In January 2014, PAAMS (Principal Anti Air Missile System) Programme Division accepted delivery of the penultimate French SAMP/T “MAMBA” system and subsequently transferred it to the French Air Force Ground Based Air Defence Squadron 01.950 “CRAU”.
The SAMP-T system is able to track 100 trajectories and engage 10 targets at the same time on 360°.
This is the last Squadron to be equipped with the SAMP/T “MAMBA” system, located on Istres Air Force base, in the south-east of France.
