El Salvador contributes military helicopters and a contingent of ninety peacekeepers to peacekeeping efforts of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). The armed helicopter unit, named "Torogoz" after an emblematic bird in El Salvador, includes pilots, maintenance teams, medical personnel, and marines. Its main mission is to conduct day and night air patrols, providing support to troops on the ground.
