- Minuteman III (LGM-30G): launched from silo—as of May 2009, there are 450 Minuteman III missiles in active inventory
- Atlas (SM-65, CGM-16): Former ICBM launched from silo, the rocket was modified and used in 1962-1963 for four manned Mercury-Atlas flights, and was used, along with the Agena or Centaur upper stages, as a medium-lift satellite and interplanetary probe launcher for NASA and the USAF. Original design, with "balloon tanks" and "1.5 staging," has since been retired and replaced with the Atlas V, which has an internal structure similar to the Titan ICBM, but using conventional propellants.
- Titan I (SM-68, HGM-25A): Based in underground launch complexes. Used LOX/RP-1 propellants like Atlas, but stored in conventional tanks.
- Titan II (SM-68B, LGM-25C): Former hypergolic-fueled ICBM launched from silo, the rocket was used in 1965-1966 for ten manned Gemini flights and its two-stage core was modified into the heavy-lifting Titan III and Titan IV rockets. All Titan II, III, and IV models have since been retired.
- Minuteman I (SM-80, LGM-30A/B, HSM-80)
- Minuteman II (LGM-30F)
- LGM-118 Peacekeeper / MX (LGM-118A): silo-based, with rail basing tested; decommissioned in May 2006
- Midgetman: road mobile launcher; has never been operational, cancelled in 1992
DF (Dong Feng or East Wind) are land-based ICBMs.
- DF-4 (CSS-3): 1975, silo-based, 5,500-7,000 km
- DF-5 and 5A (CSS-4): silo based, (1981) 13,000- (1983) 15,000 km
- DF-31 (CSS-9): 2006, road mobile, 7,250-8,000 km range.
- DF-31A: 2007, road-mobile, 11,270 km, MIRV - 3
- DF-41 (CSS-X-10): 2010, road-mobile, 10,000-12,000 km, MIRV - up to 10
France only deploys submarine-launched ICBMs, with all land based ones decommissioned.
- Agni-V (ICBM): Successfully tested in 2012 and 2013, it is a road and rail mobile missile with a range of 5,500-5,800 km., and is expected to enter service in 2014-15.
- Agni-VI: (8,000-10,000 km)
- Surya: (10,000-16,000 km) [Speculated]
North Korea currently does not have any ICBMs in its inventory.
- Taepodong-2 (4,000–6,700 km range)
- Jericho III is a road mobile ICBM which entered service in 2008 believed to carry nuclear warheads. The Jericho III is believed to be a three-stage solid propellant missile with a payload of 1,000 to 1,300 kg. It is possible for the missile to be equipped with a single 750 kg nuclear warhead or MIRV warheads. It has an estimated launch weight of 30,000 kg and a length of 15.5 m with a width of 1.56 m. It may be similar to an upgraded and re-designed Shavit satellite launch vehicle, produced by Israel Aerospace Industries with longer first and second-stage motors. It is estimated that it has a range of 4,800 to 11,500 km  (2,982 to 7,180 miles). In November 2011, Israel successfully test fired an ICBM believed to be an upgraded version of the Jericho III.
Intercontinental-range submarine-launched ballistic missiles
- The U.S. Navy currently has 18 Ohio-class submarines deployed, of which 14 are designated SSBNs and armed with 24 Trident II SLBMs each, for a total of 288 Trident II missiles equipped with 1,152 MIRV nuclear warheads.
- The Russian Navy currently has 12 SSBNs deployed, including 4 Delta III class submarines, 7 Delta IV class submarines and 1 Typhoon class submarine. Missiles include R-29R SLBMs and R-29RMU Sineva/R-29RMU2 SLBMs with MIRV warheads for a total of 181 missiles equipped with 639 nuclear warheads. The Borei class SSBNs and Bulava SLBMs are under development.
- The United Kingdom's Royal Navy has four Vanguard class SSBNs, each armed with 16 Trident II SLBMs with MIRV warheads for a total of 64 Trident II missiles and 225 nuclear warheads.
- The French Navy has four Triomphant class SSBNs each armed with 16 M45s SLBMs with TN75 MIRV nuclear warheads. The M45 SLBMs are scheduled to be upgraded to M51.1 and M51.2 (expected to enter service in 2015).
- The People's Republic of China's People's Liberation Army Navy has two Type 094 SSBNs each to be armed with 12 JL-2 SLBMs.
- India: It was revealed in 2011 that India is developing submarine launch ballistic missiles based on some variants of the Agni series, the K Missile family which will be a series of submarine-launched solid fueled missiles.
K-5 missile, with a maximum range of 6,000 kilometers and a payload of one tonne, is under development by DRDO which may be the SLBM version of AGNI-VI (ICBM). However, there is strong opacity regarding the existence of such a project.
A variant of the K-4 missile is also under development, with a range of 5,000 km and is intended to arm the future, larger nuclear submarines of the Indian Navy. India, having completed the development of its first ballistic missile submarine INS Arihant, is reported to be developing at least three more submarines in the Arihant classi.e total 4 SSBN.
