¿How to create an RTS movement system, where the units repel each other?

I’m doing an RTS and I want the units to repel each other. Ignoring the unit selection mode, for each unit I have an Area2D and a respective get_overlapping_bodies() array, however all the solutions based on boids and gravity that I have implemented create conflict with the target RTS movement system.

Can you come up with an idea for a unit to move to a specific target, while repelling other units at the same time?

Thanks in advance!

my unit.gd script:

extends CharacterBody2D

var active = false
var target = Vector2.ZERO
var speed = 300
var target_max = 60
var acceleration = Vector2.ZERO
var overlapped_bodies = []
@onready var sprite = $Sprite2D
@onready var unitArea = $Area2D
@onready var player = get_parent().get_node("Player")

func _ready():
	target = position

func move_to(tar):
	target = tar

func _process(_delta):
	if active:
		sprite.modulate = Color(1,0,0)
	if not active:
		sprite.modulate = Color(1,1,1)

func _physics_process(_delta):
	velocity = Vector2.ZERO
	acceleration = Vector2.ZERO		
	if position.distance_to(target) > target_max:
			velocity = position.direction_to(target) * speed

func update_neighbours():
	overlapped_bodies = unitArea.get_overlapping_bodies()
	for body in overlapped_bodies:
		if body.is_in_group("Player"):
