Description
The Fadjr-5 is an Iranian made 333mm multiple rocket launcher system. This vehicle has been developed by the Shahid Bagheri Industries division of the Aerospace Industries Organization of Iran and uses the same chassis as the Fadjr-3 240 mm (12-round) artillery rocket system. The Fajr-5 missile, which is launched from a mobile platform, reportedly has a range of 75 kilometers.
 
Variants
The Fadjr-5 can be mounted on the old Mercedes-Benz 2624 truck chassis or the new Mercedes Benz 2631 6 x 6.

Armament
The Fadjr-5 has a total of four 333 mm diameter rocket launcher tubes in one layer with launcher elevation being from 0 to +57º and with a traverse of 45º left and right. The launcher tubes are mounted on a turntable with the manually operated elevating and traversing mechanism on the left side.
Rocket
The Fadjr-5 uses a solid propellant 333 mm unguided rocket with fins that unfold after launch and the rockets can be launched with an ambient temperature of between -40 to +50ºC. This Fadjr-5 rocket has a maximum range of 75 km with a claimed CEP (circular error of probability) of 4% of range. The rocket is 6.485 m long and has a launch weight of 915 kg with the High Explosive (HE) warhead being fitted with an impact or proximity fuze but other types of warhead could be fitted including sub-munition and HE incendiary,HE-FRAG and smoke. . The Fadjr-5 system has a rate of fire of one rocket every four or eight seconds and replacement 333 mm Fadjr-5 rockets are packed one to a crate which weighs 1.21 tonnes. The rockets can be launched singly or in ripple fire and once the launcher has expended its rockets it would normally deploy to another position when new rockets would be loaded using a crane.
Mobility
The Fadjr-5 is based on a modified Mercedes-Benz 2624 series (6 × 6) truck chassis with the engine and fully enclosed two-door cab at the front. To the immediate rear of the cab is a small crew compartment. The latest production of the Fajr-5 is installed on a new Mercedes Benz 2631 6 x 6 forward control chassis and the platform is now integrated into a complete weapon system rather than an individual launcher. This new truck chassis has improved cross-country mobility and the forward control fully enclosed cab provides space for the driver and two passengers.
Accessories
A radar can be added to give the system the capability to track and engage naval targets. Another feature added is remote fire capability under which the command vehicle can link all Fajr-5's within a 20 km range. To provide a more stable firing platform, four stabilisers are lowered to the ground before the rockets are launched, two of these are positioned at the rear of the vehicle with another one between the second and third axles on either side.
