The Shaheen-III (Urdu: شاہین; meaning White Falcon-III) is a Pakistani intermediate-range ballistic missile speculated to be in development,though there is no official confirmation on the development of any such missile,and it may be developed with another name,not specifically in Shaheen series. It is a member of the solid-fueled Shaheen series missile family and is envisioned to replace the less advanced liquid-fueled Ghauri-III system whose development was canceled in May 2000 according to Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, Pakistan's former top scientist. The Shaheen series systems are developed jointly by Pakistan's SUPARCO and the NESCOM and its subsidiary, NDC.
