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

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.
