Observed: sometimes after dealing a deadly damage on AI it is still stuck in its current animation. The delay until the proper animation is played can be between 1 and up to 10 seconds.
Expected: the current animation should be cancelled every time and replaced by the death animation immediatly once the unit has been registered as being dead.

Good job.

It might be due to AI being in careless state or at least I can remember
that we have a ticket that a standing AI might do an anim where its "relaxing its shoulders".
Now that anim takes a couple of seconds to complete.
When you kill the AI during that animation, the death anim is delay until that one is done.

This looks like it or a similar source.

Yeah, Xeno is right, unfortunately. Also this means this will probably have to wait until A3.

At least by now we have
- good repros
- some animation names, but seeing this here, the list could be exhaustive
