The production line of Zolfaqar was inaugurated in a ceremony attended by Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan and Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.

According to Fars News, Zolfaqar, the latest generation of Iran's mid-range missiles, which was unveiled during the nationwide parades of Armed Forces on Wednesday, is capable of carrying MRV payloads and can rain down missiles on ground targets with a high level of precision-striking power. A Multiple Reentry Vehicle payload for a ballistic missile deploys multiple warheads in a pattern against a single target.

The missile can carry different types of ‘Blast’ and ‘MRV’ payloads to destroy a range of targets. The new version of Qadr H can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to their radar-evading capability.
