Description: The Zafar, 'Triumph' in English, is a short-range anti-ship cruise missile designed and manufactured domestically in Iran under its domestic weapons program started in 1992 as a response to the United States arms embargo. The missile intended for the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) naval forces has been designed to be carried inside a launch canister installed on a variety of light vessels and high speed missile crafts. The Zafar missile's design is optimized to make it very difficult to detect by hostile forces and jam using electronic warfare techniques. It is an active radar guided-missile equipped with a torpedo warhead capable of destroying small and medium displacement ships with high precision. The Iranian Ministry of Defense released the existence and the entry into active duty of Zafar short-range missile in early February 2012. It was first test fired successfully in April 2011. The Zafar cruise missile may feature supersonic speed but it has not been confirmed.
