- In OFP v1.96, the side return value for a vehicle is based on the side of it's commander, then gunner, then driver, then cargo. It will retain it's side value until it is either empty, or a unit of another side takes over in a equal or higher role, irrespective of the side of other units still on board. This can be used to simulate friendly fire, as a vehicle can be made to appear to be an enemy even though all units on board are actually friendly.
