The Iranian-made Fajr-3 (meaning "dawn" in Persian) is believed to be a medium-range ballistic missile with an unknown range. Iranian officials have said that the missile can avoid radar detection and has multiple independently targeted reentry vehicles (MIRV).

The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps unveiled the missile during the Holy Prophet wargames on March 31, 2006. Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force commander Gen. Hossein Salami announced on television "the successful test-firing of a new missile with greater technical and tactical capabilities than those previously produced." He also said that the missile would carry three warheads, and that each warhead would be capable of hitting its target precisely. He did not specify the missile's range, which can vary with the payload.

Analysts have compared the Fajr-3 to Iran's Shahab-3 solid-fuel ballistic missile. U.S. and Israeli officials have speculated that Iran's announcement may be a bluff.
