The moment your outpost starts receiving damage like that and your troops are getting hammered out of spawn... almost no chance of a comeback at that point. That's why I covet the high spirits op card, it gives pure benefit at no drawback.
I don't know if it was you, but some guys were attacking me at my permanent cover (ones before the sandbags) whilst all the temporary cover was destroyed. Had two machine gun squads entrenched with cover specialization, as well as the cover operation card.
Waves upon waves destroyed. Felt like some WWI action with the MG squad holding enemies off.
Even with all timers full (vehicles get taken down quick), I just sat their with troops to reinforce. just holding the line with MGs (basically a shorter range version of the prenerf sniper).
