Back in 1995, players discovered this bug and used it to their advantage. They'd build long lines of sandbags, creeping out from their home base and stretching across the map to wrap around the AI base, effectively trapping the enemy in place.
This provided players with a crucial advantage: with the AI safely sandbagged in, the enemy couldn't send waves of soldiers and tanks onto your position. Enemy units would simply sit still, like gormless ducks, behind your lines of sandbags, clueless as to how to proceed, paralysed by an inability to chart a path to your position, the thought of blowing one of the little sandbags up never popping in their little virtual heads.
The founding and history of Army Special Forces are well known. Following the end of World War II, the Office of Strategic Services was disbanded. Some of its members would go on to form the nucleus of the CIA, while others would remain in uniform and advocate for the development of similar capabilities within the Army. In 1952, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) was activated under the command of Col. Aaron Bank. Bank served in World War II as a member of a Jedburgh team. The Jedburgh teams consisted of three members: a commander, an executive officer, and a radio operator. The intent of the teams was to drop behind enemy lines, link up with resistance forces, and conduct sabotage operations in support of Allied conventional forces.
Because of the nature of the Jedburgh mission, a language requirement was identified for selection of its members. For teams dropping into occupied France, members were chosen from American, British, and French forces, with at least one French officer on every team. The recruitment and screening for the American and British members started with a review of personnel records for French speakers. Jedburgh teams would be behind enemy lines in France, working with French partisans and attempting to blend into the populace whenever necessary.
Over the next 60 years, through dozens of conflicts and several major wars, language training has remained a constant in Special Forces training. Special Forces never found itself behind Soviet lines organizing Eastern European partisans in a conflict, but it has nevertheless established itself as the premier partnership and advisory force for the U.S. military. No matter what the mission, Special Forces units were almost always working with a foreign partner force. To help focus the force and develop regional expertise, Special Forces Groups were assigned specific areas of responsibility, with languages assigned accordingly. For instance, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) operates primarily in Central and South America and its members are predominantly trained in Spanish. 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) continues to operate in Europe, with its members trained in either French, German, or Russian.
On paper, patch 1.5's AI changes address a more glaring set of omissions from the original release. In practice, while enemies are apparently now smarter during combat, it's another thing I didn't really noticed while playing. I did notice pedestrians acting more intelligently. It was possible to stop your car in Cyberpunk's launch build and block every car behind you for eternity. Now, NPC drivers will back up and try to drive around you. Likewise, if you aimed your gun at a driver in the original game, they'd cover their face with their hands like a child who thinks you can't see them if they can't see you. In 1.5, they'll flee, slamming their car through you and any other obstacle in order to escape.
