Description
The ANZA is a series of man-portable air defense missile system (MANPADS) designed and manufactured at the Institute of Industrial Control Systems, Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The Anza MK-1, Anza MK-2, and Anza MK-3 surface to air anti-aircraft missiles have ranges of 4, 5 and 6 km, respectively. The Anza MKI missiles, which have a range of 4.2 km, were manufactured and handed over to the military forces in 1990. It has been reported that the missile was used during the Kargil incidents between Pakistan and India. Pakistan downed two of India's military planes, a MIG-21 and a MIG-27, with the Anza MKI missiles for violating its airspace on 26 May 1999.
 
Main Variants
- Anza Mk-I: The first MANPADS produced by Pakistan for use by the Pakistan Army. Development is believed to have been assisted by China and the design is similar to the Russian-made SA-7 Grail.
- Anza Mk-II: A third generation MANPADS based on the Chinese QW-1 MANPADS.
- Anza Mk-III: Based on the Chinese-made QW-2 MANPADS, modifications made to meet Pakistan Army requirements include a new firing unit similar to the Russian 9K38 Igla MANPADS.

Launcher system
The Anza Mk-I is based on the design and the technology of the Russian-made MANPADS SA-7 Grail. The system is modified to suit the needs of Pakistani Forces. One such major modification is the firing unit, or "gripstock", which seems to be much modern in Anza Mark III. The Anza Mk-III is based on the Chinese-made QW-2, it has been locally modified to allow it to be used with Russian-made missiles
Missile
The Anza MK-II missile features proportional navigation and end-phase lead bias techniques which are the prevailing guidance techniques of portable missiles. Propulsion System of Anza MK-II adopts a separable structure that drops the launch motor and retains a dual thrust flight-motor (booster + sustainer) in order to reduce the unnecessary weight during flight. The Anza missile can flight at a maximum speed of 600 m/sec and carries 550 g. of warhead explosive. The Anza Mark III has a range of about five kilometers, and sensors that can defeat many anti-missile systems.
Operations
The Anza uses a Passive Infrared Seeker to home-in on its air borne target and needs no guidance from the operators to maintain lock on the target. This allows the operators to take cover or immediately get ready for engaging other targets.
Combat use
The Anza man-portable air defense missile can be used to target both fixed and rotary targets and the missile can be fired by one soldier. It can be launched in automatic mode as well as in manual mode.
