During the course of May the Italian Navy proceeded with firings from the PAAMS-equipped Andrea Doria frigate, as well as with the final acceptance firing trial of the SAAM system from the Conte di Cavour carrier.

Meanwhile the French Air Force, after the Volfa exercise in February, participated with a MAMBA (SAMP/T) unit in the annual TOLL Army-Air Force exercise, testing in field conditions the coordination between Army and Air Force chains of command. During the same month the Air Force took into service its sixth MAMBA system, which was deployed right away to provide air defense coverage to the G8 summit in Deauville.
