Urban Operations (UO)

Urban Operations or UO is the term the military uses to describe operations in an urban enviroment - such as a large town or city. This type of warfare was typical of many of the engagements in the Iraq War (Operation Iraqi Freedom or OIF) from 2003 to 2001. The term Urban Operations replaced the term Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT).
