Without wanting to sound like a pedant it's a "Contingency Operating Base" like a FOB but not "Forward". It's what Basra Airbase got called.

Rocket attacks still happen out there but it's much less frequent now thank goodness, more like once a month rather than 88 times a day at the height of TELIC 9/10.
