Ali Base (ICAO: ORTL) is a military airbase located near Nasiriyah, Iraq. It was formerly known as Tallil Air Base. The base, called Camp Adder by the United States Army, has United States forces on it, including USAF and USMC, as well as being home to coalition forces from Australia (Camp Terendak; Australian Battlegroup withdrew June 1st 2008) and Romania (Camp Drakula). Camp Adder is also the home to three Provincial Reconstruction Teams for the provinces of Dhi Qar, Muthanna, and Maysan. The Dhi Qar team is Italian led, while the Muthanna and Maysan teams are headed by U.S. State Department officers.
The airfield is served by two main runways measuring 12,000 and 9,700 feet. It was a fighter base before the 1991 Gulf War when it was heavily damaged. According to the Gulf War Air Power Survey, Tallil had 36 hardened aircraft shelters. At the each end of the main runway are hardened aircraft shelters knowns as "trapezoids" or "Yugos" which were built by Yugoslavian contractors some time prior to 1985. Tallil occupies 30 square kilometers and is protected by 22 kilometers of security perimeter.
