I have been trying to finish an unmodded legend ironman game for a couple of weeks, having started over countless of times. One tactic that I haven't even thought about before is evacuating some soldiers mid-mission. In a guerrilla op mission for example, can I run to the open with my ranger, get a 100% hit with shotgun and then drop the evac grid on top of her and then get her to safety?
Do all missions except the ones where the evac zone is visible at the start of mission allow calling skyranger to any legal spot? And will the mission be succesful even if I used the evac option, or does it automatically make the mission fail even if I complete all the objectives with the rest of the squad?
And how about the experience for evacuated soldiers. I would assume they get at least the kills made before evac, but do they also get the partial kill experience from kills made after they left the map?
