|Type||Quick reaction armored vehicle|
|Place of origin||Iran|
|Manufacturer||Defense Industries Organization|
|Single or double Toophan anti-tank missile launchers or two 23x 77 millimetres (3.0 in) rocket launchers|
The overall design is similar to that of the British FV101 Scorpion, and it is often mistaken as a Tosan tank. However, there are some major differences between the Sayyad and the Scorpion. The Sayyad is shorter in length than the Scorpion, and it has one less road wheel. The hull is slightly redesigned and storage baskets are also added.
There are two versions of the Sayyad. One with a single or double Toophan anti-tank missile launcher with six other missiles in storage baskets. The other with two 23x launchers of 77 millimetres (3.0 in) rockets.[dead link]
