Rocket attacks on Basra's Contingency Operating Base (COB) have fallen dramatically recently. This can be attributed to a number of factors, notably the vastly improved security situation in Basra as a result of the Iraqi-led Operation Charge of the Knights. An important capability providing protection to the COB though is the Tri-Service Counter Rocket Artillery and Mortar Battery. Report by Danny Chapman.
