Default Sudden defensive missions

When you don't get the chance to repair your units and you have an extra mission to defend, are there any extra negatives if you just retreat or is it like a normal defend mission?

The special battles give extra experience to your troops that participate. Otherwise they are just like a normal campaign battle other than the fact you do not get to repair and upgrade.

Thank you.
I assume the enemy (AI) is not negatively affected as they don't have a core army.

Just to anyone considering doing the same thing.
During deployment I placed all my units on the exit hexes. The battle started normally and continued till turn 17-18. I had no units on the map. The AI captured all the victory points and after 3-4 turns (wasn't paying attention) the battle ended with a decisive defeat.
They still managed to lose a man, I assume to their own artillery, which is funny.
Was it worth it? For me I think yes as I doubt it I would be able to defend properly.

Of course you could have always just skipped it, special battles give you the option.

Some special battles give you the option, others do not.

Of course, you can always skip them by cheating yourself if you really don't want them.

Learned from bitter experience to skip them whenever there's an option to do so. IIRC any losses in the previous battle count against you in the special one. Why take unnecessary risks if you've already got plenty of experienced units?
