I can't imagine a squad changing over as individuals and starting an 
internal firefight.  But then again, I'm Hu'man.  I can easily see a 
squad popping their squad leader and signalling their surrender, and 
awaiting orders.  For simplicity's sake, I'd have in a DSII game, the 
K'V surrender/switching as platoons, with higher level HQs 
surrender/switching once a majority of their subordinates have, and 
passing the decision down to still loyal subunits, who are of course 
free to ignore it if they so choose.  It's a very chaotic way of doing 
battle.  KV leaders know they can be replaced at the drop of a hat, so 
they try to minimize the opportunity for random chance to turn the tide 
against them.  Once a KV force looses momentum and the tide turns, it 
turns FAST.

The fanfic I'm working on (no working title) has K'V surrendering as a 
whole crew with the former captain accepting a lower status rather than 
being killed.  Then there's the raid on their scout base, but the SOF 
troopers tasked with cleaning that out are under orders not to take 
prisioners--priority is on taking the station quickly so as to have 
computers to salvage.
