Afghanistan - Qala-e-Naw
Qala-e-Naw is the capital of Afghanistan's Badghis Province.
The Qala-e-Naw PRT is run by a brigade of the Spanish Legion. Its facilities are also home to a Spanish Air Force Immediate Reaction Force and paratroopers. The on-site airfield can land C-130 Hercules and service Cougar and Chinook helicopters. The Qala-e-Naw PRT has contributed a number of projects to the district including an access bridge into the district capital, construction of water mains and potable water infrastructure, partial electrification, and a 54km-long road connecting Qala and Herat via the Sabsak pass.
