The Saqr is intended to replace the Kyrenaian Aircraft Factories KAF-14 Dabur Multirole Fighter, both on land-service and as a carrier-aircraft, both on the Hukm-class Aircraft Carriers and the Mirfae-class Heavy Aircraft Carriers.
The Saqr is equipped with a Qadib Passive Electronically Scanned Array Radar, the Saqr-B having a Mark II, an infrared search and track system, integrated electronic countermeasures, radar warning receivers and can be fully integrated into the Shabaka Combat Network.
The Saqr is able to supercruise and is, thanks to the thrust-vectoring nozzles, Supermaneuverable. Radar-absorbent materials have been applied liberally to reduce the detection range of enemy radars.
In total, the Saqr-A and -B have an arsenal of two Alqatat Gunsmiths 27mm Revolver Cannons and twelve hardpoints at their disposal. Of these, the revolver cannons are placed in the wing-roots, while two of the hardpoints are at the wingtips, two more under the fuselage, while the remaining eight are beneath the wings.
Saqr-TAs omit the fuselage hardpoints and the innermost two in order for an enhanced fuel capacity, lowering the number of hardpoints to eight.
