Forget the Warheads, Tell Me About the Missiles

I am having a fair bit of difficulty in accepting this story via A Small Victory regarding Iraqi Security forces having found three nuclear tipped missiles in a bunker under 6 meters of concrete.

Both US and Iraqi officials are denying the claim, and for the time being I am going to err to the pessimistic that the report is accurate. While everyone is dicussing the idea of the nuclear warheads, I would most certainly like more information about the missiles. Assuming that they do exist, what are their range and precision capabilities. If there are like the ones that Saddam's regime made a big show of destroying during the inspection (Sadr II's?), then we will have clear evidence that the Hussein regime went to great lengths to conceal a weapon system prohibited by the cease fire agreement.
