I'm gonna get heat for this comment but, when u have to go through the trouble of creating an extra harpoints and then reevaluating the planes aerodynamics (even the smallest addition can throw the plane out of balance, when aerodynamic characteristics are considered) then why not integrate it in the nose of the plane and use that place for something else?

This looks like a half assed job, like usual coming from Pakistan defense predictions. Just like those cheap hinges

Hi,

With modern day fly by wire aircraft not a lot has to be done to the aerodynamics on an aircraft that is already in service---.

Don't underestimate the design / utility of the Paf design team
