The Surface to Air Missile, or SAM, is an unmanned guided weapon system in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

If the player flies an aircraft over the Area 69 military base, which is a no-fly zone, they will obtain an instant wanted level of 5 stars. When this happens, several heat-seeking SAM missiles will fire at the player from the four launchers dotted around the base. The aircraft carrier at the Easter Basin Naval Station also has two SAM sites, but these will be permanently deactivated after the completion of the mission Vertical Bird.

The missiles are also launched if the player uses the jetpack to fly over the base, as the game considers the jetpack as an aircraft.

These missiles can severely damage the airplane's wings or engine (or the player, when using a jetpack), making it harder to fly, and a few will destroy it and kill the player if they do not eject. Some aircrafts, like the AT-400 and Cargobob, are less susceptible to damage from the missiles. Although, once the aircraft has absorbed more than enough damage from the missiles, it will eventually explode.

The launchers can be temporarily destroyed; but will respawn once the player is far enough away from them.

Like other missiles, the SAM missiles can be deterred by using the Hydra's secondary fire, which launches flares.

A Surface-to-Air Missile, or SAM, is a missile designed to be launched from the ground to destroy aircraft. It is a type of anti-aircraft defense system.

Land-based SAMs can be deployed from fixed installations or mobile launchers. The smallest SAMs are capable of being carried and launched by a single person.

Land-based SAMs are deployed on mobile launchers, either wheeled or tracked. The tracked vehicles are usually armoured vehicles that are specifically designed to carry SAMs. Larger SAMs may be deployed in fixed launchers, but can be towed/re-deployed at will.

The UNSC use SAMs in the form of Anaconda Surface-to-Air Missiles, M19-B Surface-to-Air Missiles, and the surface-to-air missiles launched from High Ground.
