Zoljanah [Fars News Agency]
Zoljanah appears to be a three stage launch vehicle using solid- and liquid-fueled stages. Stage 1 and 2 appear to be solid fueled stages of Sejil SRBM heritage. The third stage apparently based on Safir's stage 2. Zoljanah has been designed to take a 220 kg payload to a 500 km orbit — similar to Simorgh.
The vehicle stands 25.5 m tall. The first and second stage have a diameter of 1.5 m, while stage 3 and the payload fairing have a diameter of 1.25 m. It has a lift-off mass of 52 t.
The first suborbital flight took place in January 2021 from the Semnan missile range. An orbital flight is expected for later in 2022.
