Description
The Fateh A-110 is a short-range, road-mobile, solid-propellant ballistic missile based on the Russian made missile R-65 FROG, but other source said it is a copy of the Chinese DF-11. It is most likely a modified version of the unguided Zelzal-2 ground-to-ground missile, with the addition of control and guidance systems.1 The Fateh A-110 is designed to replace many of the aging Scud systems currently used in the Iranian armed forces. Iran began developing the Fateh A-110 in 1997. The first test flight of the Fateh A-110 took place in May 2001, with a second the following September of 2002.3 A third test was recorded in February 2003. A fourth test was successfully completed during the second Holy Prophet military exercise in November 2006. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard successfully tested the Fateh in January of 2007 during an annual war game. A fifth successful test was completed in September 2007 alongside the Qadr-1 and the Shahab-3. Additional test flights have probably taken place. During its tests, the Fateh A-110 was fired from a fixed launcher similar to the one used by the Russian S-75 Guideline surface-to-air missile. However, it is more likely that Iran has designed a launch vehicle to make Fateh A-110 road-mobile. In September 2010, the Iranian Defense Ministry announced that army units are equipped with the third generation of Fateh-100 missile with an upgraded range of 300 km. The Fateh A-110 was designed to replace the old Russian-made ground-to-ground ballistic missile Scud systems currently used in many countries in the Middle East and also in Iran. The Fateh-110 was also exported to Syria.
 
Variants
- Fateh-110: First variant. With a range of 200 km.
- Fateh-110/II or Fateh A-110A: Second Generation Announced in 2004. It has a range between 160 and 210 km, but it is possible that Iran will add an extra booster to increase the range of the missile to 400 km.
- Fateh-110/III or Fateh 3 A-110B: Third Generation Announced in 2010. The operational range of 250 km in place of 210 km for Fateh-110. It is expected that the A-110B will have a slightly reduced payload of 480 kg and an accuracy of 250 m CEP.
- Khalij Fars: is an Anti-ship ballistic missile based on Fateh-110. Unveiled in 2011.
- M-600: Syria has manufactured its own version of the Fateh-110, known as the M-600

Missile support
During the first tests, the Fateh A-110 was fired from a fixed launcher similar to the one used by the Russian S-75 Guideline surface-to-air missile but some pictures of the Iranian military parade show that the missile is mounted to a modified truck chassis. The missile is placed on a single rail which is mounted on the whole length of the truck chassis with the end on top of the cabin crew. Before firing, four stabilizers are lowered to the ground; these are positioned one either side at the rear of the vehicle and one to each side of the chassis near the cabin crew.
Missile
The Fateh-110 is a single-stage, solid-propellant, surface-to-surface missile. Produced in Iran, it has a range of at least 200 km. Some sources on the Internet indicate that the missile is 8.86 m long, 0.61 m in diameter, and weighs 3,450 kg. It uses a single-stage solid-propellant engine and has a range of 210 km (130 miles), although it is possible that Iran will add extra boosters in order to increase its range to 400 km (249 miles). The missile might be as accurate as 100 m CEP using a combination of inertial guidance and a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) system, though some sources suggest that the accuracy is much lower, as they do not think that the missile is capable of much inflight maneuvering or correction.
The Fateh-110 is similar in shape to the Zelzal-2, but it has two delta-shaped control fins at the nose and four delta control fins just in front of the rear wings. This aerodynamic control arrangement is new for a ballistic missile and has been developed by Iran to provide improved accuracy.
Mobility
The Fateh-110(A) can be mounted on a 6x6 truck similar to the Zelzal and Nazeat, though the TEL mechanism more closely resembles the SA-2 or Tondar-69 TBM (see below). Recently the missile was shown mounted on the exact same TEL as that associated with the Zelzal. The latest pictures take during military parade show that the Fateh-110 missile is mounted to a modified chassis of a Mercedes-Benz truck 2031, with one single axle at the front and two axles at the rear.
