Confirmed happening on dev branch as well, is not just through the glass but through the window entirely. If the window is broken they still continue to not engage. Interestingly after shooting out the window and then walking into the building and letting the BLUFOR AI within shoot me, the OPFOR AI outside finally reacted and went to combat mode, engaging and killing the BLUFOR AI before it could fully kill me.

Place a unit in a window named bob, as a player go stand outside the window. Get them staring at each other, then do bob reveal [player,4] in dev console and see if he suddenly engages.

This seems to be a slightly more complex issue. It happens in some cases, i experienced windows they would not shoot through, as well as windows they will and windows they can only shoot through certain angles. Which possibly points to issues in the models.
