LORA ("Long Range Attack") is a theater quasiballistic missile produced in Israel.

It has a range of 400 kilometres (250 mi) and a CEP of 10 metres (33 ft) when using a combination of GPS and TV for terminal guidance.

It can be ship-launched from inside of a standard Intermodal container[4] as well as land-launched.[5]

In 2018, it has been offered for sale to the Israel Defense Forces, but a decision on purchasing it has not yet been made.[citation needed]
