A follow-up question:
Can you use Squishy (or Mortar) reroll ability during an AMBUSH?
Normally it doesn't do you any good, because you have already taken a damage and being successful doesn't allow you to take their cargo.
HOWEVER, if you are doing priority mission Questionable Decisions and carrying a nuke, then perhaps you can still keep the nuke and fend off the ambush after the reroll? Does that work?
You would take the damage still but if your reroll was successful it would be a win and you would not lose the nuke
