7 Jan 78
Savage gets a surprising guardian angel in Rosa Volgaska.
FIRSTS & LASTS
Volgan forces use Scout cars. Monitor cameras allow recording of footage, two-way communication and can be fitted to explode remotely.
He distributes the money from the bank raid to members of the Resistance and heads with Silk, Nessie and Prince John to Solway Firth. They are pursued by Volgans and Savage jacknifes their truck, knocking the Volgan vehicles off the road. They continue the chase and Savage leads them across the Solway Firth where they are hit by a tidal wave.
COLONEL ROSA VOLGASKA
Her rank has been reinstated and she has been put in command of a group of security captains. She instructs them to carry monitor cameras. She remotely destroys a Volgan sniper team because they attempt to kill Savage in a manner that conflicts with her plan.
Nine. The Solway Firth killer tide presumably drowns four Volgans, while Rosa kills five members of a Volgan sniper team.
Rosa: "Rosa is back in business and brought with her a perfect plan to trap those scum at last!"
Rosa: "I'm watxhing you poor fool. Both Savage and I know something you do not...that Solway has a secret!"
"Mother Volga" is evidently a Volgan exclamation. Drowning Volgans scream an "Aieeeeeeeeeee!", while exploding Volgans go for "Yaieeeeeeee!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
Savage distributes the money from the bank raid in 'The Return Of Rosa'.

This is intriguing, but, Jacknife aside, Rosa is definitely the star of the show here.
