The SAMP/T also called MAMBA in the French army is a mobile medium-range air defense missile system designed to protect the battlefield and sensitive tactical sites (such as airports and seaports) against all current and future airborne threats, including cruise missiles, manned and unmanned aircraft, and tactical ballistic missiles in the 600 km range class.

The SAMP/T is produced by Eurosam, a 50:50 joint venture between MBDA and Thales. Its key components are the Aster 30 interceptor and Arabel multi-function radar.

The SAMP/T uses Aster 30 block 1 missiles which are equipped with a modified seeker, fuse, signal processing, and a directional blast warhead where larger warhead fragments are directed towards the target.

The missile launcher unit of the French army SAMP/T is mounted on a Renault 8x4 Kerax transporter erector launcher vehicle. The SAMP/T for the Italian Army will be mounted on Astra 8x8 transporter erector launcher trucks, each truck with eight missiles.
