The Tondar-69 is a short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) originating in China and operated by the armed forces of Iran. It was originally deployed by the Iranian army in 1992.[2] The design is based on the Chinese CSS-8, which itself was designed from the Soviet S-75 surface-to-air missile (SAM).

It is based in transporter erector launchers towed into position.[3] Up to two-hundred CSS-8 missiles were acquired from 1989-1992 and modified to Tondar-69 specifications.[4]
