Kowsar (or Kosar) is a medium-range, land-based anti-ship missile made by Iran. It can defeat electronic jamming seestems and "cannot be thrown off course", according to Iranian officials.[1]

The Kowsar designation apparently (Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance 2006) is used to refer to two different missiles: Iranian-produced versions of the FRC C-701 and the TL-10A.
