   The Iranian Zafar (victory) 8x8 special wheeled chassis was first revealed in 2014. It is likely that the main role of this truck is to carry various weapon systems, radars, shelters with command posts and other specialized military equipment. During the last couple of years Iran developed a number of indigenous vehicles, including multi-axles heavy high mobility trucks.

   This specialist vehicle is designed for operation on and off road. The Zafar has a payload capacity of 24 000 kg on moderately rough terrain. It is likely that this high mobility vehicle will be used to carry components of Iranian indigenous Bavar 373 long-range air defense missile system together with the new Zoljanah 10x10 special wheeled chassis.. It is claimed that the Bavar 373 is an improved version of the Soviet S-300 PMU.

   A forward control cab of the Zafar accommodates driver and one or two passengers. The cab is tilted forward for engine access and maintenance.

   This military truck is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine, developing about 400 hp. Engine is located under the cab. Vehicle has good cross-country mobility due to its independent suspension. The Zafar has two front steerable axles. It is claimed that this military truck has an operational range of 800 km.
