Default Re: Fortifications

When a squad exits a fortification they have very little situational awareness. They usually are deploying single file out a door, they have to take up a tactical formation or assume positions in a defensive trench or position, crew served weapons have to be put into action, enemy has to located. In reality dismounting from an APC should start a unit with some suppression. You are rolling and rocking across the terrain, there is a sudden stop, the turret gun starts firing, the TC is yelling "enemy, right flank, 200 meters. deploy on line to the left" the ramp comes down and you exit by automatic to take up a formation without really knowing what is around you.
