Le M51, d’une portée de 8.000 km, entrera en service en 2010. Michèle Alliot-Marie a exprimé sa «grande satisfaction», après le tir effectué jeudi matin sans charge nucléaire. "http://www.lefigaro.fr/france/20061109.WWW000000293_m.html"

I don't speak or write French. So do I understnd that France has tested an eight thousand kilometer range SLBM with a dummy payload that she will deploy in 2010, and that the dummy in Iran has a present day water heater technology rocket that causes him to smile?

10,000 kilometer ranged liquid-fuelled 30 year old missile. Availability 58%. Probable mean failure upon launch, about the same.
 
Real yeehaw moment there.

I'd have to admit I haven't a clue why Herc has posted about the Iranian's missile on the same thread as the French 10k km  missile report - he might be best placed to explain!

Herald1234    Sarcasm, but not at France.   11/10/2006 10:59:07 AM
A comment was made about the Ayatollah's current water heater technology rocket as if it was anything near to France's achievement. The implication was that Iran had a missile which could threaten France and that France would be frightened of it.
 
If the Iranians could get it to work.
 
I would be interested to read the explanation for the statement myself.
 
I have confidence in France.
