The SAB AB-80 was a French bomber built in 1934 by the Société Aérienne Bordelaise (SAB) in Bordeaux.

The SAB AB-80 was a high-wing monoplane bomber development that was intended to eventually also carry troops. It was built wholly of metal and was powered by two 640 kW (860 hp) Hispano-Suiza 12Ybrs engines.
The aircraft had roofed fighting platforms and the sides were protected by armour plate and bulletproof glass. The gunner's cockpit in the nose had many windows, giving full visibility. It had a non-retractable tailwheel undercarriage.

The first flight of the AB-80 took place on 23 June 1934. Only one unit was built.
