Falaq launcher, which is capable of opening heavy fire on the targets, enjoys high maneuverability. It can also be stationed rapidly and has good mobility for difficult terrains, the minister explained.

"When equipped with the Falaq 1 and 2 rockets, the new launcher system can hit the targets within a range of 10 kilometers," he added.

"Thanks to the high destructive power of the Falaq rocket’s warhead, the proper area that its shrapnel covers and the tactical features of the rocket launcher, Iranian forces will have the power to fight the ground battles proportional to the threats," Dehqan explained.

Zafar has also two steerable axles. It is equipped with anti-modern war systems, has an operational range of 800 kilometers and can carry loads up to 24 tons and pass steep slopes, deep waters and stair-like obstacles.

The vehicle can carry various types of launchers, missiles, radars, rockets and command posts, the minister added.
