JTACs (Joint Terminal Attack Controllers) from the Portuguese Air Force TACP (Tactical Air Control Party), just came back from Central African Republic (CAR) where they participated alongside Portuguese Commandos in the UN mission MINUSCA (Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic). This deployment was so successful that the General Commander of MINUSCA awarded them a Commendation Letter for their actions.
