notes"The Iranian CSS-8 (M-7) is a short range, solid fueled, ballistic missile. It is believed Iran acquired 200 of the CSS-8 (M-7) from China in the late 1980s. Iran later renamed the system Tondar-69. Although the CSS-8 (M-7) entered into service in 1992, it may soon become obsolete as less than 100 of the missiles are in operation since only 20 tracked launcher vehicles are in service. Furthermore, the system is reported to have poor accuracy. Reports indicate that Iranian leaders were unsatisfied with the missile, with most pointing to its poor accuracy, as mentioned above, and light warhead. Iran subsequently began development of the Fateh-110 SRBM, which also uses solid-fuel."
