A fast-rope can be fastened to the special operations platform and with the help of a fast-rope hook, personnel gain the ability to perform swift troop deployment and rooftop extractions. The fast-rope hook is designed with a hook feature that locks the rope in place when a load is applied, which prevents accidental release during roping operations. The hook can also be attached to rescue hoist brackets, but it is discouraged for fast-roping operations due to the fact that the rescue hoist brackets provide extra stress in the area it's connected. The fast-rope hook is designed with the safety of personnel in mind and features a mechanism that allows troops to be safely lowered to the ground in case of a helicopter emergency.
One of the primary functions of the helicopter framework is the ability to use it as a sniper platform for the long-range elimination of hostile targets from the air. But there is also the tactical deployment of ground personnel, who can be quickly and easily inserted into hostile environments from the air. These functions grant a sizable tactical advantage in a variety of hostile situations. The helicopter framework is also very useful for safe and effective dive team deployment. Along with personnel insertion and deployment, the TSOP can be used in rooftop rescue operations, and other extraction and retrieval missions.
The TSOP was designed for rapid SWAT insertion and extraction, emergency evacuation response, and dive team transport. Developed with personnel safety in mind, the helicopter platform features several useful safety mechanisms that reduce the likelihood of disaster during missions. The variety of functions the platform features includes use as a sniper platform, external transport and deployment of tactical teams, a fast-rope and rappel option, safe dive team deployment, an external cargo or rescue litter kit option, and emergency rooftop evacuation. In most cases, installation is easy and does not need any modification to the airframe. The TSOP is made to mount to the aft cabin area and fuselage jack points with specifically designed clamps and brackets. It takes a little less than five minutes to install the platform and requires no tools whatsoever, making it ideal for a variety emergency situations.
