Radio calls are powerful game elements that can turn the tide of a battle. They have to be used wisely as they can require a significant amount of resource points and can also provide a lot of collateral damage if not timed properly.
Press and hold the radio calls button (H by default) to bring up your radio calls menu. Select a call by clicking on it or by pressing the number right next to the call symbol. Whatever you selected will then be dropped approximately where you had your crosshairs when you pressed the radio calls button.
Keep in mind that every radio call has a delay thus doesn't happen instantly.
You have to be at least Corporal (1000 XP) to get a radio device (will be added automatically to your HUD).

- In the campaign (since 0.96) you can't use paratrooper drop calls if the enemy has an anti-air emplacement. It needs to be destroyed first. The structure will remain destroyed forever.
