  • SAM is short for Surface-to-Air Missile, which are a type of missile specially designed to be fired at enemy aircraft.
    • Unlike its real life counterpart, the SEAF SAM Launcher has a limited targeting range, so it will only shoot at enemy aircraft close to it.
  • Due to the shape of the icon, it is colloquially recognized as a Microwave.
