Single Point Entry / Exit

Half Circle Dismount

Used for landing zones with no enemy contact

A single point aircraft exit demonstrated on a Chinook.

As demonstrated above, here are a few pointers to remember with a single point exit:

  1. Each team is split into two colours / sides by the section leader, which dictates the side of the arc you are on.
  2. The center of the arc is where your formation begins for each team. Follow the numbers 1 to 5 from the tail to the door gunners arc – this is mirrored on the other side.
  3. Maintain spacing between team members at all times in the landing zone – dismounting from an aircraft is no different to any other infantry formation in this regard.

 

Direct Line Dismount

Used for landing zones with existing enemy contact, or suspected enemy presence. 

A single point direct line exit demonstrated on a Chinook.

A single point direct line exit demonstrated on a Chinook.

As demonstrated above, here are a few pointers to remember with a direct line / fast exit:

  1. The team members dismount one after the other (note as a single team, not two separate) in a direct line to the closest hard cover available.
  2. The dismount is fast, and clears the LZ as fast as possible of all infantry. 
  3. Be smart when heading for cover – try and avoid clustering entire sections around limited cover.
