Zafar is an Arabic/Muslim name meaning "victory" or "victor".

Zafar is a anti-ship missile, short-range radar and capable of targeting and destroying small and medium targets with high precision.

The features of the missile include the ability to install on a variety of lightweight, light weight, high-anti-warcraft and high-power demolition. The system is claimed to be 100% native and is made possible by highly qualified and efficient domestic experts.

The Zafar missile after the firing of the cruiser reaches the height to be hidden from the enemy's sight, and in the final stage after the target is discovered, at the bottom of the target, it destroys the target. The Zafar missile is capable of attacking targets every three seconds, individually. Cruise missiles hit the flight ceiling and a certain height from the surface to the planned target. The missiles are targeting the enemy with a precise, quick and easy planning. According to a Defense Department official, the missile has a longer range than the previous cruise missiles, which is a development in cruise missiles.

According to the official, cruise missiles strike at the flight ceiling and a certain height from the surface to the planned target, and they target the enemy with a precise, quick and easy planning. The cruise missile moves forward after firing at a low altitude and moves steadily and smartly towards the target, since the missile's original cost of using the jet engine is minimized.
