  Missile
Missiles can range from a rock thrown from a slingshot through a crossbow bolt to a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile with multiple nuclear warheads.
Missiles are often used in warfare as a means of delivering destructive force (usually a warhead) upon a target.
Missiles with no ability to maneuver are called ballistic missiles (because their motion is governed by the laws of ballistics).

 CNS - MISSILE MONITORING SYSTEM
On-site inspections are required to ensure that all missiles that require monitoring have been declared by Iraq and that the facilities are not involved in proscribed activities such as training for the use of proscribed missiles.
The objective of monitoring operational missiles is to ensure that they are not modified for proscribed purposes, for example to extend their ranges over the non-prohibited limit of 150 kilometres or to modify them for the delivery of chemical or biological warfare agents.
Missile technologies are limited to a few countries, the number of personnel involved in relevant industries is relatively small, generally over-employed, and very well paid.

Missiles could be the determining factor of whether bases in Minot or Grand Forks make the Base Realignment and Closure list that will be announced today.
The list, which is the secretary of defense's recommendations to the Base Realignment and Closure Commission, is expected to be announced to the public at 9:30 a.m.
The Grand Forks missiles were placed in launch facilities controlled by Malmstrom that were left vacant after Minuteman II missiles in Malmstrom were removed as part of the military's plan to upgrade the Minuteman II missiles to Minuteman III missiles.

A ballistic missile is one whose payload reaches its target by way of an initial powered boost and then a free flight along a high arcing trajectory.
Part of the flight of longer-range ballistic missiles may occur outside the atmosphere and involve the "reentry" of a warhead or the missile.

The SA-7 is a tail-chase missile system and its effectiveness depends on its ability to lock onto the heat source of low-flying fixed and rotary-wing aircraft.
However, as the Strela-2 proved to be considerably smaller and lighter system, the specifications of the Strela-1 were changed, calling for a heavier vehicle-mounted missile of higher performance to support the ZSU-23-4 gun systems in the regimental air defence role.
At least some technical documentation on the Strela-1 system is known to have been passed to the CIA by the Polish Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski.

North Korea is not believed to currently possess a functional version of this missile, but both North Korea and Iran (Shahab-5) are believed to be working towards a missile with these capabilities.
Many of the ranges suggested for the yet-to-fly missile systems are based on mathematical models relying on what little data has been made public.
The large ranges suggested by some of these studies do not necessarily imply likely ranges for an armed missile in the near future, rather they often attempt to extrapolate a maximum possible range for a given design, so as to come up with a worst-case scenario.

However, emerging ballistic missile systems can potentially kill tens of thousands, or even millions of Americans depending on warhead, and the intended target.
