The Ghadr-110 is an intermediate-range ballistic missile designed and developed by Iran. The missile has a range of 2,500 km [ [http://www.rferl.org/featuresarticle/2007/09/EF19F398-BFD1-46F1-9B2B-B0BE6B33FA82.html RFERL - Iranian military parade] ] to 3,000 km. [http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=8606310435 Fars News Agency] ] The Iranian Armed Forces first showed off the missile at an annual military parade to mark the Iran-Iraq war.

The Ghadr-110 is an improved version of the Shahab-3A, also known as the Ghadr-101. It is believed to have a liquid-fuel first stage and a solid-fuel second stage, which allowes it to have a range of 2,000 km.

The Ghadr-110 has a higher maneuverability and a shorter set up time than the Shahab-3. Its set-up time is 30 minutes while the older Shahab-3 has a set-up time of several hours. The missile has been manufactured entirely in Iran at the top-secret Hemmat Missile Industries Complex.
