Goubrine Airfield is an abandoned military airfield in Tunisia, about 10 km south of Manzil Kāmil; 145 km south-southeast of Tunis. Its last known use was by the United States Army Air Force Twelfth Air Force in 1943 during the North African Campaign against the German Afrika Korps. It was used by the following units:

After the Americans moved out, the airfield was dismantled and abandoned. Today, the precise location of the field can not be determined, as agricultural use has erased all evidence of its existence.
