The Iranian-made Fajr-3 (فجر-۳, meaning "dawn") is believed to be a medium-range ballistic missile with an unknown range (estimated 2,000 km, 1,250 miles).

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard 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.
