AI-Commander of tanks, cannot finish his voice command. (stuck record)
Acknowledged, NormalPublic

Description

Often, the tank AI-commander is not able to finish his voice command and then the voice command is stuck and the AI-commander repeats the same thing, an infinite number of times.
Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNLzgY9LPwQ&feature=youtu.be
The only way to end this is to kill your own commander or close the game. It is a not small nuisance for gameplay.

This bug can be linked with the "Repair comand" and "Get In Vehicle command" If the squad of AI tank commander has a such units as - Repair specialist or Engineer, then the commander will order them to repair the already destroyed tank! In the this cases, the Repair Specialist/Engineer can't make repair of this tank (because tank destroyed!), but the commander won't stop his request. We know, that the AI won't sit in a damaged or destroyed vehicle, but the commander continues his voice command.

What we have in this issue:
The commander ordered - "repair vehicle", but subordinate cannot do this, because vehicle already destroyed
The commander ordered - "get in the vehicle", but subordinate cannot do this, because vehicle can be damaged or even destroyed

Steps To Reproduce
  1. place in the map Tank platoon (player is not commander!)
  2. Join to this AI-commander several support soldiers (repair specialists/engineers, can be placed in the cargo)
  3. place in the map enemy tank platoon
  4. Try to play tank battle а some time. We know if the tank is damaged, then the crew will automatically leave him. But the tank explodes is not instantaneous. Once the team (along with the repair specialist) will leave the damaged tank, then the AI commander will immediately ordering repair the tank. But after a few seconds the tank blows up, but the AI commander does not understand this. It will continue to command a tank to repair already dead! In most cases, after the destruction of the allied tank, AI-commander will order repair or get in in the already killed tank! In this case, a voice command will stuck and can not be interrupted

Hi, @mickeymen
My repro was successful. AI commander don´t stops repeat orders to repair vehicle. There is some voice loop.

Hi @Alwin! I am very glad that you drew attention to this problem. Very often I add a repair-engineer to the tank-crew. In this case, my ears are bleeding and I have to abort the mission.

Please heal this issue and finally make the AI repair is adequate, as well as the medic heal soldier. Please note, this issue can be related to this issue

I think in both cases (wounded human and damaged machine) the combat medic or repair specialist should perform healing/repairs only order. But order should be only after status (damaged/wounded)
Needs to be the principle is the same!

Thank you for attention!

Fixed: AI orders to repair a vehicle would loop infinitely
