Many of the specifics of The Israeli ''Jericho III'' Intercontinental Ballistic Missile are unknown. However the Class ''Jericho Series'' is placed into I, II and III catagories. I and II Classes, which were developed and deployed beginning in the 1960s, could support either conventional or nuclear packages. The current (as of 2013) Class III claims to support a MLR system of over 2,000-lbs. Capable of between 4,500 to 5,000 miles from launch to target, The Jericho III is deployed via land silo launch systems. Solid and multi-staged, The Class III is roughly 50-feet in length. They serve as the primary defense weapon of The Israeli Defense Forces.
