find another comms hack it for a new lz 

 

That is correct. Make sure the the LZ is clear before calling in the evac. Check for armed road blocks and other enemy bases near the evac. Some mods have a strong AA focus and makes this especially important.

Does the evac icon on the map change if the chopper can't make it?  We noticed yesterday that after throwing smoke it changed to a red circle-X... wondering if we missed the target area when throwing smoke.

We had two helicopters crash at a LZ once.  For some reason, they decided to try land on trees.  The LZ showed up as a cross after that,  We moved onto another Comms bases and called another Heli.  By the time we got to that one and escaped we had been on the same missions for just over 5 hours. Between the pair of us, over 200 kills and heaps of Vehicles taken out.

 

The same happened to us last week. As suggested, we missed a few spots we should have cleared and our Heli's were hit, one flew into a building and other other crashed. We moved to another Comms and called another LZ and made it,  that one was just under 3 hours.

There has been a lot of times, where Heli's at a LZ can be damaged, it's why its important one of you is an Engineer, so you can repair it, the pilots will jump back in again if its repaired and most times you will escape.

Nearly every time, Arch Angel will crash.  As it tries to give air support it also attracts Stinger or HMG fire.  

We always try and carry a Stinger, as most times a Gunship will be called on you, after you activate an LZ.  One of us is an Engineer and the other a Medic, as they seem the only classes that differ and have extra abilities. The other player will always carry a Rocket launcher, either a M136, MAAWS or NLAW

Yes, the extraction marker turns into a red cross of the helis are destroyed and/or abort the evac.
