Notes

  1. ^ This is world's heaviest ICBM with a throw-weight of 8,800 kg.
  2. ^ The world's first intercontinental ballistic missile.
  3. ^ Here "Archived copy". Archived from the original on 2014-10-03. Retrieved 2014-04-10. it says an Israeli official indicated that "A 1,000-kilometer missile should come within 50 meters of its target."

    Israel may still lack advanced technology to improve the Jericho's guidance. In 1992 a Defense Department study, the Militarily Critical Technology List, found that Israel lacked a number of specialized devices to make and inspect parts and assemblies for gyroscopes and integrated sensor systems though this finding is over twenty years out of date.
