Hi everyone. I have a question. I am playing the Cebu Littoral mission, but cannot figure out how to drop my SEAL teams by chopper. I fly the choppers to the appropriate marked drop zone, but the seal teams won't deploy. Any ideas?

According to the scenario (Littorial Mission - Cebu Strait), the SEALs are landed from Phibs (boats), not helios.

Ah, I just noticed that Green #1 and #2 have to be in the drop zone for 5 minutes before it drops it's troops

Correct. Thanks for your reply. In this mission, multiple SEAL teams are landed with both boats and helos. But I will try the 5 minute rule and see how it goes.

Hmm. Just played again. The SEAL teams on the small boats deployed in the zone no problem, but the SEALS on the helos refused to deploy in the zone no matter how long I waited. Strange.

It has to be units named Green #1 and Green #2 from what I could see

Getting aircraft to set off an Event in a small area can be tricky. You may need to manually set the helicopters to hover once they are within the drop zone so they don't stray out.

If you're using time acceleration the faster you have it set the less frequent the in area checks are (these are process heavy). Slow it down, widen the area or hover.
