July 12, 2013, Israel conducted another test own MRBM (IRBM) Jericho-3. The purpose of the test was to check the latest rocket motor design. Past tests Jericho 3 were held in 2011. In 2008, Israel graduated from bench tests Jericho-3, which almost went into the creation of a year ago. Wielding a range above 5,000 km (and maybe more than 10 000, which makes it an ICBM), Jericho-3 can deliver a nuclear warhead to any point Near East. Jericho-3 is a 30 ton, solid-fuel, two-stage rocket capable of carrying a payload itself little one ton. This means one thing: the Jericho-3 is capable of carrying up to 3 separable warheads personal guidance. They believe Israel has, at least, a dozen Jericho-3.
Israel is believed to have also the smallest radius 50-100 missiles Jericho-2 acts. This 26-ton rocket and with the greatest range of about 1,500 km. Ballistic missile Jericho-1 was developed with the assistance of France and was commissioned in 1973. This rocket, which owns a radius of 500 km in the act, was uniformly replaced by Jericho-2, adopted in the year 1989. Israel is believed to have about 200 nuclear warheads and the means to deliver them capable ballistic missile submarines (cruise missiles launched from the torpedo tubes) and aircraft.
First two stages of the three-stage rocket Shavit used to start satellites were the basis designs Jericho-3. First start Shavit was implemented in 1988, and today for your version (Shavit-2) can be put into orbit a payload weighing up to 800 kg. To launch its own satellites Israel from time to time use the services of other countries. In 2008, the Israeli satellite with radar TekSar (also called Ofek has been launched in India with the help of an Indian rocket. Israel constantly uses and upgrades Shavit launch vehicles, and this, of course, leads to the modernization of Jericho-3.
