An intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) is a ballistic missile with a range of 3,000–5,500 km (1,864–3,418 miles), between a medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) and an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).[1]

IRBMs are currently operated by the People's Republic of China, India,[2][3] Israel, and North Korea.[4]
