Well, an exact science it's not...

Drop too high and you get shit spread out all over the fucking place, which is particularly problematic if what you're dropping is soldiers who then have to somehow regroup once on the ground.

Drop too low and you get things like a tank landing upside down.

I don't really know what to make of the guy at the end who crashes into the side of truck.

One would think he would have SEEN the trucks and steered his chute AWAY from them.
Where everything out here ain't what it seems
When I'm down to nothing, I just go ahead and dream
And face the fact that I'm a circle in a world full of squares

Easy enough if you're using a steerable 'chute.
