
Is this a 1.13 trap? Do I park next to them in another sector and wait them out?
Is it a bug? Do I need a tank?
