In case you need to get the animation name including upper cases:
configName (configFile >> getText (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> typeOf _unit >> "moves") >> "States" >> (animationState _unit)) // e.g. "AmovPercMstpSrasWrflDnon"
Opposite to regular animationState return value:
animationState _unit // e.g. "amovpercmstpsraswrfldnon"
