Usually we use ‘突然(tu-ran)’ to represent “suddenly”.  Why?  The structure of 突 is quite special: It's top is 穴 that refers to ‘a cave’; The bottom is 犬 that means ‘dog’. How do you feel when you see a dog rushing out of a cave? Yes, mostly it is a terrible accident that happening is beyond your expectation or foreseeing! You will feel surprised even astonished with the heart beating faster than normal!  
(然 symbols ‘some state’ that has no real meaning but help compose one phrase. )

突击 may mean ‘To launch a sudden attacking to the enemy’ or “To do your best to finish an urgent task'.       Such action usually is done like a dog rushing out of the cave on half way when you are walking that scene may make you can't help crying!
