How does STALKER CS's offline battle system work?

As far as im aware when 2 squads ''battle'' offline the game checks which squad has better equipment?

What if I trade high tier weapons like AS VAL or SiG 550 and ammo to shotgun wielding NPC's would that change anything or would the game still ''think'' they are using their old weapons?

Does selling high tier medkits ( army/scientific) /food/other consumable items make NPC' squads count as they have ''better''equipment over the other squad?

what about buying all the NPC's crap does it mean the squad has less chance of survival?

I don't know how which weapons NPCs use offline, but I recall they don't accept a weapon that's weaker than what they currently own. Alas shotguns are considered the most powerful weapon. If you're lucky you might steal a wounded NPC's weapon, and then force him to accept something better.

Also the NPC will only get infinite ammo if he initially used a weapon of the same ammo type, otherwise he'll just use up the ammo that came with the new weapon and then switch back to the old one. You could give an NPC the unique tank machine gun (its 2000 rounds should last a while even for an NPC), just make sure you are around to pick up the weapon again once the NPC gets himself killed.

The biggest factor in offline battles has to do with the number in each squad.

I believe the number of men in the Squad and their Ranks are how Offline Combat is handled between the Squads.

Fluffy is really the one to explain it though.

IIRC, it sums up the ranks of all members in both squads, and determines which one is higher, then subtracts the losers rank score from the winners and destroys the losers squad.
If the drop in rank exceeds a squad members rank, it'll remove that member from the squad. But don't quote me on that. It's been quite a while.
