This AI system allows an infinite number of teams, composed by an infinite number of squads to battle each other. (To a limit caused by performance of course). With 2 combat behaviors, the AI can analyze the world geometry and find suitable cover automatically or it can charge its target with an aggressive movement, while shooting. The system also comes with example shooting, crouching, damage and animation system for the NPCs (And player, if pawn possessed by a player).
