IAF 137th Anti-Aircraft Missile unit momento, circa. 1973: 22.65g, 35.5mm uniface tallion with emblem of the unit featuring a HAWK anti-aircraft missile, and legend in Hebrew "Momento from 'Yatnam' 137".

The Israel Air Force first received the HAWK missile in 1965 and absorbed them into special units then known as "surface-to-air missile units" ("Yatka" by its Hebrew abbreviation); in 1970, when the anti-aircraft corps of the Air Force was formed these units were transformed into the "anti-aircraft missile units", and in the Yom Kippur War (1973) these forces served on the Sinai front against Egypt.
