The squad leader commands OUT OF ACTION. Upon this command, the loader clears the 90mm rifle, calls CLEAR, and closes the breech. No. 2 takes the rifle from No. 1. (When the rifle is fired from the prone position, No. 2 holds the rifle while No. 1 adjusts the bipod for the shoulder carry.) No. 2 now secures his ammunition and tools. No. 3 secures his ammunition. The squad leader indicates the line of march by facing in that direction. The crew places itself in column behind the gunner, and moves on command from the squad leader.
