Command most likely only works if run before join into group after createUnit array.

In Arma, this command does not change the stance of player units. In VBS2 after v1.30, this command does affect players (it changes their stance, but doesn't force them to stay in that stance).

The above comment by Dwarden about 'an additional join required' is no longer true for Operation Arrowhead.

A unit might not always go prone when ordered to setUnitPos "DOWN", if the unit doesn't agree with the command. To force the unit to go prone, stop the unit from firing by setCombatMode "BLUE" and then order the unit to prone.
