This command can be used on the whole hierarchical class tree (i.e. when checking a HMMWV, one could test for "HMMWV50", "Car", "LandVehicle", etc.)

To complement Kronzky's note, if one needs to count exact types, countType is not suitable for this, use count instead: _count = {typeOf _x == "B_medic_F"} count units player;
