If you run deleteVehicle for every playable soldier, the AI units will be removed.
 
 
<code>deleteVehicle unit1</code>
 
 
will result in some very strange, and unwelcome, things happening.
 
 
A safer way to delete unit1 if it is, or might be, inside a vehicle is:
 
 
<code>[[unassignVehicle]] unit1<br/>
 
unit1 [[setPos]] [0,0,0]<br/>
 
deleteVehicle unit1</code>
 
 
''This is because you cannot call deleteVehicle on a unit (soldier) who's currently inside a Vehicle.''
 
 
The line below works just fine for units that have been deleted.
 
 
<code>[[if]] ([[alive]] unit1) [[then]] {[[hint]]"He is alive"} [[else]] {[[hint]]"Oh no he's not"}</code>

It doesn't matter whether it's the default crew (e.g. {driver car1}), or a unit that has been placed into a vehicle (e.g. {unit1 moveInCargo car1; deleteVehicle unit1}). In either case the unit will stay alive and visible in its position.<br>
 
To circumvent this limitation, [[Armed_Assault:_Actions_List#Eject|eject]] the unit first, before deleting it.
