  • In some scenes the AI will take a defensive strategy and fight from inside buildings rather moving towards the enemy
  • If the AI thinks the player squad is too well dug in, the attackers will retreat to a defensive point

Other improvements:

  • Any object can be dropped, or picked up during battle, including multiple items in same location
