The 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR) is an Air-Cavalry unit in the United States Army. Nicknamed the "Night Stalkers", the Regiment has served with distinction in conflicts from the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993, to Operation Neptune's Spear in 2011 which killed Osama bin Laden. The pilots of SOAR are the best in the World. They undergo the toughest flying conditions while training. The Regiment currently uses over a hundred and eighty helicopters. Their inventory consists of MH-6 Little Birds, MH-47 Chinooks, and MH-60 Blackhawks. Their garrison is Fort Campbell, Kentucky/Tennessee.
The 160th is an active Air Cavalry division during the Korean-American War and took part in the Battle of San Francisco. They sent in AH-64 Apaches with the callsign Stalker to support U.S. troops engaged against the KPA in the city. The Raptor squadron of AH-700s were flown in to land 40th Infantry troops on the Golden Gate Bride. SOAR initiated a search and rescue (SAR) mission to rescue the downed airmen of Raptor 1-4. An MH-60 Blackhawk was likely used for the rescue. Much of the equipment used during the Battle of San Francisco was likely flown in by MH-47 Chinooks. MH-60 Blackhawks most likely airlifted troops into San Francisco once the City was retaken. It is unknown how they arrived in California due to Operation Watersnake.
