Defense Turrets On Troop Transports

On each landing craft, there would be 1 mounted gun on either side of the aircraft. Mounted to the wings. Not only would they automatically (or manually) fire on aliens when they get near, but you' be able to see the immediate area. I mean, it seems very unrealistic that those plains wouldn't even have windows on the sides to see out of.
What do you guys think?

The tow frontmost soldiers can turn around and see the terrain in the skyranger, but unfortunatley they can't see any aliens that way... They should.

So yeah, the path the Dropship took should be visible to the troops, and there should be some sort of belly-mounted, side-mounted or door mounted turrents to take out bad-guys in the area before you send Rookie Bob out.

Fire a pattern of AP and fragmentation explosives(alien or terran design) around the LZ so they explode ten seconds before the troop lander dusts down. Guaranteed to at least get those aliens to back up, although it is not very discrete they are under attack.

The anti-logarithm of the logarithm of X plus the logarithm of Y equals X times Y, or 10^(logX + logY) = XY

Also, you can't bomb alien bases, they are underground.
the truth about scientology
Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.
