Shahab-3 enters production

Appearing in
Jane's Missiles and Rockets

Publication date
Nov 26, 2001

According to unconfirmed reports, Iran has started serial production of the 1,300km-range Shahab-3 theatre ballistic missile (TBM), writes David C Isby. Production is understood to have begun earlier this year. Recent congressional testimony by US intelligence officials that the Shahab 3 would be in service "soon" seems to confirm this.

The Shahab 3 is believed to be based on the North Korean No Dong, but is reported to also include some technology from the former Soviet Union. Component production and final assembly are being carried out in Iran, but the rocket motors are imported from North Korea.
