Handout photo shows Aster 30 SAMP/T firing at PISQ (Italian test center). France and Italy have finalised technical talks for the joint delivery of a SAMP/T-MAMBA air defence system to Ukraine in spring 2023, the French Defence Ministry said on February 3, 2023. The system can track dozens of targets and intercept 10 at once. It is the only European-made system that can intercept ballistic missiles. Ukraine has asked its Western allies for more air defence systems and specifically requested the SAMP/T, known as Mamba, in November. Russian forces invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022.
