movement speed � 15 kilometers an hour cross-country by day, 10
kilometers an hour cross-country by night
|Divide route distance by speed, then multiply the answer by 60. The result is travel time in minutes. Example: (11.55/15) x (60)= 46 minutes|
|Add tear-down and set-up time to the travel time. This is the total time required to jump and become operational. Example: travel time 46 minutes + 20 minutes tear-down + 15 minutes set-up = 81 minutes|
