Is there any documentation on the actor type differences in the actor tag?

If you want to see the nature of a man, quote God.

If you're referring to the different races of aliens and such, and "mounted weapon", then it's merely a number value, basically to keep things organized. It has no substantial alteration on behavior; merely to keep track of enemy / friend teams.

I think they meant grunt vs elite vs jackal.

AFAIK that's just to ID the A.I. for the Leader enum. If a leader dies, the A.I. are programmed to have a chance to panic based on tagdata in the actor/actor_variant.
