Tarin Kowt – military bases and activities
The names used for these facilities have changed over time – e.g. the US-built FOB Ripley was reportedly renamed FOB Davis, and again as Camp Holland following the Dutch takeover of command in 2006. However, in 2010 official US documents were referring FOB Tarin Kowt.

There is a full aviation battalion of the US Army going into Tarin Kowt. The whole south side of the airfield is a building site. The US Army are going in there in force. Saw a couple of C130s from the US Air Force land while we were there, disgorging equipment, so that the US could operate many more helicopters out of Oruzgan.
