Iran unveiled underground ballistic missile silos for the first time on
Monday in a warning to the world of its ability to protect its missiles
and secretly store them in hidden locations throughout the country.
State TV broadcast footage of several military officers touring an
underground silo that was holding a Shahab 3 ballistic missile. The
Shahab 3 has a range of some 2,000 kilometers, putting Israel within its
reach but is powered by liquid fuel which means that it needs to be
fueled close to launch.
