*ATG aircraft are occasionally tasked for operations within both Iraq and Syria during a single sortie. These sorties are captured in both the Iraq and Syria sortie totals to represent the number of occasions on which ATG aircraft operated within each country. However, as single sorties, they are only recorded once in the cumulative sortie total. The difference between the cumulative total and the sum of the Iraq and Syria tables represents the number of sorties that operated in both Iraq and Syria.
