Iran has launched of the Zafar (Triumph) marine cruise missile for the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) naval forces, Iranian news networks Press TV reported on Saturday.

“Zafar is a radar-controlled, short range torpedo with the capability to destroy small and medium targets with high precession,” Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said.

The missile can be mounted on various kinds of light, high speed vessels, Vahidi said, adding that it highly effective in anti-electronic warfare.

In April 2011, Vahidi announced that the country had successfully test-fired the indigenous Zafar missile.

He provided no specifications but said they were "the fastest cruise missiles in the world".
