Operation Unified Protector (OUP) is an ongoing NATO operation concerning the 2011 Libyan civil war, implementing an arms embargo, a no-fly zone and using all means necessary, short of foreign occupation, to protect Libyan civilians and civilian populated areas. For that reason the Hellenic Air Force Air Base of Souda hosts plenty of aircrafts and personnel of French, Royal Norwegian and Qatar Emiri Air Force. Several patches have been designed for OUP crews and most of them use the greek alphabet letters as you can see in the Album that has been created in our gallery. The code word Harmattan is used by French Air Force participation in OUP. We especially thank Kentorama for the kind donation and precious help in order to present this set of OUP patches. To access the Album with patches please click on the image above or here.
