At El Fasher, fighters, transports and helicopters are seen frequently. We have listed them as detachments of their parent units, but they could easily be separate squadrons.

Geneina has a new airport with a prominent helicopter ramp. The white helicopters may be a detachment but could also belong to an other operator, e.g. the police.

Chinese built hardware is also abundant in Sudan. K-8, PT-6 and these A-5 aircraft are operated in numbers.

Attack and assault types possibly divided between two separate squadrons.
These are army barracks rather than an airfield. They seem to have a permanent presence of helicopters. Maybe this is a separate squadron instead of detachment. It may also be a police unit.
