Seems like Tarendelcymir is my acronym for tough luck..
Tonight I battled his Illuminator (3GM3's plus a PL) with my Medusa. I managed to close in on him with pretty much no damage, and went close combat. We both though it was over, when..
A) I got within two hexes of him, leaving him with only his PL to defend
B) His charge against me went terribly wrong : I was left standing, he fell down
C) He failed his piloting skill roll at 100/98
D) After managing to get up, he kicked me, and fell down due to the returned damage, I stayed up
E) My lucky HMG shot exploded his GM3 ammo for 28pts of damage, ripping of his arm..
Then, suddenly, he stood up, kicked me to my LoT, and punched there as well. I fell down, but still feeling confident having both HMG and AC12 in my arms. To no avail. Another kick to LoT destroyed it, and following two PL hits plus punches tore off my CBT, making my engine explode. Can you say ouch?
