This guide will describe how to exit/ dismount a transport helicopter with your squad, in a safe and secure manner. Once the Heli's skids hit the deck, the command "Dismount" is issued by the squad leader. Each member should dismount on the command and face naturally away from the cabin in various, offset angles depending on what seat they were occupying. The first motion that should be made is to leave the immediate vicinity of the aircraft. 3-4 Meters is enough to clear yourself from the chopper. This is necessary because the pilot may swing the chopper around on take off, due to incoming fire, shit skillz ect. Additionally, this will get you out of the way of a crate drop on a moving delivery. The next order is to cover all Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern directions. This does not have to be exact, just a scanning view is enough, as this is mainly to identify incoming fire origins. This is done by the squad members calling out the directions they are covering in turn. Example; "I've got East!", "I've got North!", "I've got West!" and "I've got South!". Once a squad member calls out one of these directions, his squad mates will understand that that direction is covered, and will call a different, uncovered direction, ideally creating a 360 degree scan for threats.. Finally, the squad members must lay prone to cover their sectors while the SL decides the next course of action. The situation can vary depending on whether the LZ is Hot or not. If it is quiet, take your squad and continue on plan. If the LZ is Hot, your squad will cover you while you assess the situation, and come up with a new plan. The whole procedure should take no more than 10 seconds. You must make a call early and leave the vicinity of the drop before the enemy comes to find you. If you're under fire and cannot locate the origins of the incoming fire, pop smoke, decide on a direction closest to cover, and charge your squad at it. If the cover is occupied by enemy troops, engage. If the cover is not occupied, you are on your way. Calling that enemy position early, and getting fire superiority is vital.
