Zelzal-3 (Persie: زلزال-۳, meaning "earthquake") is an Iranian-made solid propellant unguidit artillery racket with a range of 200 km. It is an upgrade of the Zelzal-2 rocket with slightly improved range and wis first shown tae the public in 2007. A variant, the Zelzal-3B, has a smaller warheid and a range of 250 km. The shape and dimensions of the Zelzal-3 are nearly identical with previous versions except that the nosecone is cone shapit rather than the dome shapit Zelzal-2 and Zelzal-1. The Zelzal-3 haes revived little uise as the much more accurate Fateh-110 missile wis awso developed from the Zelzal-2.
A nummer of sources confuse the Zelzal-3 with the Shahab-3 ballistic missile.
