This is a list of intercontinental ballistic missiles developed by various countries.


Specific types of Russian ICBMs include:




United States[edit]


  • Minuteman-III (LGM-30G): Only land-based ICBM in service in the United States.
  • Trident II (UGM-133): Submarine launched.


  • RTV-A-2 Hiroc (High-altitude Rocket)
  • 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 September 2005
  • Midgetman: road mobile launcher; has never been operational, cancelled in 1992


DF (Dong Feng or East Wind) are land-based ICBMs.


France's proximity to Russia made only Intermediate-range ballistic missiles and Submarine-launched ballistic missiles necessary for strategic deterrence, while smaller warheads have been used as free-fall bombs and on airborne cruise missiles or short-range ballistic missiles (Pluton and Hadès).


France now only deploys submarine-launched ballistic missiles, with all land based IRBMs decommissioned in September 1996. The French Air Force and French Navy retain aircraft-carried nuclear-tipped cruise missiles (SCALP-EG) to fulfill the pre-strategic role (tactical-sized weapons used as "ultimate warning" before launching an all-out strategic strike).

  • M45 SLBM (progressively retired)
  • M51 SLBM (three variants : M51.1 from 2010; M51.2 from 2015; M51.3 projected from 2025 onwards)



  • Jericho III is a road mobile ICBM which entered service in 2008, a three-stage solid propellant missile with a payload of 1,000 to 1,300 kg with a range of 4,800 to 11,500 km [15] (2,982 to 7,180 miles).[16] In November 2011, Israel successfully test fired an ICBM believed to be an upgraded version of the Jericho III.[17]
