Unit History


195 Squadron

("Naval Flight")
Role: Maritime Patrol

A fixed wing Flight was established by the IDF Navy in 1977 to provide naval co-operation missions. The initial equipment comprised one ex-Air Force IAI 1123 Westwind 1, together with two additional new examples. During 1978-1981 the three aircraft were converted to IAI 1124N SeaScan standard with a prominent radar nose, bubble windows, stores pylons and an extensive sensor fit. The aircraft are crewed and maintained by the Air Force but operated under Navy control.

The Naval Flight SeaScans have now been repainted in a grey colour scheme, including 4X-JYO/031 and 4X-JYJ (4X-JYF/003 was only loaned).
