FOREWORD
Helicopter rope suspension techniques (HRST) provide Marines with the ability to
conduct helicopter insertions and extractions where helicopter landings are impractical.
Marine Corps Reference Publication (MCRP) 3-1 l.4A, Helicopter Rope Suspension
Techniques (HRST) Operations, establishes standards; serves as a guide for the realistic
and safe training of Marines in HRST skills; and outlines the techniques, procedures, andequipment used to perform HRST. It is not intended to teach the basics of rope training or
the basics of rappelling as they apply to cliff assault.
MCRP 3-1 1.4A applies to all Marines involved in HRST operations. It delineatesresponsibilities among aircrews and HRST personnel regarding the installation and
maintenance of HRST equipment and the procedures required to conduct HRST
operations. To enhance interoperability, the HRST rigging procedures for helicopters
from other Services have been included in this publication.
