It looks like there are some differences with the Saqr-1 compared to the original iranian supplied "358".The laser proximity fuse is absent and there looks to be 2 different sizes of imaging seeker also,one is of the original diameter used in the "358",but there is also a noticeably larger diameter seeker variant as well.

Some specifications:
The Saqr-1 air defense cruise missile, formerly known as "358", has a length of 2700mm, a diameter of 150mm, a weight of 58kg, a warhead weight of 10kg, a diameter of 30m warhead impact, a maximum speed of 200m/s [720 kph], a maximum range of 100km, a maximum altitude of 8.5km, thermal guidance.

جانشین پدافند هوایی ارتش: رادار ماورای افق سپهر به‌زودی عملیاتی می‌شود | خبرگزاری فارس


Key points:
Iran's first OTH radar 'Sepehr' with 3000km range will become operation in near future.

Army air defense has developed drones with 47000 ft flight ceiling

New missile of Bavar373 air defense system with 300km range will become operational soon.

Tactical Sayyad air defense system will have a 120km range, an increase from earlier versions which had a range of 60 and 80 kilometers, plus decreasing the number of required crews and vehicles.

Did you say OTH with 3000 km range?? As in three thousand and not three hundred (300)?

exactly as 3 thousands , and we already had at least 3x Ghadir with1000+km of range and the good part is all of them are built indigenously .
we usually use those 300km radars as part of air-defense battalion not as part of the backbone of our radar network system

Nice graphical representation how OTH work. As it can be seen,unlike conventional radars,OTH radars transmit and recive signals with help of ionosphere. Unlike conventional radars,OTH radar signal is transmited in to ionosphere,bounced from ionosphere,it reaches the target,than use same route back to OTH anntena. So,as it is clear,when we talk about range of OTH radar,it is not simple as with conventional radars. Because if you want OTH radar that will cover range 1000km from P.Gulf,deep in to S.Arabia...that OTH will be probably placed in central Iran...

Can it have a datalink to interceptor aircraft and feed them targeting data?

OTH provide general location not specific enough to be classified as target data.

You cannot use it for targeting. They are more likely early early warning radars. Hard to jam and cover vast distances. Basically they will be the first targets of any attack on Iran, but by then Iran will get what it wanted from them—a crucial early warning that war has started.

Once a specific threat has been identified, can't the smaller radars in that direction get to work to create a targeting picture and feed it to an interceptor over datalink? Methinks that would immediately strip invading bandits of cover.

Today datalink is something you can easily install every where,and it is part of every ground base and air borne communication system. Even original F14 have digital datalink,IRIAF F14 were delivered without datalink but that is very easily to install even 30 years ago IRIAF could do it,because F14 already have central digital integrated system,it can proces and share data by default,you just need datalink device installed,which is basicly modem+encription. On other aircrafts that could be something Iran can do easily today,and I think it is done on many aircrafts,at least those they upgrade. I saw Iranian made avionics for Kowsar and if you look specification,you can see that networking is available by default on every comunication device and computer managment devices..etc. Datalink was big deal 40 yrs ago,today you have modems on your smartphone..and it is not science fiction to feed that information in to existing system. Whole point of integrated air defense network is networking and data sharing,and just think about things we have access comercialy today...
