Use F5 or Menu button to open the menu panel.
Use RETREAT button to order your units to cease all hostile acts and prepare to leave the combat area.
1) If the enemy is already retreating, use LEAVE followed by CONFIRM to retreat and end the battle.
2) If the enemy is not retreating, a timer will appear prior to being able to use the LEAVE button. Any hostile action by any of your units will reset this timer.
The result of combat counts and the Action Report is displayed to summarise the battle outcome.
WARNING: Ships burning at the combat end may automatically be scuttled based on overall flooding and the number of fires. Extinguish as many fires as possible prior to leaving a combat engagement.
Alternatively, you may use QUIT and CONFIRM to end combat immediately (not available during a Campaign).
