Theatre ballistic missile

A theatre ballistic missile (TBM) is any ballistic missile with a range less than 3,500 kilometres (2,200 mi),[1] used against targets "in-theatre". Its range is thus between that of tactical and intermediate-range ballistic missiles. The term is a relatively new one, encompassing the former categories of short-range ballistic missile and medium-range ballistic missile.[2] Examples of this type of in-theatre missile are the Soviet RT-15, TR-1 Temp and American PGM-19 Jupiter missile, both from the 1960s.
