190 Squadron - The Magic Touch
Israel established the 190 helicopter squadron in 1985 with around 20 Hughes 500MD helicopters from two other squadrons. The squadron serves in several roles, including anti-tank combat and armed reconnaisance. As of 2006, the squadron had upgraded to the new AH-64A Apache helicopter.
As of August 2006, it was unclear whether the squadron was based at Ramon or Ramat David.
