Notes from before the conversion: If you run deleteVehicle for every playable soldier, the AI units will be removed. deleteVehicle unit1 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: unassignVehicle unit1
unit1 setPos [0,0,0]
deleteVehicle unit1
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. if (alive unit1) then {hint"He is alive"} else {hint"Oh no he's not"}
